The global cultural phenomenon of Black Panther dominated the box office charts, emerging as the third biggest movie of all time domestically with over $665 million - the first film in eight years to spend five weeks at No. 1 - and rising to the global top 10 of all time with over $1.3 billion.
This was the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film led by a black superhero, the first featuring a predominantly black cast and the first with a black director. The plan is for Coogler to commence writing the script early next year, so they can start the production later in '19, early 2020 at the latest. While he wouldn't reveal any spoilers, Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige said that a sequel was "absolutely" going to happen in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Now that the beloved director is back on the job, it's hard to control our excitement. The director is now working on Michael B Jordan-starrer Wrong Answer, and is also the executive producer of LeBron James's sequel of Space Jam and Steven Caple Jr's Creed II.
In India, the film clashed with Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee's Aiyaary and completely outperformed it at the box office.
Whether or not Black Panther and/or Infinity War makes it to the actual nominations, we'll find out in early 2019, and then the actual 91st Academy Awards will take place on Sunday 24 February.
