‘It took 10 days for Avatar 2 to outgross The Batman, Thor 4, Black Panther 2’: Internet Bows Down To James Cameron as The Way of Water Crosses $800M

'It took 10 days for Avatar 2 to outgross The Batman, Thor 4, Black Panther 2': Internet Bows Down To James Cameron as The Way of Water Crosses $800M

Avatar: The Way of Water became James Cameron’s masterpiece the moment it was released. It sees the Na’vi, focusing on Jake Sully, Neytiri, and their children. The budget of the movie was off the charts and the question of whether or not it would be able to surpass its predecessor’s success loomed in the air for a long. That could still take some time but not as much as fans would have initially thought.

The sequel may have gotten mixed reviews from both critics and audiences, but it is still holding strong at the box office. This coinciding with the cultural impact of the franchise has made it possible for the movie to break many massive movies’ earnings in an instant.

Avatar: The Way Of Water Surpasses Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Avatar: The Way of Water has officially surpassed $800 Million globally already, putting it on top of the domestic and international box office instantly. This easily pushes it ahead of The Batman, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Thor: Love and Thunder. While the first movie is the highest-grossing movie of all time, the sequel, for now, is the first movie in a decade, excluding 2020, to dominate the box office without it being a Marvel or a superhero movie.

The cultural impact that it has can be debated on by the audience as to whether it exists or not, stating that even though the first movie did so well and the second one is on its way to reaching that level, finding merchandise for the same would be difficult as compared to Marvel clothing and more. Similarly, one would see fans making a movie and series references all the time. These would include movies beyond the superhero mark, such as American Psycho, Mean Girls, and Jaws. Even with this debate of an impact, the movie still managed to rise higher than all of them.
