'Black Panther' Is the Top Grossing Superhero Movie Ever

Within the opening days, Black Panther went on to become the number 1 all-time weekend opener, best of 2018 so far, Best of February releases, Best Marvel and Disney movie, Best superhero movie among others.

Worldwide, "Black Panther" has earned over $1.2 billion, and by the end of Sunday, it will have surpassed "Iron Man 3" - which grossed $1.214 billion - to become the third-biggest comic book adaptation of all time, following closely behind "The Avengers", which earned $1.5 billion, and "Avengers: Age of Ultron", which earned $1.4 billion.

Black Panther is one of the seven films that has grossed $600 million or more domestically.

Only seven movies have ever made $600 million in the United States, and the Wakanda-set movie is now in sixth place.

That's a feat only ever matched by Avatar, the highest-grossing movie of all time.

Early projections for Black Panther's box office premiere had the movie at a solid $120 million, but the movie came out and destroyed those predictions by earning over $200 million, shocking the industry.

House Bill 1510 does make exceptions when there are risks to the life or physical health of the mother, or fatal fetal anomalies. Phil Bryant signed the country's most restrictive abortion law, a court has put the state's new 15-week abortion ban on hold.

DJ Khaled's "All I Do Is Win" might as well be the theme music for Black Panther's box office journey.

The film became a cultural phenomenon.

The latest Marvel solo movie just keeps racking up those box office records. The discussions began while the movie was still in production when everybody involved discovered how electric it was on set.

To achieve the milestone, Black Panther clawed its way past fellow Marvel Studios blockbuster The Avengers, which pulled in $623.4 million in the USA when it was released in 2012. There's a lot to live up after the smash success.

Black Panther did it. Box office lists don't account for inflation, though the six-year gap separating Marvel's top two box office hits makes that much less of a factor here.
