Wakanda Forever: 'Black Panther' Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

Black Panther Dunkirk Christopher Nolan

Before you get too excited, let me be clear that a film series about Black Panther's fierce warrior Okoye (Danai Gurira) is still but a bubble of a fantasy in the president of Marvel Studios' mind.

The worldwide success of "Black Panther" has challenged the myth that films with predominantly black casts don't sell ― and it helps unravel "unwritten Hollywood rules", Jeff Bock, a senior analyst at entertainment research firm Exhibitor Relations, told The New York Times.

Talking about Black Panther, Feige also said that Marvel Studios has "a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one".

Why has Trump chose to meet Kim Jong Un?
Just earlier this week Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. was nowhere near entering into negotiations with Pyongyang. US policy has long resisted offering any validation to the rogue regime - validation it could then leverage geopolitically.

Internationally, "Black Panther" is aiming for the $500 million mark this weekend, thanks to a strong debut in China, where it opened with $20 million in its first day.

Black Panther was the number one film in the US for the second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $108 million at the box office. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. In the film, Brown plays N'Jobu, the brother of T'Chaka, the father of Erik Killmonger and the uncle of T'Challa. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. "The more audiences want to see these stories, the more opportunities we have to explore different places and time". The only confirmed/announced project right now that doesn't already have an official date is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which means one of those 2020 dates will likely go to that.
