Marvel Studios is secretive about its MCU movie release dates, and while president Kevin Feige has confirmed a sequel to Black Panther is in the works, there has been no news of an official release date. But when Marvel parent company Disney shuffled its 2020-2022 movie release schedule recently, it might have given the game away.

Comic Book Releases reports that the shuffle saw an as-yet-untitled Marvel film have its release date shifted from July 30, 2021 to February 12, 2021 — which is notable, as it's almost three years to the day from the original Black Panther's international release. The first film's release date was particularly significant as February is Black History Month.

Until 2016's Deadpool, mid-February wasn't exactly a prime slot for major superhero flicks, but with the first Black Panther's runaway box office success and February's cultural significance, it would appear Marvel and Disney don't want to mess with a winning formula.

The other significant change to the schedule was the confirmation that Indiana Jones 5 will be delayed for another year.

On the prospect of a Black Panther sequel, Feige told Entertainment Weekly back in March, “One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther,” adding that the sequel already has a “solid direction.”

Despite sequel details being thin on the ground, it's expected that director Ryan Coogler will sit in the director's chair once more. As always, though, we'll keep you updated as official news drops.
