‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ has already made more than $500 million, this movie released on the 11th November and has already been rated No. 14 highest-grossing movie ever
Marvel Studios is hoping that “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will become its 11th billion-dollar grossing film.
The sequel to 2018′s “Black Panther”, which earned $1.3 billion and is currently the No. 14 highest-grossing movie ever made, has had a strong performance at the box office since its Nov. 11 release.
“Wakanda Forever” is more than halfway to the billion-dollar mark, with a $552 million gross as of Nov. 23, according to Box Office Mojo data, including a $293 million domestic haul ahead of the lucrative Thanksgiving weekend.
The home of characters like Spider-Man and Captain America has almost single-handedly transformed the blockbuster moviegoing experience into the domain of superheroes and franchise entertainment.
And that has paid off handsomely for parent company Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009 for $4 billion.
Since the release of 2010′s “Iron Man 2”, Marvel has helped Disney rake in $22.5 billion at the global box office. In 2022 alone, “Thor: Love and Thunder” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” brought in a combined $1.69 billion.
