The female warriors ofare fierce and fabulous, so why not give them their own women-centric spin-off? director Ryan Coogler couldn't agree with the idea more.
When asked if the women of Black Panther were just as important as the men during a talk at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, Coogler responded, "I think you could argue they are more important," according to Variety.
"We have these actresses who could easily carry their own movie."
Coogler is on board with the idea of an all-women Black Panther movie, especially if someone asked him to do it. (We're looking at you, Marvel Studios.)
In fact when asked that same question during the Cannes interview, he replied, "That would be amazing if the opportunity came up. They did it in the comic book version."
While Marvel Studios doesn't always follow the Marvel comic storylines exactly in its movie adaptations and TV shows, that doesn't mean it can't happen. With Black Panther especially, the creators of the hit film drew onfor inspiration.
Plus the fan interest in Black Panther's female warriors has already been proven. The real-life inspiration for the Black Panther female warriors is getting a TV show just about them.
Here's hoping Marvel is listening and the women of Wakanda get their own much-deserved movie.
