Bringing in an estimated $624 million, Black Panther beat out the 2012 record established by The Avengers, who brought in $623 million. "Black Panther" has grossed $521 million domestically, making it the ninth-highest release of all time. Not adjusted for inflation, Black Panther is now the fifth highest-grossing movie in United States history, only behind Star Wars:The Force Awakens ($936.6 million), Avatar ($760.5 million), Titanic ($659.3 million), and Jurassic World ($652.2 million).
Plus, the current popularity of "Black Panther" has further stoked excitement for the third "Avengers" team-up, which should especially challenge the main franchise's predecessors at the global box office.
Black Panther is on track to surpass The Avengers at the domestic box office this weekend to become the top-grossing superhero movie of all time in North America. For now, it appears Titanic and Jurassic World are within Black Panther's reach, but it will unlikely surpass Avatar and The Force Awakens for the top two spots. The enthusiasm around the film has inspired everything from schools teaching a broader range of black history subjects, Black Panther-themed watch parties, and voter-registration drives.
The consensus of Tomatometer reads, "Black Panther elevates superhero cinema to thrilling new heights while telling one of the MCU's most absorbing stories - and introducing some of its most fully realized characters". Globally, the film now has a total of $1.23 billion, putting it at No. 12 on the all-time charts and ahead of the $1.21 billion made five years ago by "Iron Man 3".
Meanwhile, "Black Panther", starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan, among others, has earned more than $1.2 billion worldwide since its February 16 release. Several of the cast members are set to return in Avengers: Infinity War which hits theaters on April 27.
