Wakanda Forever: 'Black Panther' Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

In the month since its release, "Black Panther" has broken records at the box office and barriers in the film industry.

According to Forbes Marvel's Black Panther comic book blockbuster has raked in a gross of $1-billion worldwide in its fourth weekend.

Out of all of the characters in the Black Panther universe, T'Challa's sister, Shuri, will end up making her mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The only other Marvel movies to cross that mark are The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War. To break it down further, that puts Black Panther at $521 million domestically in the USA alone, ranking it 9th of All-Time and its still rising. Its $521 million in USA sales puts it among the 10 highest-grossing releases domestically, and global sales are expected to surpass $500 million this weekend, Disney said in an emailed statement. In fact, it's on the verge of having the third-highest fourth weekend of all time. While critics were anxious of the reaction, the film opened with $20 million on it's first day, putting it at the $500 million mark internationally. "Avatar" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" now hold the one and two spots, with $50.3 million and $42.4 million respectively.

The result, he argued, had been a "decimation" of U.S. communities from a sustained "assault". It said the issue required a "multilateral solution".

Black Panther was expected to do well at the box office, but it has shattered all expectations since its release.

Following that debut, Black Panther is now eyeing an opening weekend somewhere around $70 million. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther.

The Ryan Coogler-directed film stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
