Writer-director Ryan Coogler is making another Marvel TV show for Disney Plus that will be set in the Kingdom of Wakanda as a feature of a five-year TV exclusivity deal with Coogler’s production banner, Proximity Media (which incorporates directors Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis, and Peter Nicks close by Coogler himself).
Coogler — who directed and co-composed Black Panther, and is set to compose and direct a sequel Black Panther II for release on July 8th, 2022 — will build up the new Wakanda Disney Plus series as his first project under the new deal, Deadline reports.
The deal with Proximity Media likewise incorporates the alternative to make shows for different parts of the Disney banner, not simply Marvel Studios. As per Coogler, “We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.”
There’s little data on the new Wakanda show itself, yet apparently the show will keep on expanding on the establishment that Coogler has set with both Black Panther and the upcoming sequel.
At whatever point it shows up, however, Coogler’s Wakanda series will mark the most recent in a nearly dizzying number of TV shows that are anticipated Disney Plus. The streaming service has just commenced its run of Marvel Studios shows with WandaVision, which is at present airing. It’ll be followed soon after by The Falcon and The Winter Solider in March, Loki in May, alongside Hawkeye, Ms. Wonder, and the animated What If…? later in 2021.
Other previously declared shows incorporate Moon Knight, She-Hulk, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, Secret Invasion, Ironheart, Armor Wars, and I Am Groot, which are all scheduled to show up on Disney Plus in the coming years.
