Black Panther 2 Box Office Sales and Wakanda Forever End Credits Explained

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever broke a box office record in November after just a few days.

The sequel from 2018 Black Panther It is estimated to have taken US$180 million (£152.5 million) at the box office, including preview sales.

Those numbers rank it as the biggest-ever November release in the US and the second-biggest of the year domestically behind Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnesswhich cost $7 million (£5.9 million) more.

Last November was a record holder in the US The Hunger Games: Catching Firewhich grossed US$158m (£134m) in 2013.

Worldwide, at the time of writing, Wakanda forever has amassed $330 million (£279.5 million) in revenue. Hit Doctor Strange 2 As the biggest film of the year, it must surpass $955.7 million (£810 million).

The new film had the difficult task of continuing the story without its leading man after the death of Chadwick Boseman in August 2020.

Boseman, who was diagnosed with cancer four years ago, kept his illness a secret from the world. After the actor’s death, director Ryan Coogler remade the film to focus on Shuri (Letitia Wright), sister of Boseman’s King T’Challa.

The new film sees Shuri and her Wakandan compatriots face a menace in the form of Namor (Tenoch Huerta), king of the underwater city of Talokan – a story that might come as no surprise when you discover a seemingly expendable lineage Avengers: Endgame.

While Huerta deserves credit for his performance, it’s the film’s way of addressing Boseman’s death, as well as a moving mid-credits scene, that will leave a lasting impression on viewers.

*Spoilers to follow – you have been warned*

The end credits scene addresses an earlier mystery presented in the film: the absence of T’Challa’s lover, Nakia (Lupits Nyong’o), following his death.

Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) tracks down Nakia in Haiti and rebukes her for not being present at her son’s funeral. But in the mid-credits scene, it is revealed that T’Challa had sent Nakia away when she was pregnant with their child and he wanted his inheritance pulled away from Wakanda.

The scene shows Shuri sitting on a beach mourning the loss of her brother six years later. Here she meets T’Challa’s young son, Toussaint, whose Wakanda name is the same as his father’s.

It’s an emotional end to a critically tumultuous fourth phase for Marvel, which included movies Black widow, Shang Chi and eternal. The highest-rated Marvel projects have been his TV shows, including WandaVision, Loki and hawk eye.

The end to Wakanda forever infuses the Black Panther franchise with a sense of optimism and gives viewers hope that Boseman’s spirit will live on in the form of his character’s child.

Of course, the film left film fans behind emotionally, with many saying they “cried” and “sobbed” while watching.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in cinemas now. The film also stars Danai Gurira and Martin Freeman – but not Daniel Kaluuya, whose absence was explained by Coogler.
