Vulture's Kyle Buchanan also wrote about Marvel's Oscar chances, writing that Black Panther should at the very least be considered for its costume design, "This film, which truly does bring elements to the superhero genre that have not been seen onscreen before, has a strong chance of breaking into a category that Marvel has never been competitive in, Best Costume Design".

As the MCU expands, and as some stories conclude in the wake of climactic events like Infinity War, there's room for supporting characters to take on leading roles in future films.

Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan also thinks that Black Panther will undoubtedly make it to Academy Awards 2019 nominations.
"I think there's lots of potential", he said. And if Black Panther performs the way those other movies did in that country, it stands to add an extra $100-150 million to its coffers from it alone.
There are some hints about what else might be explored in the world of Wakanda as we get closer to a sequel, and some of the mystical elements sound like they might get more time.
