Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to hit theaters, and it’s no surprise that it’s already made big bucks for the studio. In fact, it helped prop Disney to more than $3 billion at the box office this year. Now the movie has hit a major milestone by passing $500 million worldwide after being out for two weekends.
According to BoxOfficeReport.com, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever grossed an estimated $69.8 million internationally this weekend, bringing the international total to approximately $258.3 million and the estimated worldwide total to $546.3 million. The film has a long way to go to reach the amount earned by the former Black Pantherwhich earned $1,346,913,161 and became the 14th highest-grossing film of all time and the sixth highest domestically.
While it is unlikely Wakanda forever will surpass its predecessor, the film will be largely unchallenged at the box office for weeks to come, including during the all-important Thanksgiving holiday. The biggest upcoming challenge for the sequel will be Avatar: the way of the water, but that won’t hit theaters until mid-December.
Why does Wakanda forever Do you only have a Mid Credits scene?
Recently, ComicBook. coms Phase zero podcast had the chance to chat with many of the people who created it Wakanda forever to happen. One such person is Nate Moore, who has been a producer on multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, including both Black Panther movies. The sequel only has a mid-credits scene and Moore explained why there was no end tag like in most movies.
That director Ryan Coogler initially Namor (Tenoch Huerta) at the end of the first Black Panther came, so we asked if there was anyone they wanted to introduce at the end of the sequel. “Not this time, you know, of course this movie is a little bit different and the tone of this movie is a little bit different and it felt mostly, once people saw the movie, we thought the ending was so poetic, to go then go back and say, ‘Hey, there’s a tag on the credits’ felt a little insincere tonality of what we were doing,” Moore explained. “Just like Endgame had no tag, this didn’t feel like a movie that needed it.”
