Ryan Kyle Coogler was born on May 23, 1986, in Oakland, California, and is an American actor and director. He grew up in Oakland and Richmond, California, with his mother, Joselyn, who worked as a community organizer, his father, Ira, who worked as a juvenile hall probation counselor, and his brothers, Keenan and Noah, who both played football. Ryan enjoyed sports as a child, particularly football and track, and he went on to attend Saint Mary’s College High School in Berkeley, where he excelled in both sports. In 2011, Coogler was awarded a football scholarship to Saint Mary’s College of California, and his professor encouraged him to pursue a degree in screenwriting after seeing him in a creative writing class. After the school’s football program was terminated in early 2004, Ryan transferred to Sacramento State (also on a scholarship), where he played football for four years and earned a bachelor’s degree in finance while also enrolling in several film courses. Later, after being accepted into the three-year master’s program at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, he went on to direct four short films, including “Locks,” which was nominated for the Dana and Albert Broccoli Award for Filmmaking Excellence at the Tribeca Film Festival. Another short film, “Fig,” won the DGA Student Film Award as well as the HBO Short Film Competition, and the short film “Gap” was nominated for the Jack Nicholson Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement.

“Fruitvale Station” had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013, and The Weinstein Company acquired the distribution rights for a reported $2 million. The film, which starred Michael B. Jordan, who would go on to work with Coogler on a number of projects, went on to gross $17.4 million worldwide against a $900,000 budget. For the 2015 film “Creed,” which was a spin-off/sequel to the “Rocky” series and grossed $173.6 million at the box office, Ryan reunited with the film’s star for the second time. Afterward, he worked as an executive producer on the sequel to “Creed,” though he did not direct the movie.

His next project was the mega-hit “Black Panther,” which starred Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danei Gurira, and Daniel Kaluuya among other notable actors and actresses. Ryan was the youngest person to ever direct a Marvel film, and he will be directing “Black Panther II” in the near future.

After the tragic death of actor Chadwick Boseman from colon cancer in August 2020, Coogler released a heartfelt statement about the star, saying, “I’d spent the previous year preparing, imagining, and writing words for him to say in the event that we weren’t going to see him in person. Being unable to watch another close-up of him on the monitor or approach him and request another take leaves me feeling broken.”

After signing a five-year deal with Ryan’s production company, Proximity Media, it was announced in February 2021 that Ryan would be developing a series set in the fictional Kingdom of Wakanda for the streaming service Disney+. Ryan received an Academy Award nomination for his performance in the Coogler-produced film “Judas and the Black Messiah,” which premiered in 2021 and won several awards.
