The king is back.
In the middle of the announcement that release dates for
due to the nearly all Disney films are being pushed back came the news that two anticipated coronavirus pandemic MCU sequels will debut in 2022. Black Panther 2 is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 6, and is set to hit theaters July 8. Captain Marvel 2
The two sequels were previously announced last year (which admittedly feels like a million years ago), but the date announcements were a surprise in the middle of
and while it feels as though shelter-in-place orders around the world . every blockbuster film release has been postponed to direct the Wakanda sequel, but little else is known, about the plot or even the returning cast. The last we saw of T'Challa and the Dora Milaje was when half of them (we assume) returned from limbo to help Ryan Coogler is set to return . We assume defeat Thanos in Avengers: Endgame will return as Okoye, because Danai Gurira she confirmed as much at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, and we'd bet money on returning as the king, along with Chadwick Boseman Letitia Wright as Shuri.
As for the Captain Marvel sequel, even less is known. We know that an adult
Monica Rambeau, daughter of Carol Danvers' best friend in Captain Marvel, will star in the upcoming and be played by Disney Plus show WandaVision Teyonah Parris. But since no official plot or cast announcements have been made as of yet, we can't even be sure this will factor into the sequel film (all signs point very strongly to "possibly," however).
There's been no word yet on any
Disney Plus MCU shows getting pushed back, in large part because none of them had announced release dates prior to the mass postponement of shows and movies.
