'Black Panther' Passes The $1 Billion Mark At The Box Office

'Black Panther' Passes The $1 Billion Mark At The Box Office

With Black Panther already pulling in over $930.7 million at the box office so far, it was a foregone conclusion that there will be a sequel for the superhero king of Wakanda sometime in Marvel's future. "In terms of 'Black Panther, ' no studio can say again, 'Oh, black movies don't travel, overseas interest will be minimal'". It's a remarkable triumph for Marvel Studios, not least because the movie was unusually diverse - both in terms of cast and crew.

Before "Black Panther" smashed box office records, Holland had written a nonfiction book titled "The Invisibles: The Untold Story about Slaves in the White House". Marvel fans are patiently waiting to see if Shuri and Stark have a meeting in Infinity War, which pretty much seems like a logical conclusion, since the finale of Infinity War will take place in Wakanda. The cinematography, as you would expect from a Marvel movie, was top-notch. Black Panther is a pioneer in the entertainment industry because of the intellectual, powerful and complex way it represents black people and black issues in a big budget blockbuster film. Or a Shuri stand-alone film?

"I think there's lots of potential".

And that "more" isn't limited just to Black Panther himself either.

"Yes. I think we're seeing it shift from a very purposeful initiative to just a fact of life, to just a way of doing business".

With that said, one thing Marvel will continue to uphold is diversity.

Even though Black Panther was always planned to have his own franchise, in some ways, it's actually the first spin-off movie that Marvel Studios has ever done. We'll just have to watch the first one again in the meantime. Then there are people we hired that we're not ready to announce in all different capacities, particularly behind the camera.
