It’s been rumored for a while that Creed director Ryan Coogler was being eyes for the job of directing Marvel‘s Black Panther movie, but now it’s official.

Marvel president Kevin Feige released the following statement concerning Coogler and Black Panther.

We are fortunate to have such an esteemed filmmaker join the Marvel family, The talents Ryan showcased in his first two films easily made him our top choice to direct ‘Black Panther.’ Many fans have waited a long time to see Black Panther in his own film, and with Ryan we know we’ve found the perfect director to bring T’Challa’s story to life.

Coogler did such an awesome job with Creed I’m really looking forward to what he brings to Black Panther.
