  • 'Black Panther' Stares Down a $165 Million Opening in the US

Marvel fans have waited a long time to have a gay romance in a superhero film, and many hoped Black Panther would finally be it. The last MCU film to pass $400 million domestically was 2016's Captain America: Civil War, earning $408 million.

Fashion inspired by the movie Black Panther is taking centre stage at New York Fashion Week.

But the fact that the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a genuine triumph on nearly every level makes the ground-breaking film all the more significant.

Director Ryan Coogler manages to weave socio-political lessons on love, culture, community, isolation, and identity in between some jaw-dropping visuals to create a superhero film that's deeper and more meaningful than anything that has come before it.

Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan looked so fashion-forward while stepping out during New York Fashion Week!

The saga that started with Iron Man has given us some really notable superheroes from the Marvel comics and every superhero who has so far contributed in saving the world has something unique to offer. The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira plays Okoye, the general in charge of Wakanda's defense and the head of the all-female Dora Milaje secret service, while Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o steals his heart as Nakia, a Wakandan "war dog" spy who's like James Bond and a Bond girl rolled into one.

Now, with just a few days until the movie hits theaters, Hollywood's leading tracking service, NRG, estimated that Black Panther will earn at least $165 million domestically in its opening weekend, per THR. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. Importantly though, ideas to introduce more Wakandan characters or exploring same-sex relationships are not ones that have been scuppered forever.

A crowdfunding page for a Toronto-area screening backed by the Black Business and Professionals Association said the campaign has raised upwards of $15,000, which is more than double its original goal.
