While superhero films have always made their mark in the global box office, Marvel's newest film Black Panther has seemingly reached new heights. Making $192 million in the opening weekend and an estimated amount of over $380 million at the time of this writing, Black Panther has become the most successful film to be made by a black director which also showcases a largely black cast. The opening revenue alone marks it as the second-highest opener for a Marvel film and the fifth-highest opening weekend revenue overall. Such impressive records made by a movie about the African culture situated in a fictional African nation certainly breaks any racial stereotypes previously held by international viewers, and bodes a positive message as far as the global box office is considered. Such records also show that superhero films are here to stay, and will be ruling the international charts in the near future as well.
