The domestic box office for Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has surpassed $400 million.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever held the top spot at the domestic box office in its fifth weekend of release because it faced no significant competition. The Marvel film also surpassed $400 million in North American box office receipts, becoming the third film this year to do so following Top Gun: Maverick and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Based on a screenplay that he and Joe Robert Cole co-wrote, Ryan Coogler directed Wakanda Forever. Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta, Michaela Coel, and Lupita Nyong’o are some of the actors that appear in the film.
Two years after the release of Black Panther and T’Challa’s return in Avengers: Infinity War and its follow-up Endgame, Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played T’Challa, passed away at the age of 43 following a four-year struggle with colon cancer. After Marvel opted against recasting T’Challa, Shuri stepped into the role of Black Panther.
