Black Panther: Highest-Grossing US Superhero Film – EVER.

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther is about to reach another milestone when it surpasses The Avengers‘ North American gross to become the highest-grossing superhero movie in the U.S.

To date, Panther has earned $618.6 million domestically ($1.2 billion worldwide), just short of The Avengers‘ $623.4 million. By the end of the weekend, Black Panther will surpass that number, according to estimates.

Black Panther has enjoyed five straight weeks atop the box office charts that kicked off with a record-breaking opening weekend for the month of February.  Word of mouth, critical praise and all-star performances from the likes of  Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, and Letitia Wright continued to boost the film’s presence in theaters.

Wakanda will also have a lasting impact on the storytelling of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – a sequel has already been confirmed.
