How ‘Black Panther 2’ Box Office Projections Compare to Phase Four
With the numbers rolling in, we look at how the Black Panther 2 box office projects compare to the performance of other Phase Four projects.
With the reveal of the MCU’s Phase Four slate, one film caught our eye. That was none other than the follow-up to the tremendous Black Panther.
With the revolutionary nature of the original, it was always an exciting sequel proposition. Although, it became all the more with the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman.
Concurrently Marvel decided not to recast the character of T’Challa. A decision that certainly impacted the creative team behind the sequel.
This unfortunate reality created an entirely different film and an entirely different set of expectations from fans. It hasn’t, however, hurt the excitement for the series as we now have an idea of what the film is likely to do at the box office.
With Black Panther 2 box office projections officially arriving, we compare its potential performance with past Phase Four films and see how they all stack up.
According to The Direct, Black Panther: WAkanda Forever is projected to earn anywhere between $180 million and $225 million. Many assume the number will end up being somewhere solidly in the middle.
When compared to the past two MCU releases, the film could be one of the year’s best.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness earned $187 during its opening weekend. A number that is right at the low end of the projection.
While Thor: Love and Thunder earned $144 million, which is way below the projected number for the Black Panther sequel.
Time will only tell, but it appears as though the upcoming film is already set to be one of the better-performing Marvel movies of the Phase four slate.
