Potentially big news, Black Panther fans!

According to The Verge, Marvel have locked in a director for the  2017 Black Panther movie…

Empire Magazine have reported the news that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have confirmed Creed’s Ryan Coogler will now officially direct. You may remember we reported on this a while back (here).

We’ll hold tight for a while since we are still waiting on an officially official announcement but we’re going to go with the idea that there’s no smoke without fire.Let us know if you think Coogler is the man for the job in the usual ways.

Chadwick Boseman will star as T’Challa/Black Panther when the movie arrives on July 6th, 2018.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
