A 'Black Panther' sequel has been green-lit - here's what to expect

A 'Black Panther' sequel has been green-lit - here's what to expect

Forbes reports this weekend that Black Panther crossed $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide yesterday, becoming only the 33rd film ever to cross this financial marker, while A Wrinkle In Time has held down solid ticket sales of $34 million (£25 million). Overseas, the Marvel title now ranks above almost all recent comic-book movie adaptations.

Black Panther has been doing extremely well at the box office.

Speaking of which, when will the Black Panther DVD & Blu-ray arrive? We're looking into it. While it was one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the year, it's clear that Black Panther has surpassed all expectations and has become an enormous critical and commercial success for Marvel Studios. "Get Out" opened a little below that, but already earned $100 million.

After the death of his father (shown in "Captain America: Civil War"), T'Challa (Black Panther) returns home to his African nation of Wakanda to take on his role as the new king. The world of black filmmaking is so small that DuVernay was actually approached and turned down directing Black Panther in 2015 due to "creative differences" before Coogler.

What had been pegged as a close contest among Disney titles for first place turned into a relatively easy victory for "Black Panther".

To look at it another way: The first 11 days of March 2018 saw a domestic box office total of $347 million.; March 2017 brought in $1.163 million. "I'm not saying we're doing that, but I'm saying that we're intrigued by them".

As it turns out, even the most engaging Marvel films need to go through the editing process - but Black Panther's editor admitted that two of the movie's scenes in particular were nearly painful for him to part with. "Maze Runner: The Death Curse" was a near flop in North America, but 80 percent of its gross came from foreign. "Our privilege allows us to live in a world where movies are just entertainment, not moments of cultural importance".

Thankfully, all the destinations benefitting from the Black Panther effect just happen to be stunning in their own right.

As a virtually all-American production, "Black Panther" is an incredibly positive achievement.
