Ryan Coogler is the director behind Marvel’s Wakanda Forever. With the extremely recent teaser for the film, it is clear that the director had heavy expectations to fulfill. Despite the fact that the late actor, Chadwick Boseman, was the main lead actor in its previous installment; the teaser shows that the talents of the cast will be more than enough to keep the franchise going. They even displayed a mural for the character that Chadwick Boseman played within the teaser in a manner of paying respect to his work in the franchise.
Wakanda Forever directed by Ryan Coogler
One of the most promising young filmmakers today, Ryan Coogler, has seen a meteoric ascent to fame over the past ten years. For his debut feature, Fruitvale Station, the American filmmaker took home the top audience and grand jury prizes at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. He directed Creed, the seventh installment in the Rocky franchise, and then, in 2018, he reached his early pinnacle while working with Chadwick Boseman on the movie Black Panther.
When the film was released, Black Panther received tremendous praise from critics and set numerous records at the box office. As the highest-grossing African American-directed movie of all time, the movie represented a tremendous accomplishment for Ryan Coogler.
What does Ryan Coogler have to say about females being directors?
The director recently attended a Variety interview. In the interview, the director shared his thoughts on what the film industry could be if it was more open for females to direct films more often.
“You know, we’re going to get better movies [if we have more female filmmakers]. “The industry would improve. Put it on the record. I mean, it’s true, bro. In film school, life, whatever, they’re equipped to do this job, in many ways, better than us. They’re infinitely more complex than we are. Stronger and sharper.”
Fans have even praised the director for hiring females to work in his films. Twitter user @miyafilms even pointed out that the cinematographer for the film is a woman!
He always hires women DPs! And has straight up said in interviews that he thinks women are better filmmakers than men, so we gotta stan https://t.co/Lfd5m1STrK

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might just be the film to put Marvel back on top
Marvel released a teaser trailer for Wakanda Forever recently at the San Diego Comic-Con. Ramonda, played by Angela Bassett, was depicted as Wakanda’s queen in the teaser. There is a conflict between one tribe and the government’s military. There are house fires. In the conclusion, we see a person wearing a Black Panther outfit, but we are unsure of their wearer. The Wailers’ “No Woman No Cry” plays because this is a particularly female-centric story. We can envision beaches in Wakanda’s new surroundings. Speaking angrily, Ramonda is shown saying, “My entire family is gone.” Needless to say, the highly anticipated film has all the fans hyped up for its release.
Wakanda Forever will release on November 11th, 2022.
