Biography Timeline


Coogler was born on May 23, 1986, in Oakland, California. His mother, Joselyn (née Thomas), is a community organizer, and his father, Ira Coogler, is a juvenile hall probation counselor. Both parents graduated from California State University, Hayward. He has two brothers, Noah and Keenan. His uncle, Clarence Thomas, is a third-generation Oakland longshoreman, and the former secretary treasurer of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union.


After Saint Mary's canceled its football program in March 2004, Coogler transferred and earned a scholarship to Sacramento State, where he grabbed 112 receptions for 1,213 yards and 6 touchdowns during his four years playing football. At Sacramento, he obtained a bachelor's degree in finance and also took as many film classes as he could fit in with the rigors of college football. Following graduation, he was accepted into the highly competitive three-year master's program at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where he made a series of short films.


Coogler's first feature-length film, Fruitvale Station (originally titled Fruitvale), tells the story of the last 24 hours of the life of Oscar Grant, who was shot to death by a police officer at Oakland's Fruitvale BART station on January 1, 2009. The film was developed and produced by Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker. "I've worked with a number of truly unique voices, true auteurs," Whitaker said of Coogler, "and I can tell when I'm talking to one."


In July 2013, it was reported that MGM had offered Coogler to direct Creed, a spin-off sequel of the Rocky films, which he had written with Aaron Covington .

In January 2013, Coogler said he was working on a graphic novel and young adult novel about an undisclosed subject matter.


Creed, which was released on November 25, 2015 in the United States, reunited Coogler with Fruitvale actor Michael B. Jordan, who played Apollo Creed's son Donnie. The film was widely praised by critics.


In January 2016, Coogler signed on to co-write and direct the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther, making him the youngest Marvel Studios filmmaker. The film, starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, began production in January 2017, and was released in 2018. Michael B. Jordan appeared as main antagonist Erik Killmonger, having thus starred in all of Coogler's featur films.


Upon release, the film was an overwhelming commercial success, grossing the fifth largest opening weekend box-office results of all-time, as well as the second highest four-day gross in history. It eventually became the highest-grossing film in history directed by an African American. After the release of A Wrinkle in Time in March 2018, it was the first time the top two films at the box office were directed by an African American filmmaker— Coogler for Black Panther and Ava DuVernay for A Wrinkle in Time which was a box office bomb.

Kevin Feige confirmed in April 2018 that Marvel Studios plans to create a sequel to Black Panther once Coogler returns to direct it. In October 2018, Coogler had completed a deal to write and direct a sequel to Black Panther.
