Marvel Studios’ Black Panther has become an absolute sensation, breaking record after record at the box office. Today, it has taken a new throne.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Black Panther has today surpassed The Avengers ($623.4 million) as the highest grossing superhero film of all time in North America. It is also one of just seven films to ever pass $600 million domestically. T’Challa’s movie was always expected to be a hit, but moreso than Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Who could have predicted that?
To date, Black Panther is at $1.2 billion worldwide, and it will pass Iron Man 3 this weekend. After that, it’ll be the third highest grossing superhero movie worldwide, behind just the two Avengers films. This weekend, the film will take the #2 spot after a whopping five weeks at #1. Pacific Rim: Uprising will take over.
Stay tuned for more updates as we have them.
