There’s a new king of the world. Or at least, a new No. 3 in the list of the highest-grossing movies released in the U.S. The Black Panther box office has just sunk Titanic‘s record as the third biggest U.S. theatrical release of all time.

Marvel’s Black Panther has become even more of a box office giant than any of the industry’s wildest predictions and expectations. The film has broken record after record since hitting theaters on February 16, and now it has a new crowning achievement.

Even though Black Panther won’t be at the top of the box office for six weekends in a row, the money raked in this weekend has sent the movie past $624 million on the domestic charts. That means Black Panther has officially surpassed The Avengers total gross of $623.4 million in 2012 and it’s now the highest grossing superhero movie ever in the United States. Read More »

Black Panther is an enormous hit at the box office, earning a whopping $1.18 billion in just five weeks of release. This week, the film should surpass The Avengers to become not only the largest grossing film from Disney’s Marvel Studios, but the highest grossing superhero film of all time. One of the things that all the critics and fans are talking about is the worldbuilding of the film, at the center of which is the fictional, secretive, and technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda.

After seeing the movie, I walked out saying that I wanted to visit Wakanda. And I’m not alone, as searches for travel to the non-existent country have skyrocketed on travel websites. I walked out of the movie theater speculating that Disney could build Wakanda in Disney World Resort’s Animal Kingdom park, which already features a land designed to immerse you in a modern African village. But rumors have turned to the more future and technology-focused Epcot park…but could one painting at a different theme park prevent Wakanda and Black Panther from appearing in Disney World?
