Illinois’ Hollywood Palms Cinemas has come forward to clear its stand to Black Panther fans who trolled the theater for calling Wakanda a country.
The issue began when the cinema theatre used the tagline “Welcome to Wakanda” to promote Black Panther. A couple of fans, who got offended by the tagline for whatever reason, took to social media to troll the theatre by claiming that the fictional Marvel Comics country, Wakanda, isn’t real as the theatre mentioned in its promotional tagline. Interestingly, the cinema trolled back with a post of their own.
“Hollywood Palms apologizes for the error. We did not wish to give the false impression that Wakanda, a country with bulletproof suits that fit in small containers, flying cars, and gender equality was a real place,” the cinema’s mock apology on Twitter read.
The rest of the message also took a dig on any online troll looking to poke fun at Sokovia, Kamar-Taj and Asgard.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to any Sokovian refugees, citizens of Kamar- Taj, or visitors from far-off Asgard who may have been offended,” the apology note read.
According to reports, Disney and Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is estimated to have garnered a record-shattering $192 million during the three-day weekend and a projected a four-day total of $218 million-plus box office collections. The film’s staggering debut puts it behind only Marvel’s The Avengers (2012), besting Avengers: Age of Ultron, Deadpool and Iron Man 3. According to comScore, the film’s global ticket sales is expected to reach an estimated total of $387 million by Monday.
The latest Marvel film is holding steady with a 97 percent score on review aggregator website, Rotten Tomatoes.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa /Black Panther, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Michael B. Jordan as N’Jadaka /Erik “Killmonger” Stevens, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross.
