Disney/Marvel’s ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ topped the list followed by Sony/Marvel’s animated feature ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One)’.

This comes even after the film ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is on a production hiatus as star Letitia Wright recovers from a previous on-set injury. Shooting is expected to resume in January. It had been earlier scheduled for a release on November 11 but there has been no announcement on the new release date ever since that was postponed. 

Also to note is that people have thronged theatres to watch MCU’s 'Spider Man: No Way Home' which has become the first movie to clear $1 billion during Covid time.
