The last movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, passed the $ 300 million mark at the American box office and became the 7th film to achieve this in 2022. The film came close to the gross of “Thor: Love and Thunder” in just two weeks.
The movie, which was released on November 11, closed the 4th phase of the MCU and was generally liked more than other films in this phase.
As the Thanksgiving weekend in the US approaches, the revenue of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has successfully increased by $9.6 million since the beginning of the week, reaching a total of $303.6 million. The movie has only been in theaters for two weeks, so its revenue will increase even more. However, it should not be forgotten that despite having a magnificent opening in the first weekend in the vision, it entered the second weekend with a 63% decline…
Other movies with a total gross of over $300 million at the US box office in 2022 are: The Batman, Top Gun: Maverick, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Jurassic World: Dominion, Thor: Love and Thunder and Minions: The Rise of Gru .
Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” sequel, directed by Sam Raimi, which was released in May this year, reached an angle of $187 million and earned a total of $411 million. Worldwide, it has achieved a very successful gross of $ 955 million. “Thor: Love and Thunder”, which was released in July, opened with 144 million dollars and reached a total of 343 million dollars.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will likely surpass “Love and Thunder”‘s earnings next week, but time will tell if the movie will be as successful as “Doctor Strange 2”.
