Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER L to R: Ayo (Florence Kasumba) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) Ph: Film Frame Marvel Studios 2018

Black Panther has officially hit $1 billion worldwide after just four weeks in theaters.

According to a release from Disney, Black Panther is the third-biggest superhero movie domestically, behind The Dark Knight ($534.9 million, and Panther is already at $530.9 as of March 10) and The Avengers ($623.4 million).

With those numbers, Black Panther will easily outstrip The Dark Knight, most likely by the end of Saturday, and it’s pacing ahead of The Avengers Panther has roughly the same domestic gross going into its fourth weekend that Avengers did after its fourth weekend. Panther also has the advantage of opening in February (Avengers and The Dark Knight were spring/summer releases) and enjoying months in theaters with little major competition.

Beyond that, here are a few more badges that Panther wears:

  • #1 February debut ($202M 3-day, $242.1M 4-day), and February release of all time

  • #5 all-time 3-day debut ($202M)

  • #1 Monday of all time ($40.1M)

  • #2 Sunday of all time ($60M)

  • #2 second weekend ($111.6M, one of only 4 films to surpass $100M mark in second weekend)

  • #1 non-holiday third weekend ($66.3M)

Black Panther is now in theaters. Based on these numbers, you probably knew that already.

Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League

Here, Jason Momoa is dry. Scroll down for the wet.

While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?

Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!

Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.

But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.

In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:

“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”

A real physical specimen indeed.

A new tweet confirms that Chris Pine is back for ‘Wonder Woman 2’

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins announced Wednesday morning the game-changing return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor for the film’s 2019 sequel.

If you saw Wonder Woman in 2017, you may recall one key detail about Steve Trevor: HE DIED. Or so we thought?? In a devastating sequence during the final battle, Steve bid Diana goodbye, gave her his family heirloom, and flew straight to his death.

OR SO WE THOUGHT.

Gal Gadot also shared an early still from the movie which shows Diana contemplating a series of cryptic television screens.

We learned early in June that the Wonder Woman sequel will likely be set in 1984, and Jenkins’ tweet suggests Wonder Woman 1984 may even be….”

We may have a clue about when ‘Wonder Woman 2’ takes place

Diana puts her game face on in Wonder Woman.

DC’s Geoff Johns may have dropped a serious hint about the Wonder Woman sequel – namely, the year it takes place.

Johns, DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer, shared a teaser on Facebook Friday morning that simply read “WW84,” which might point to seeing our hero in 1984.

Johns uploaded the image as his cover photo, where it slid largely under the radar until The Hollywood Reporter sniffed it out. Presumably, the teaser means Wonder Woman 2 will jump ahead to 1984.

We knew the sequel would move forward in time, leaving 1917 (and Steve Trevor) in the dust, but having an exact year narrows this down immensely. By 1984, Diana could run into a young Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent – or almost anyone else in the DCEU, hero or villain. She could also wear a lot of pastels.

Wonder Woman 2 will release Nov. 1, 2019.
