One of the biggest hits of 2022 was “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, which was released in cinemas at the beginning of November and pulled in over 800 million dollars at the box office.
In Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli.
After some confusion online over the New Year’s Weekend, over when the film was going to be released on Disney+, the film’s holding page in the United States has been updated from “Coming Soon” to Wednesday, 1st February 2023. While a international release date hasn’t yet been announced, it’s likely to be the same global release date similar to previous Marvel Studios release dates.
With “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” set to arrive on Disney+ on February 1st 2023, it means the film took 82 days from a theatrical release to Disney+. This is the longest amount of time between a theatrical release and Disney+ release for any film in Phase 4. The quickest was “Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” at just 45 days, and the previous longest, “Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings”, which took 70 days to arrive on Disney+.
In the meantime, you can check out the first “Black Panther” film now on Disney+.
