Marvel's Black Panthermovie might not hit theaters until 2018, but the anticipated film has officially landed a director. During an interview with Empire Magazine, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that Creed's Ryan Coogler will direct the movie, reports Polygon.
In addition to confirming Coogler's role, Feige disclosed that Black Panther will be the first Marvel film to feature a majority black cast, though the only confirmed cast member is currently Chadwick Boseman. Beyond that, Feige was fairly tight-lipped about the film, only saying that it will be "a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T'Challa in Wakanda and what it means to be a king."
