Marvel’s Black Panther has been exceeding expectations since its Feb. 16th release and now another milestone has been reached. The film has become the top-grossing superhero film of all-time in North America, earning $624 million.

Black Panther is one of the seven films that has grossed $600 million or more domestically. Ryan Coogler’s superhero flick has also grossed $1.2 billion globally and is the fifth Marvel film to earn over $1 billion in theaters. It’s also the third-biggest comic book-based film  with The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron holding down the top two spots.

It’s been over a month since it hit the theaters, but it hasn’t fallen far from the top spot at the box office. Black Panther was the first film to be no. 1 at the box office for five weekends straight since Avatar, and now sits in the no. 2 spot behind new release A Wrinkle In Time.
