Not only has Black Panther been outselling Captain America: Civil War to become the best-selling MCU movie, but now Black Panther has taken down Batman vs. Superman.
Fandango let it be known that Black Panther is on its way to breaking another advance sales ticket record as Black Panther will become Fandangoâ€™s top selling superhero movie of all-time, beating out WB's Batman vs. Superman, which made a whopping $166 million for its opening.
It's now projected that Black Panther will have a weekend box office opening of between $120 million to as high as possibly $150 million.
Black Panther is also currently Fandango's #1 daily ticket seller, and reviews for the movie have been raving about the flick.
Fandango also previously revealed that Black Panther was the #2 most anticipated movie of 2018 behind Marvel's own The Avengers: Infinity War and that star Chadwick Boseman is the most anticipated comic book character in a standalone movie, with Danai Gurira and Winston Duke considered as rising stars, and Michael B.
