Black Panther director Ryan Coogler spoke to reporters at the Cannes Film Festival and revealed some interesting insights into what could be in store for the Marvel Studios' franchise.

Director Ryan Coogler poses for photographers during a photo call at the 71st worldwide film festival, Cannes, southern France, Thursday, May 10, 2018. "That would be awesome if that opportunity came up". "I would watch a movie with them!"

In preparing the film, Coogler said he realized that the story of "Black Panther" - about a young man ascending to a family throne - bore many similarities to "The Godfather". That part of it was exciting.

Marvel has teamed with LEGO to launch a new animated short series based on our favorite heroes titled "Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda". "These actresses could easily carry their own movie", he said.

If the opportunity ever presented itself, Coogler would most definitely be interested in created a spinoff for the female voices of Black Panther.

The success of Black Panther and movies like Hidden Figures, A Wrinkle in Time, and Wonder Woman made a point that audiences will make a point to see and celebrate movies that feature characters who look like them or who they can relate to. "They said they wanted "Panther" to feel like their James Bond, which I was excited about, because I love James Bond movies".

Critics especially praised its strong women characters such as Nakia (Lupita Nyongo), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and Shuri (Letitia Wright).
