Black Panther Most Tweeted, Biggest Superhero Movie... Ever!

'Black Panther' Tops $1.2B WW & Pushes Disney Past $1B At International Box Office

However, when adjusted for inflation, Black Panther is the fourth-highest grossing superhero film in the U.S., trailing The Avengers, The Dark Knight, and Spider-Man. And as if that weren't enough, T'Challa's Wednesday gross of $3M overseas lifted the Walt Disney Studios 2018 global box office past $1B. The movie also recently overtook Star Wars: The Last Jedi's domestic total of $619 million.

Marvel's latest has grossed $630.9 million in its sixth week of release, topping the $623 million The Avengers made in 2012, according to Box Office Mojo. Black Panther's takings now stand at $1.24bn.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Danai Gurira. The Ryan Coogler-directed flick has officially just become the highest-earning superhero movie of all time domestically.

That also means that Black Panther is now the highest-earning superhero movie of all time, narrowly surpassing such stiff competition as Howard the Duck, Tank Girl, and Steel. Globally, the film has grossed $1.237 billion in sales, beating out 2013's Iron Man 3, which brought in $1.214 billion. Several of the cast members are set to return in Avengers: Infinity War which hits theaters on April 27. Nevertheless, China is still Black Panther's top earner in respect to the film's worldwide box office. Black Panther has now earned more in the domestic box office than any other comic book movie ever adapted for the silver screen in history.
