Black Panther is the all-time highest-grossing superhero film

26 March 2018

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film accomplished the feat on Saturday after landing somewhere north of The Avengers previous record-holding figure of $624.3 million at the domestic box office. Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.

Nevertheless, Black Panther is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically (it now ranks No. 6 on the list). It will finish out this weekend with approximately $630 million to The Avengers $623 million.

When going down that road, "Black Panther" still has a little more work to do. Such a take-home will crush Black Panther, set to gross between $17 million and $18 million in the U.S.

Nice company to be in, and with the movie still having a month (maybe two) in theaters, who knows where it will end up on this list of titans. Globally, the film now has a total of $1.23 billion putting it at No. 12 on the all-time charts and ahead of the $1.21 billion made five years ago by "Iron Man 3".

He will also feature in next month's crossover release Avengers: Infinity War, as well as its now untitled sequel, which will be out next year.

Meanwhile, "Black Panther", starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan, among others, has earned more than $1.2 billion worldwide since its February 16 release.
