The Ryan Coogler-directed superhero movie, Black Panther, is shattering all records left and right. The Marvel Studios’ movie has already out-grossed some of the major superhero films at the domestic box office including DC’s Justice League.
In fact, Black Panther‘s opening four-day weekend gross, expected to be a whopping $235 million, is more than Justice League’s entire domestic box office collections over its entire run, which stands at $228.6 million. The black superhero movie is on its way to becoming the second-most successful Marvel film ever, just behind The Avengers.
Director Rick Famuyiwa is the latest addition to the list of celebrities who have been actively posting about the staggering success of Black Panther on social media. Back in 2016, Famuyiwa replaced Seth Grahame-Smith to become the director of the film, The Flash, which is supposed to be a follow-up film to the DC Extended Universe’s Justice League. But he parted ways with Warner Bros. after just a couple of months due to creative differences.
Now, after almost two years of parting ways from the film studio, Famuyiwa has openly mocked Warner Bros by comparing the Marvel flick’s performance as against Justice League. His latest Instagram post takes a dig at the DC film’s underwhelming box office performance. You can check out the post below.
After this incident, it is highly likely that Famuyiwa won’t get a chance to direct any project backed by the company, at least not in the near future. Talking about the future of The Flash, now called Flashpoint, the film has found directors in Spider-Man: Homecoming writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. The film is expected to hit screens in 2020.
Black Panther, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett in lead roles, is now playing in theaters.
