Reality continues to directly conflict with everything that Chuck Wendig believes.
Chuck recently proclaimed:
wow jeez it’s almost like it’s a really good and popular movie that isn’t as divisive as some ass-hatted people want you to believe it is wow whoa huh https://t.co/sUqKqqSJqZ

Given how well known it is that drones in the Collective like Chuck are incapable of thinking more than 2 nano-seconds into the future, it’s unsurprising that they were unable to foresee the following developments. Comicbook.com reports:
As revealed by The-Numbers, Black Panther has sold more than 3,912,932 units and exceeded more than $82.2 million in sales since its May 15 release. That puts Black Panther ahead of The Last Jedi, released two months earlier on March 27, which has earned $84.9 million with 3,896,015 units sold.
Black Panther has also moved the most DVDs in the U.S. at 1,258,917 units and $22.2 million earned, ahead of Coco (1,184,204 units and $18.9m), Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (1,089,979 units and $19.1m), Greatest Showman (970,312 units and $14.2m), and Wonder(903,060 units and $12.7m). The Last Jedi ranks sixth at 871,170 units and $15.4m.
6th. Ouch. Apparently Black Panther fans aren’t streaming.
It will be amusing to watch Chuck metaphorically beat his vacant noggin against the brick wall of reality on Twitter, should The Greatest Showman musical eventually surpass The Last Jedi.
