Let’s Marvel at Black Panther’s Success
Marvel’s upcoming superhero movie, Black Panther, is selling tickets like hot cakes right now, as it’s already estimated to make $120 million in the box office just a few weeks before it’s release in theaters. The movie stars Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, along with Lupita N’yongo, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya and Forest Whitaker, among others. With a star-studded cast such as this, it’s no wonder the movie is slated to do so well.
Ideas for a Black Panther film have been in the works as far back as 1992. Wesley Snipes initially planned on creating and starring in a film centering around the superhero, but his iteration never came to fruition. It wasn’t until 2016 that any major production began on the film, and principal photography began January 21, 2017.
The movie is set to be released February 16th.
