Big news this morning - #BlackPanther sold more advance tickets on @Fandango in its first 24 hours than any other MCU movie, besting previous record holder Captain America: Civil War. Long live the King! pic.twitter.com/JL1c28AgWm— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) January 10, 2018
The film helmed by Creed director Ryan Coogler stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther. Other major actors and actresses like Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis also star.
Since the king of Wakanda's first appearance in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, Marvel fans have been overtaken by regal hero's presence. His first solo film will without a doubt be the blackest MCU film as it centers around a political power struggle for T'Challa's crown.
Tickets are available now. Black Panther lands in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
