Black Panther won its fifth consecutive weekend this past week over new releases A Wrinkle in Time and Tomb Raider, marking the first time any movie has won five straight weekends at the box office since Avatar in 2009.

Black Panther has earned $618,644,236 thus far while the Avengers earned $623,357,910 during its initial theatrical run.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther has become the top-grossing superhero film of all time in North America, not accounting for inflation.

Meanwhile Avengers Infinity War is released in a month and its already broken Black Panther's pre-ticket sales record in just six hours. As long as Black Panther isn't removed from virtually every major theater in the United States, it should pass The Last Jedi's domestic gross today - Saturday, March 24. When it does, it will become the top-grossing superhero movie ever (solo or otherwise).

The movie which was distributed in Cinema nationwide by Blue Pictures now sits as the number 1 biggest movie ever made by Marvel Studios. Still, it points to the biceps on director Ryan Coogler's action flick, which premiered February 16. and is still showing in almost 4,000 theaters.

Early projections for Black Panther's box office premiere had the movie at a solid $120 million, but the movie came out and destroyed those predictions by earning over $200 million, shocking the industry. And as if that weren't enough, T'Challa's Wednesday gross of $3M overseas lifted the Walt Disney Studios 2018 worldwide box office past $1B. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said there's "nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that", but he also added, "We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one".
