Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the seventh movie released in 2022 to earn more than $300 million domestically.  

The movie is the last theatrical release from Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four and made its debut on November 11 in theatres. 

Despite Thor: Love and Thunder, this summer’s MCU entry, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, this May’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s domestic total increased significantly by $9.6 million on Tuesday, just before the Thanksgiving holiday, according to Deadline. 

Its domestic gross now stands at $303.7 million, making it just the fifth movie in 2022 to achieve so.  

It was initially predicted that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s opening weekend would easily surpass that of Doctor Strange.

However, it only debuted slightly lower by $6 million, and a smaller week 2 decline allowed it to significantly close the gap between the two movies by this Sunday.

The Disney animated feature Strange World, which is underwhelming, was supposed to be this weekend’s main holiday competitor.  

With that not much of a threat anymore, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to continue making money through the lucrative Thanksgiving holiday.
