Black Panther Highest Grossing Superhero Movie Of All Time In U.S.

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther continues to make history! The Marvel film, starring Chadwick Boseman, has become the top-grossing superhero film of all time in North America, not accounting for inflation.

The film achieved the milestone on Saturday after passing The Avengers, which grossed $623.4 million in 2012. To date, Black Panther is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically, finishing Sunday with $630.9 million to put it at No. 5 on the all-time list.

On a global scale, Black Panther finished Sunday with $1.237 billion in ticket sales, surpassing Iron Man 3 ($1.214 billion) to rank as the No. 3 superhero title of all time at the worldwide box office behind Avengers ($1.518 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion). It’s also now the No. 12 highest-grossing pic in history.

The movie, which cost $200 million to make before marketing, was a bold move on the part of Disney and Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige.

The film, which featured a predominately black cast included Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
