The #BlackPanther Roars in Hollywood…

Marvel’s latest superhero movie featured a Black superhero that kicked the competitions butt. The movie went number one at the box office, bringing in a whopping $202,003,951 its opening weekend. The movie has been so successful that it just passed The Avengers to become the most successful superhero film in America. According to Boxofficemojo.com as of April 1, 2018, Black Panther has made 650,699,634 in America, yes that’s just in America. The rest of the world combined it has made $623,200,000. So a grand total (so far, it’s still playing in theaters) $1,273,899,634 worldwide. That is such an impressive number because Marvel has been dominating the box office these last eight years or so, and their biggest box office hit was The Avengers. The Avengers made $623,357,910 in America so Black Panther has crushed that number. If you count the overseas number Black Panther made  $1,273,899,634 which sits third behind both Avenger movies.

Black Panther is an awesome action movie, with great graphics and more importantly an amazing story. To me, it showed how even though tempted to use its powers to take over the world, Black Panther chose not too, he chose to keep it within his community. To me, that showed not just the Black Panther’s strength but his brains. This movie may have not brought together a group of superheroes like The Avengers but it didn’t need it as Black Panther and his crew were enough.

Will Black Panther catch The Avengers before it’s all said and done? It will be tough this late in the movies run but none too less in America Black Panther rules and I believe it shows that there can a powerful black superhero that can make us all believe in!
