‘Black Panther’ Becomes Top Grossing Superhero Film Of All Time
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.
