Looks like Marvel is continuing its reign. Black Panther has surpassed The Dark Knight Rises at the box office, meaning Marvel now has the top-five highest grossing superhero movies at the box office, ComicBook.com reports.
As the entertainment source reports, Black Panther also joins The Avengers, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War as the fifth Marvel Studios film to make over $1 billion dollars. Not to mention, ComicBook.com says Black Panther is also the nineteenth highest grossing movie of all time.
Impressive? We think so.
Black Panther topped off its record-breaking opening weekend with a $201.8 million debut, which, according to CNN, was the fifth biggest box office opening debut of all-time.
It comes as no surprise that Black Panther has drawn crowds of people to see it. Slated to be one of the biggest and most anticipated movies of 2018, the movie has been considered a trailblazer by many. With the character of King T'Challa being Marvel's first black superhero and the film having a majority black cast, fans have been excited about the movie because it's something that we haven't gotten a chance to see in the Marvel Universe.
Massive congrats to the Black Panther and Marvel teams!
