Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been on track to shatter a variety of box office records.
There stands a chance that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will have an opening weekend gross of more than $175 million. As the premiere of the movie draws nearer, it is anticipated that the number will continue to rise. It seems like Wakanda Forever will smash the November opening weekend record of $158 million set by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Back in February of 2018, “Black Panther” had a domestic opening weekend gross of $202 million when it first hit theaters. The picture went on to earn more than $1.34 billion worldwide, placing it as the fourteenth highest-grossing feature film of all time.
Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Black Panther, passes away at the age of 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer. His death came two years after the premiere of the film and T’Challa’s return in Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel Endgame. Marvel chose not to recast T’Challa for the sequel, instead passing the mantle of Black Panther to a new character.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is presently slated to arrive on November 11, 2022.
