The early screening reviews raved about the sequel being a great tribute to Boseman as well as boasting another epic Marvel blockbuster. Both fans and critics alike praised the cinematography and stunning visual effects. Moreover, they also commended the outstanding performance of the cast, with Angela Bassett being campaigned by fans for an Oscar nomination.

With so much hype and commendation, it is not impossible that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will manage to beat two of Marvel’s most successful movies: Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home. It might even break its own record with the first film’s Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

As the first superhero franchise to feature an all-Black cast, Wakanda Forever also showcased the rich indigenous cultures of the Yucatan and the strikingly gorgeous underwater place called Talokan. Tenoch Huerta’s Namor is a complex and compelling villain, with a solid origin story that sets up a more expansive world for the future of X-Men mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With a victorious box office opening this weekend, it will surely climb up the chart for the next few weeks or more. Some fans have already projected the film will hit $1 Billion at the end of its run, ranking amongst the top-grossing MCU films of all time.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now showing in theaters worldwide.
