  Yangcheng Evening News reporter Li Li

  The Marvel movie "Black Panther 2" was officially released in the mainland on February 7, and 10 days later, on February 17, another Marvel movie "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Frenzy" (referred to as "Ant-Man and the Wasp") "Female") arrives.

Having just bid farewell to the "Second Spring Festival box office box office in film history", can the Chinese film market usher in another wave of box office spring brought by imported blockbusters?

  In February this year, more than a dozen new films were released after the Lantern Festival, including "Black Panther 2" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp."

There are a lot of options for imported films, and the lineup of domestic films including "Chinese Ping Pong: Jedi Counterattack" and "Mad Tongue Lawyer" is also strong.

How to choose?

Let's take a look at the Yangcheng Evening News reporter's recommended film list.

  In 2018, "Black Panther" won both word-of-mouth and box office in North America.

However, the film's performance in China was mediocre, and the box office of 662 million yuan was not high in the record of Marvel movies.

Coupled with the fact that the current "Black Panther 2" has rearranged the lineup and plot due to the death of the previous actor Chadwick Boseman, can this final work of the fourth stage of Marvel succeed in China? The results are really hard to say.
