With a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s no wonder people are still flocking to see the latest Marvel feature. Black Panther has crossed over into the billion dollar mark worldwide, in only 26 days, making it the fifth Marvel movie to do so, placing it alongside The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War.
Internationally it had a strong debut in China, where it opened with $20 million in its first day. All time, Black Panther could overtake a few more competitors including The Dark Knight, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Time will only tell how far it goes, but with the announcement of Black Panther 2 already in the works, and possible spin-offs, it’s safe to say it will have continued success for years to come. And with Avengers: Infinity War just around the corner, Marvel shows once again how it’s done.
