Monday (14) started very well for Marvel, which pocketed more than US$ 180 million in the opening of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last weekend, making it the highest-grossing debut for a month in November in the US. The previous record was The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (US$ 158 million).
According to deadlinethe feature film directed by Ryan Coogler is the third highest grossing since the pandemic spread around the world, behind only other films of the house, such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (US$ 187 million) and Spider-Man: No Return Home (US$ 260 million).
Didn’t have for Black Adam
Competing with the Marvel movie, given the circumstances, black adam lagged behind in the box office fight. The feature starring Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) has a total revenue of more than US$ 350 million, counting on worldwide ticket sales. Already Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, with global grosses, it made a staggering $330 million in its opening weekend alone, and its running days are just beginning.
Did Black Adam ever give what he had to give at the box office?
Looking at the glass half full inside the house, black adam surpasses the box office of Shazam! ($366 million), although the villain’s movie can hardly surpass the $657.9 million generated by Justice League in 2017, DC’s highest grossing to date.
It is good to remember that just as it happened with black adam🇧🇷 Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was also banned from China, a factor that weighed considerably on the profits of both productions, not to mention the removal of part of the public because of the pandemic.
