"Black Panther" becomes the highest grossing Marvel movie in its opening week

With a grossing of $292 million in North America, Black Panther (2018) has become the most successful Marvel Cinematographic Universe in its opening weekend, even overtaking the figures The Avengers (2012) grossed in its first week in 2012. The Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures co-production is achieving a good amount of positive critics, which makes to anticipate that the economic profit of the movie can do nothing but to increase. Also, many voices are rumoring a sequel to be soon in production, although Marvel Studios hasn’t green-lit it yet, which seems to be just a matter of time.

Ryan Coogler, notorious for being in charge of another big hit film like was Creed (2015), was the chosen one to direct and co-write together with Joe Robert Cole Black Panther (2018). As many will know, it is based on the character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first appearing in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966) in the Silver Age of Comic Books. The movie is filled with stars such as Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

After the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. 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.

The last weekend of April, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) is hitting theatres, so the thirsty audiences of more Black Panther adventures will be satisfied. Marvel’s money-making machinery doesn’t take a break. And if you haven’t seen Black Panther (2018), check out the spectacular official trailer and see if you get convinced yet:
