Black Panther's advance ticket sales are topping Captain America: Civil War

The movie opened for advance ticket sales at the start of the week, and has already overtaken previous top-seller Captain America: Civil War (the movie which, of course, introduced Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, the Black Panther, to the MCU in the first place). Civil War is Fandango's fastest-selling Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

Though everyone is gearing up for the release of Avengers: Infinity War in May, next month will see the release of Marvel Studios' first black superhero-lead movie, Black Panther. That record now belongs to Deadpool's $132M opening, but Black Panther may just have what it takes to beat it.


If that's the case, Black Panther would not only become the highest opening of all-time for a February release, besting Fox/Marvel's R-rated Deadpool ($132.4M), but the best opening before summer. Black Panther is opening on President's Day weekend and close to Valentine's Day. His mettle is tested when the dissident Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) begins to threaten his rule. "The film's from his perspective and he's surrounded by people who he loves and cares for". Bassett herself is still waiting to see the finished film. With it due to hit theaters in just over a month, it shouldn't be too much longer before early reactions and reviews hit. Let us know how excited you are for Black Panther by giving the movie your own ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating below.
