Wakanda to stay! Black Panther is the highest grossing superhero film ever

The film has now pulled in $631 million in the United States, making it the highest-grossing superhero movie in history in the USA (not adjusted for inflation). Then it will be time to torpedo the current all-time USA box office champion, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which plateaued at $936 million.

According to a Deadline report, the superhero smash has secured over $1.2 million in global sales since coming out last month.

Black Panther is also now one of seven movies to ever earn more than $600 million domestically. Black Panther is now the highest-grossing superhero of all time, after the Marvel blockbuster surpassed the previous mark set by The Avengers. Avengers: Age of Ultron has a total collection of 1.40 billion dollars while Iron Man is at 1.21 billion dollars. For instance, Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to 2013's Pacific Rim and the reboot of Tomb Raider with Alicia Vikander in the titular role have underperformed significantly because the audience is still going to watch Black Panther.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Kenyan sensation Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan and Letitia Wright and is directed by Ryan Coogler, the first African-American to direct a Marvel movie.

Once news of Black Panther's new feat went viral, fans took to Twitter instantly celebrating another huge victory for the film. Especially since the film will still be in theaters once Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27. For now, it appears Titanic and Jurassic World are within Black Panther's reach, but it will unlikely surpass Avatar and The Force Awakens for the top two spots.
