Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has crossed the $400 million mark at the domestic box office.

With no serious competition in its fifth weekend in theaters, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever remained at the number one spot of the domestic box office. The Marvel feature also sailed past $400 million in earnings from North American theaters, becoming the third feature to do so this year after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Top Gun: Maverick.

Wakanda Forever was directed by Ryan Coogler from a screenplay he co-wrote alongside Joe Robert Cole. The film stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.

Two years after the release of Black Panther and T’Challa’s return in Avengers: Infinity War and its follow-up Endgame, Chadwick Boseman, the actor behind the fan-favorite character, passed away at the age of 43, following a four-year battle with colon cancer. Marvel made the decision not to recast T’Challa, with his sister Shuri taking on the Black Panther mantle.

What did HH think of the Black Panther sequel?

In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the movie Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s real-life passing and the story now following the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. While the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”

“When it comes to performances, everyone here is at the top of their game, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett serving as focal points, the two are the strongest of the bunch, with incredibly personal moments that are some of the most heartfelt we’ve ever seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film, in particular, also works for those who might have reservations.”
