Ryan Coogler is up for making a female-focused 'Black Panther' spin-off

Director Ryan Coogler would jump at the opportunity to make a Black Panther spin-off movie focusing on the women in the superhero blockbuster.

When speaking about introducing audiences around the world to the fictional African kingdom of Wakanda, Coogler said that "I was trying to capture that feeling I had when I visited the continent the first time".

"You have to be realistic about what we do".

Before the film premiered, many were raising money to take their students to see the movie; even Ellen Degeneres joined in and donated money so kids from Harlem's Boys & Girls Club could go.

In his recent two-hour talk at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday afternoon (May 10), Coogler turned the spotlight on the female characters in the Marvel film and their importance to the overall story.

Although nothing is set in stone-and Marvel is staying mum on the future of the MCU beyond Avengers 4 for now, a Black Panther sequel is pretty much a sure thing.

Teenager arrested after classmate shot with rifle at high school
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies are responding to a report of a man with a gun at a high school in the city of Palmdale. The shooter was detained off campus by officers, at a Vons grocery store, near the school's premises, as reported by CNN .

Martin Freeman thinks the potential influence of "Black Panther" has been overstated.

"Oh man, that would be wonderful if the opportunity ever came up", he gushed during a recent talk at the Cannes Film Festival. About half of ticket sales were overseas.

"My mind is being stretched by what we as people can do", he said. He also showed interest in creating a female-oriented spinoff. One that sounds out, though, is how respected and fierce women are portrayed to be in the film. "You find these incredibly layered women (who are) smart, heads of household".

Still, the film also reflected on the dangers of home life as a Black man in Oakland, Calif.

He added existing in this country as a Black man means "25 is the like magic number that you're either dead or in jail". "They said they wanted "Panther" to feel like their James Bond, which I was excited about, because I love James Bond movies".
