One of the highest anticipated movies for this year was MCU's last movie of Phase 4, 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'. The audience has patiently waited for the creators to come up with the sequel for a really long time unfortunately amidst covid and pre-production developments, Chadwick Boseman died. However, the rest of the cast confirmed that they'd return as their OG characters. Apart from the overall hype fans have been all praises about our 'Ironheart' actress too. A heart-touching moment that made all MCU fans cry when there was a tribute to the late leading actor in the movie. Safe to say, regardless of all the conjectural backfire, the film turned out to be a huge success.

The most ironic factor is that after topping the box office for three weekends in a row, DC’s 'Black Adam' slipped to the number two spot. 'Wakanda Forever' has broken the record for the biggest November debut, overtaking 2013’s 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. Although it did succumb to the box office numbers of the prequel movie and Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness'.

Disney and Marvel’s superhero sequel 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' has splashed down with a stellar $180 million opening weekend. 'Doctor Strange 2' profited from being a direct follow-up to the record-smashing 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', which featured Benedict Cumberbatch’s superhero in a key supporting role, not to forget that compelling tease of a title. However, the prequel, 'Black Panther' completed its course with an incredible $700 million domestic haul - the sixth-biggest tally of all time. It then concluded with $1.3 billion globally, against a reported budget of $200 million. It's only a matter of time before everyone will find out if 'Wakanda Forever' will beat its predecessor. Creators are hopeful 'Wakanda Forever' dominates the box office until Disney’s own 'Avatar: The Way of the Water' arrives next month, and it’ll be interesting to see how well it corresponds to not just its own beloved predecessor, but also other Marvel movies.

However, fans have been heart eyes after watching the film. While some write about the unexpected features others mostly write about how emotional they got witnessing the tribute to the late actor. 

A fan wrote, "I thought they handled T’challa’s passing and Shuri’s conflicted hero arc with grace, but I was most impressed by #Namor and #Riri—easily two of the most compelling Phase 4 additions. Bassett, Huerta and Gurira’s performances stand out the most." A fan said, "I finish watching #BlackPantherWakandaForever and some parts of the movie almost made me cry, Of course this is the last movie for Phase 4 (but we still have GOTG holiday special) but yeah a Good movie," while another added, "The iron heart scenes made me miss tony stark so friggin bad."

A fan shared, "Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever was PHENOMENAL. Can’t wait to see it again!  The most emotionally gut-wrenching MCU story from start to finish. Riveting." Another tweeted, "Is it safe to talk about #BlackPanther2 yet? 1. Bring tissues because Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole put on a master class in plot twists. 2. Give @ImAngelaBassett her MF flowers T.O.D.A.Y. 3. Thank you @DanaiGurira @letitiaawright @Lupita_Nyongo 4. Hello @TenochHuerta."
