Female-centric spin-off of Black Panther a good idea: Director Ryan Coogler

The filmmaker says that such an opportunity will be amazing

Published: 12th May 2018

Following the massive success of Black Panther, director Ryan Coogler says a spin-off centering on the women of Wakanda will be a good idea.

"Oh man. That would be amazing if the opportunity came up. They did it in the comic-book version," says Coogler.

The Black Panther comic book relaunch from Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreze was released in 2016. It focused on the Dora Milaje, Wakanda's team of elite female fighters. Later, the World of Wakanda series that focused on Ayo and Aneka came out. It saw two women falling in love while training to become Dora.

In addition, writer Nnedi Okorafor and artist Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque are planning for the release of their latest comic titled Wakanda Forever: The Amazing Spider-Man. It is a team-up comic featuring the Dora and Marvel's Spider-Man.

About the importance of the women of Wakanda, Coogler says, "I think you could argue they are more important. There's a whole section of the film where T'Challa is out of the movie and you're just following the women. That's one of my favorite parts of the movie when I watched it, and I didn't expect that. These actresses could easily carry their own movie."
