Revealing worldwide collection numbers, Deadline reports that Black Panther has surpassed $300 million in the global market with $83.8 million coming from the second-weekend box office collection.

Black Panther's $108 million haul is actually bigger than the opening weekends for Justice League ($93 million) and Wonder Woman ($103.3 million), as well as The Fate of the Furious ($98.8 million). Amidst the Bollywood dominance, the movie has opened to good numbers at the Indian box office. "Even going back to Wesley Snipes" "Blade' trilogy, that series routinely kept pace with the domestic gross, and actually exceeded North America with the trilogy capper". Ryan also happens to be the director of the American superhero venture. It also delivered the second largest second weekend of all-time only behind 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

A key factor in the popularity and wide acceptance of Black Panther as being the best African American super hero movie is the inclusion of a majority black cast, music, production, and directing staff.

A quick check of Rotten Tomatoes reveals it has a 97% favorable rating (326 positive reviews to 11 negative), with its audience rating coming in lower at 78% having stated they liked it.

Later on Sunday the White House said in a statement that "denuclearization must be the result of any dialogue with North Korea". That, in part, is believed to have led to the North Koreans' cancellation of their meeting with the vice president.

The film has been backed to the hilt by Marvel's parent company Disney, benefiting from a muscular $350 million production and marketing budget and monthslong publicity campaign.

Audiences have given the movie high marks. The latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has achieved two new major milestones in the box office, and does not appear to be stopping there just yet.

If Black Panther continues it's dominance, it's destined to be the newest member in the $1 billion movie club.

We can see more emphasis on the intricate designs Park embedded into the suit, a collar that flows into the cape, as well as more gold in the necklace and torso region, so as to indicate the regal nature of Black Panther. The film will therefore trounce three newcomers - the R-rated comedy Game Night, the sci-fi thriller Annihilation, and the YA romance Every Day - while declining just 47% from last week's record-breaking debut.
