Black Panther has become the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time in North America.
The film has been on a whirlwind of accomplishment since the release on February 16th. Breaking records worldwide by a longshot and becoming the most tweeted about film ever. Once again dispelling the rumor that movies that feature majority people of color don’t do well overseas.
According to The Hollywood Reporter: “The Disney and Marvel release achieved the milestone on Saturday after passing fellow Marvel title The Avengers, which grossed $623.4 million in 2012. To boot, Black Panther is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically, finishing Sunday with $630.9 million to put it at No. 5 on the all-time list.”
The worldwide success has been one for the books. Reaching $1.237 billion in ticket sales Black Panther is now in the 3rd spot for top-grossing superhero movies of all time in the worldwide box office. The Marvel blockbuster has already been greenlit for a part two.
