Even as someone who's heavily followed the MCU, it was a little hard to keep up with the multiple storylines at times and remember what happened to who: after all, sans for Peter Parker (Spiderman) and T'Challa (Black Panther), almost all these characters have been involved in more than one film, whether highlighting their own or appearing in others.
According to Variety, Infinity War has now grossed $1.686 billion globally after just 20 days, with $562.9 million of that coming from North America. T'Challa, like many heroes and half of the universe, turned to dust at the end of the movie. Avengers: Infinity War is now behind Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "I've said it before and I'll say it again".
In an interview with Screen Rant for Black Panther's Blu-ray and DVD release, producer Nate Moore discussed whether or not Boseman will be the only actor to play the protector of Wakanda. There's even a Dora Milaje spin-off that Ryan Coogler has expressed interest in.
Prior to the film's Chinese release, it was uncertain whether "Infinity War" would have the legs to reach $2 billion, especially considering that its box office performance will start tailing off significantly as "Deadpool 2" arrives in theaters this weekend followed by "Solo: A Star Wars Story" the weekend after.
"There are great ideas out there that we've talked about internally that I think and I hope will be surprising and refreshing to audiences while we still continue to explore characters we've come to love".
Natalie Portman set to make an appearance in Avengers 4?
When you combine Thor's recently expanded role, rejuvenated portrayal, fans wanting more, and the fact that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has said he'd be happy to come back to the MCU specifically for more Thor movies...it looks like we're going to see the God of Thunder do his thing for a whole lot longer. That being said, Black Panther was created and crafted with those events in mind. We are hot for Chris Hemsworth, horny for Chris Patt, want children with Chadwick Boseman, an all-night sex orgy with either Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper or Idris Elba or preferably altogether and as for that lovely young ass of Tom Holland... "So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think".
