After an incredible opening weekend you knew Marvel Studios latest hit film Black Panther was going to do well, but I don’t think anyone could have predicted this. After the Box Office earnings from this past weekend, Black Panther is now the highest grossing super hero film of all-time in the U.S.! Let that sink in for a minute…all-time.
It took over the #1 position from Marvel’s The Avengers, which earned $623.4 million in 2012, and one of 7 super hero films to hit the $600 million mark. It’s also in the #3 position all-time internationally at a staggering $1,237 billion, passing Iron Man 3 ($1.214 billion) and still behind Avengers ($1.518 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion).
I would say the $200 million it took to make Black Panther was well worth it, and this cements a Black Panther 2 coming out in the next few years. The massive success it’s had also makes Bob Iger’s comments a few weeks ago all the more interesting when he said it’s possible we could see a Black Panther attraction coming to the Disney Parks sometime in the future too.
UPDATE – 4/29/18: Black Panther is going to have some real competition as the Avengers Infinity War Opening Weekend set the all-time record!
