Marvel's 'Black Panther' is Now the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie Ever

Marvel's 'Black Panther' is Now the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie Ever

But don't expect T'Challa to relinquish his throne for long. Bringing inflation into account, Black Panther will have to earn approximately $676 million to overtake Marvel Studios first big team-up film.

To achieve the milestone, Black Panther clawed its way past fellow Marvel Studios blockbuster The Avengers, which pulled in $623.4 million in the US when it was released in 2012.

Since their launch in 2006, the distribution company has established a good working relationship with independent studios worldwide and distributing movies like "Wonder Women", "Doctor Strange", "Justice League", "Avengers", "AVATAR" all which are among the highest grossing movies ever produced in Hollywood. And now, after spending five weekends in the top spot on the domestic charts, fending off all sorts of major new releases, Black Panther just crossed yet another major milestone. By doing so, the 2018 Marvel film will become the sixth highest-grossing movie ever to release domestically.

The Ryan Coogler-helmed superhero movie is at $590.4M worldwide and $612.1M domestic for $1,202.5M global through Wednesday. The question now is, can it top Jurassic World ($652.2 million) and Titanic ($659.3 million)? But there's little chance of the current estimate falling by the $7 million it would take to leave Marvel's latest in second place for one more day. The Avengers movies have historically been Marvel's biggest box office performers, and this one is sure to benefit from a number of advantages. Kendrick Lamar's Black Panther soundtrack debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 its first week of release, and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Daniel Acuna are about to relaunch Marvel's Black Panther comic. But, until there's actual movement on the sequel, Coogler and co. and continue to revel in Black Panther's astounding critical and commercial success.
