Black Panther Box Office Records

It's Official: Black Panther Is the Highest-Grossing Superhero Film of All Time

Black Panther arrived in theaters with its claws out back in February and hasn't stopped smashing records since. Weekend after weekend, we watched the film score huge feats like surpassing the $1 billion mark, making it only the 33rd film in movie history to do so. It's also the 16th Disney film to ever reach the milestone. Black Panther joined just four other Marvel movies that have grossed more than a billion dollars at the box office, including The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Black Panther is now the highest-grossing superhero film of all time in the US. Of all time! The film earned the milestone on March 24, finally surpassing The Avengers, which grossed $623.4 million in 2012. On top of that, the Ryan Coogler-directed hit is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically. Is there any record Black Panther won't break?!

The film is truly unique and historic just as a piece of cinematic art; we've never seen a superhero movie with a nearly all-black cast, and this one in particular celebrates the beauty of the cast's natural hair and places a special emphasis on traditional African costumes and African culture. By all means, it's not hard to see why Black Panther means so much to the black community. Then there's the icing on the cake: the amount of records it's been shattering left and right. Ahead are all the other box office records Black Panther has obliterated — so far:
