Black Panther becomes Marvel's highest grossing film

In just a month since its release, "Black Panther" hit a new milestone in record-breaking run. Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.

"Black Panther", Marvel's latest superhero venture, surpassed "The Avengers" at the box office Saturday, making it the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time in North America, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In fact, Black Panther has only grossed $95.9 million in the Middle Kingdom, as of March 25th. Not only has this fact been proven by figures, Black Panther has awoken a powerful movement amongst people of color.

This weekend will probably see Black Panther finally relinquish the #1 spot at the box office to Pacific Rim Uprising. Then, it became the first film since 2009's Avatar to stay at number one for five straight weeks. Globally, the film has grossed $1.237 billion in sales, beating out 2013's Iron Man 3, which brought in $1.214 billion. It now holds a worldwide total gross of $1.23 billion.

Both "Avengers" releases have performed mightily overseas, where they have drawn well more than half of their audience - which bodes very well for "Avengers: Infinity War", due out April 27 and in which Black Panther/T'Challa is again featured. There's no doubt Black Panther will pass both Age of Ultron and The Avengers. Both films earned a whopping 97% fresh rating. It must now cross the $1.5 billion threshold in order to be crowned the highest grossing comic book movie of all time in the worldwide box office.

That also makes Black Panther the fifth highest-grossing movie ever in the US, coming up just shy of Jurassic World's $652 million.

Black Panther is playing in theaters everywhere.
