Popular movie Black Panther has reached a milestone that only four other Marvel Studios titles have achieved, so far. The film, starring Chadwick Boseman as the newly crowned King T’Challa, has joined the $1 billion mark at the global box office. Even more astonishing, the movie did this in just 26 days.
Black Panther joins The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War within the Marvel Cinematic Universe to reach this achievement. Black Panther is also now the 33rd film, the 16th Walt Disney film, and the fifth Marvel Studios film to gross $1 billion in revenue.
Domestically, by Saturday morning, the film grossed $521 million. Internationally, the film will cross $500 million this weekend, after it hit Chinese theaters on March 9 with an estimated opening of $22 million.
