In November 2022, 82 days after it opens in theatres, the Marvel movie is made available for streaming.
According to Marvel Studios, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will debut on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar on February 1st. The most recent instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be released 82 days after its theatrical debut on November 11 in India, the US, and other countries. It will be quickly followed by Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which will debut on February 17 worldwide. The 64-day window that Disney established for Thor: Love and Thunder, their most recent motion picture, is exceeded by 18 days with this period. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be viewable on Disney+ Hotstar in India in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
A teaser released by Marvel for the event suggests that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will also be shown in extended IMAX on Disney+. When the IMAX Enhanced film was first released in November 2021, several sequences’ aspect ratio was increased to 1.90:1, which is about the same as TVs’ 16:9 format. This is a 26% increase in the image for large-scale scenes, similar to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which frequently switched between black bars on top and bottom to create the illusion of “full-screen.” The film, which was directed by Ryan Coogler, is the latest of the 16 MCU movies to receive this treatment. It is important to remember, meanwhile, that Disney+ Hotstar has never advertised or offered IMAX Enhanced.
The OTT release date for Black Panther 2 was actually made public earlier this week when astute eyes noticed its official presence on the Disney+ website. Disney only recently recognised the date and promoted it on social media. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, is set in the days following King T’Challa’s passing. This plot point was included as part of a rewrite following actor Chadwick Boseman’s passing in mid-2020 after a long fight with cancer. In this new chapter, Namor (Tenoch Huerta), the king of the underwater Talokan realm, exploits Wakanda’s vulnerability to lead his army onto land as the kingdom of Wakanda struggles to deal with that grief.
At the box office, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever raked in an amazing $822.6 million (about Rs. 6,810 crore), placing it among the top 10 highest-grossing movies of the year. It is currently in sixth place, trailing only Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, which only recently overtook James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
Released on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar on February 1 in all locations, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The Marvel movie will be available in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, and English in India.
