Marvel movies and TV dramas became the mainstream works of streaming media platforms in 2021, “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” became a popular drama in the spring period, and the data of “Loki” rose rapidly.
Although “Eternals” and “Shang Qi” have not yet premiered, these two works have already gained a lot of popularity.
Since the closure of Hollywood theaters, many large film companies have cancelled the theater parts of their films, and Disney is no exception.
The theater portion of “Doctor Strange 2” has been cancelled, and the film will premiere on the Disney Channel.
It seems that Disney’s transformation in the streaming media era has been quite successful.

In order to cater to the peculiarities of the emerging broadcast platform of Internet TV, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” was originally planned to be made into a two-and-a-half-hour film, which later became a drama series.
Because the TV series model is more suitable for streaming media platforms, Hollywood film critics revealed that “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” may be made into a 10-episode series.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will become a series?
Faced with this topic, Martin Freeman, the lead actor of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, said: “Coogler’s shooting methods are more economical, regardless of whether he wants to make the “Black Panther” sequel into a movie or an 8- or 10-episode limited series. , In a special period, he will create under the premise of saving costs.”
Martin Freeman gave an open answer.
Since the main purpose of this work is to save costs, fans with a little bit of common sense know that dramas are much cheaper than large-screen works.
If “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is to be made into a big movie, regardless of whether the work has a chance to be shown in theaters, the director team will need to spend a lot of money on special effects. Obviously, the film mode is very expensive.
If “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” becomes a drama, even if Coogler stretches the front line, it can save a lot of money in special effects.
Many people think that the cost of superhero series is high, and a few shots cost millions, because these impactful scenes require money to make.
The big screen has very high requirements for the details of special effects scenes, and sometimes multi-million dollar scenes still seem to have flaws.
Once this cosmic movie enters the money-saving mode, the visual effect of the work will not meet the standard.
But it doesn’t work on “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, because the sequel to “Black Panther” is unique.
After Bosman’s death, Coogler needs to let the character of Tracha leave the parallel universe world in a brilliant way.
The lead actor is no longer in the world, and Marvel did not find another person to replace it. In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, Traza is a character synthesized with virtual technology.
This detail shows the fact that whether “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is made into a movie or a series, this work is still very expensive.
The MCU working group used special effects to bring Bosman back. The operating costs of these technologies are relatively high.
Since Martin Freeman said that Coogler’s filming methods are more cost-effective, it may be more expensive to turn “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” into a 10-episode series, so it might as well be made into a movie according to the original plan.
Besides, this work will be released in the summer of 2022, when Hollywood theaters may be in the early stages of large-scale opening.
Many viewers miss Bosman, who may be able to bring this sequel to the peak of the box office.
In the course of filming at Disney, is there a model that saves money on films than TV shows? “Avengers 3: Infinity War” is an example.
When “Reunion 3” was set as a limited drama, people familiar with the matter said that the budget for this series was as high as $1 billion.
Although this is Marvel’s first-stage propaganda method for the movie, if the total cost of this drama is not high, people in the know will not say the figure of 1 billion US dollars.
Later, the staff of the Atlanta Pinewood Studios clarified that the MCU’s total budget for several films at this stage is $1 billion.
If it is made into a drama series, “Avengers 3” will cost hundreds of millions of dollars. The same is true for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.
Considering that the lead actor of the Black Panther series has passed away, from the words of Kevin Fitch and other members of the Marvel team, fans can know that there will be no sequel to “Black Panther”, and it is impossible for “Captain America” to appear like this The trilogy.
In other words, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is the finale of the series, and Coogler’s shooting methods are more cost-effective, and there must be a limit.
How about the cost savings of Coogler’s shooting methods?
Martin Freeman cited an example: “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has entered the Disney Channel release process.
However, there are only two protagonists announced by the Marvel team now, and the other is Danai Gurira.
It’s not because the MCU working group is selling off, but in a special period it is determined that there are not many actors who will appear in this work.
Another Coogler directed work “Space Jam: A New Legacy” also has a similar process.
So, “Black Panther 2” will also become a series?
Martin Freeman said that the director’s shooting method is more economical, which indicates that the sequel of “Black Panther” is still a movie.
