Black Panther breaks another box office record

Black Panther and Killmonger face off

Recently, Marvel's Stan Lee also praised the film and its director cum cast on its phenomenal success.

The all-star cast was directed by Ryan Coogler, whose previous credits include Creed and Fruitvale Station. Black Panther now sits at $263.2M domestically and is poised to hit $300M by this weekend.

"Black Panther" tells the story of T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the new king of Wakanda, a fictional country, hidden in east Africa, with advanced technology beyond anything imaginable.

In the beginning of the film, T'Challa is torn between his heritage and culture, and the duties that being a ruler in modern times brings.

One such fine example is of a man who planned to propose in a Black Panther outfit, in a theatre running the same movie.

One of the most interesting elements of this film is the design of Wakanda itself. "This film is a godsend that will lift the self-esteem of black children in the US and around the world for a long time". Now, Marvel is set to explore just what the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda is all about in a brand new Black Panther #1, coming in May. Marvel Studios' President and Producer Kevin Feige has already stated they would love for Coogler to come back for the sequel to be announced later. "It's so inspiring. I really, really hope people can see this new and personal vision of Black Panther-and I'll still follow the brilliant lead of Brian Stelfreeze's design and settings", said Acuña. More are expected to come pouring its way as the film continues to dominate at the box office.

"As a kid, growing up, when you see somebody who looks like an older version of you doing something awesome, it's like, 'What's going on?'" he said.

Unfortunately, it occurred at a point in the movie where audiences just wanted to get to the resolution and so it slowed down a part of the movie and we were afraid audiences were checking out... It was a cultural moment, one that many Black fans celebrated as they turned up to see the movie together. It took The Avengers 9 days to accomplish that feat at home, and Black Panther may do that even faster.
