Black Panther Becomes Highest-Grossing Superhero Movie Ever, Also Passes Star Wars

Black Panther Becomes Highest-Grossing Superhero Movie Ever, Also Passes Star Wars

Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.

Black Panther has overtaken The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero film at the United States box office, taking a total of $630.9m (£443.5m) on its sixth weekend of release.

Black Panther can't seem to stop itself from accruing new records.

In January, Kendrick Lamar posted what is now the most-retweeted Black Panther tweet ever when he shared the track list to the film's soundtrack, which he curated and produced.

The box office sales reaching over $1 billion shows that there is power in Africans when a formation is created especially from around the world, perhaps it shows the financial power of Pan-Africans and what can be done with such discovery - create radical developments? This was the film's first weekend not at No. 1, as it yielded to "Pacific Rim Uprising", which debuted to $28 million domestically and added $123 million on foreign shores.

Marvel's latest has grossed $630.9 million in its sixth week of release, topping the $623 million The Avengers made in 2012, according to Box Office Mojo. Especially since the film will still be in theaters once Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27. There's no doubt Black Panther will pass both Age of Ultron and The Avengers.

The must-see movie has now passed movie franchise The Avengers to earn the top spot. Both films earned a whopping 97% fresh rating. And as if that weren't enough, T'Challa's Wednesday gross of $3M overseas lifted the Walt Disney Studios 2018 global box office past $1B.
