The official CinemaScore rating for Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been released.
At the moment, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the most successful movie ever at the box office worldwide. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Wakanda must contend with T’Challa’s death and the threat posed by the Talocans, commanded by Namor, in the Marvel Studios sequel. The movie is currently accessible in the majority of markets, and CinemaScore has made public its audience rating.
In February 2018, audience exit polling yielded an A+ CinemaScore for the first Black Panther film. The Marvel Studios film also received a 96% rating on the well-known review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, while its follow-up, Wakanda Forever, has an 84 percent rating based on 324 reviews from Tomato-approved critics.
Spider-Man: No Way Home scored an A+, Black Widow received an A-, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings got an A, Eternals received a B, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness received a B+, and Thor: Love and Thunder received a B+, all in comparison to the other films in Marvel’s Phase 4 CinemaScore report card.
It’s obvious that audience responses to the most recent phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are somewhat more conflicted, especially when compared to earlier phases where the enthusiasm was undoubtedly higher prior to Avengers: Endgame.
Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played T’Challa, died at the age of 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer, two years after the release of Black Panther and T’Challa’s reappearance in Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel Endgame. The role of Black Panther was assumed by T’Challa’s sister Shuri after Marvel decided against recasting T’Challa.
