vulture, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed to Empire that Ryan Coogler would helm the film featuring a "mostly black cast." "This one is important," Feige said. "Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore." Before Coogler's name was in the mix, Marvel was reportedly courting Selma's Ava DuVernay for the job of bringing Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa to the screen, but she declined the offer because it "wasn't going to be an Ava DuVernay film."
Coogler will be only the second Marvel director not to be a white guy, after Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi. Either way, it's been an impressive rise for the 29-year-old director, whose previous film, Fruitvale Station, won him the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature in 2014.
