Marvel and director Ryan Coogler announced at Disney’s D23 expo Saturday that Black Panther II will hit theaters in May 2022.

Although a sequel to the blockbuster superhero film was a given considering its massive box office success, when the Marvel Cinematic Universe unveiled its initial Phase 4 schedule, the years 2020 and 2021 were stocked with new franchises (The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Disney+ series (WandaVision, The Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye) and sequels like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder, but no Black Panther follow-up.

However, to kick off the D23 expo, Marvel Entertainment put to rest all concerns by announcing that Black Panther II would arrive May 6th, 2022.

Additionally, following a day of speculation that had Game of Thrones star Kit Harington entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe as everyone from Wolverine to a Doctor Strange villain, it was revealed that the Jon Snow portrayer would be in The Eternals as “Black Knight” Dane Whitman (via Variety), joining a cast that already includes Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

During the Disney+ panel Friday, MCU head Kevin Feige announced that three additional series – Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and Moon Knight – are also in the works for the streaming service.
