Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman, has publicly congratulated Black Panther on its success.
It wasn’t so long ago that directors were reaching out to Jenkins and congratulating her on the success of Wonder Woman – a film that performed far better than expected. Now it’s Jenkins turn to say congrats as she has acknowledged what Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther has achieved during its massive opening weekend.
“Huge congrats #BlackPanther on the staggering weekend. So happy for your incredibly meaningful success. Wonder Woman posse can’t wait for break in schedule to see it! You’re changing the world. What a wonderful thing! Congrats to you all @theblackpanther #RyanCoogler”.

Black Panther has certainly been impressive in its opening weekend at the US box office, pulling in huge numbers on its way to $235 million over the four day holiday weekend.
One wouldn’t be surprised to see more tweets of congratulations aimed at the movie as the film continues its march.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
Black Panther sees Ryan Coogler (Creed) directing Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa alongside Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, John Kani as King T’Chaka and Nabiyah Be as Linda.
