Biography

Coogler nait le 23 mai 1986 à Oakland en Californie. Sa mère Joselyn est animatrice sociale, et son père, Ira Coogler, est conseiller de probation pour mineurs. Il a deux frères.

Coogler a grandi à Oakland avant de déménager à Richmond à l'âge de huit ans. Durant sa jeunesse, il pratique la course à pieds et le football américain. Il étudie à la Saint Mary's College High School où il obtient une bourse pour étudier la chimie, mais sa professeure d'anglais lui conseille de s'orienter vers l'écriture. Après l'annulation du programme de football de son école, il obtient une bourse et part pour Sacramento State, où il fait partie de l'équipe de football, obtient son diplôme en finance tout en prenant autant de cours de cinéma que son emploi du temps de sportif lui permettait. Il s'inscrit ensuite à l'USC School of Cinematic Arts, et y réalise ses premiers courts-métrages.


Carrière
Après une série de courts-métrages remarqués ou récompensés en festivals, Ryan Coogler réalise Fruitvale Station, un film sur les dernières 24 heures d'Oscar Grant, mort abattu par un policier dans une station du Bay Area Rapid Transit. Le projet lui a été confié par Forest Whitaker, qui produit le film.

Il rejoint ensuite le projet d'un spin-off à la saga de films Rocky, Creed : L'Héritage de Rocky Balboa, centré sur le fils d'Apollo Creed, dont il écrit le scénario avec Aaron Covington.

Devant le succès du film, Marvel Studios entre en contact avec lui pour la réalisation de l'adaptation de comics Black Panther ; il rejoint le projet officiellement en janvier 2016. Le film Black Panther sort en février 2018.

Adonis Johnson Creed grew up without knowing his father Apollo, the one-time world heavyweight champion, and struggles to channel the strength, skill and toughness he inherited from him. After a fight in prison, he receives a visit from Rocky Balboa. Rocky had been given a world title shot by Apollo when he was just a club fighter in Philadelphia (Rocky), had eventually won Apollo's title in a rematch (Rocky II), had befriended him and been coached by him, rediscovering what Apollo called his "eye of the tiger" (Rocky III) and had been in Apollo's corner when Apollo had died in the ring against Ivan Drago (Rocky IV). Rocky shows Adonis who Apollo was and shows he believes Adonis can be a great like his father. Adonis tracks down Rocky at Adrian's Restaurant - the Italian restaurant in Philadelphia that Rocky owns and operates, named after his late wife - and asks Rocky to train him, and although Rocky is reluctant to re-enter the sport of boxing, having already suffered from trauma to the brain (Rocky V) and made a one-off comeback at a very advanced age (Rocky Balboa) before re-entering retirement, Rocky agrees.
