Any Marvel Cinematic Universe film to top the box office is hardly remarkable if it’s the bare minimum expected of the all-conquering franchise, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has nonetheless managed to live up to the hype and expectations, setting an impressive record.
With an estimated US debut of $180 million, Ryan Coogler’s sequel has had the highest-grossing November release of any feature film, setting a record The Hunger Games: Catching Fire lasted nine years. Not only that, but Ryan Coogler is only the second director in history (and first solo filmmaker) to have two consecutive films above that number open Avengers: Infinity War and endgame Duo Joe and Anthony Russo the others.
on top of that, Wakanda forever has raked in a massive $330 million when international numbers are factored in, meaning the latest chapter in the MCU is already over Black Adam both domestically and internationally, which only goes to show how bulletproof and nearly omnipotent the Marvel Studios brand continues to be.
Ratings may have fallen slightly, and there is very little chance Black Panther 2 The talk of a Best Picture nomination may be close, but to be a third of the way to $1 billion after just three days in theaters is nonetheless an achievement from hell.
Phase Four has been a bumpy ride for the franchise as it enters a brand new era, but at least we know for sure it’s going to end with a bang Wakanda forever sucking up a huge pile of cash from anywhere in the world.
