Wakanda Forever Humiliates Chris Hemsworth's Thor 4 Numbers Yet Could Not Beat Chadwick Boseman's Original Black Panther's $476.8 Million Profit Mark

Marvel hasn’t been the same ever since Avengers: Endgame. Since the beginning of Phase 4, it introduced the audience to different Disney+ series and brought in some new characters as well. For some fans, Phase 4 was a little disappointing in terms of films. As they feel Marvel doesn’t make movies like they used to in the past phases. But a movie from Phase 4 proved to be a good one in eyes of fans.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever wrapped up Phase 4 of the MCU. Even though, the film remains incomplete without the beloved Late Chadwick Boseman. Fans still felt it did a great job in paying homage to Boseman’s character T’Challa. The film has also received a total of five Oscar nominations.

Apart from Black Panther 2, Thor: Love and Thunder were also one of the most anticipated movies of the franchise. Chris Hemsworth’s character was the only lucky Avenger to get a fourth sequel. After the release of the film, many people found it to be entertaining and enjoyable. But for the critics, it wasn’t that groundbreaking of a film. Thor 4 earned a total amount of $760M+ at the worldwide box office. The record is quite less than Thor: Ragnarok which scored $850M+ at the box office. The film made a total profit of $103M, according to Deadline.

Black Panther’s character was first introduced in the film named Captain America: Civil War. Marvel onboarded Chadwick Boseman to portray the role of this iconic Marvel comic character. Fans have immensely loved how the late actor nailed the performance as Black Panther in every Marvel film. It took no time for his character to become a fan favorite. The news of the 43-year-old actor’s death devastated fans, family, and the industry, as they lost a gem of a person.
