Former 'The Flash' Director Uses 'Black Panther' Success To Throw Shade At 'Justice League'

Starting last week, in the first few days of Black Panther's highly-anticipated theatrical release, some Twitter accounts started trying to spread false accounts of attacks at screenings of the movie. Sunday's estimates had initially pegged the film at $192 million and $218 million, respectively. And that's just four days into its run.

"Black Panther" also dethroned "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" to claim the biggest Monday earner on record with $40.2 million, surpassing the $40.1 million mark from "The Force Awakens". It's the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and based on 50-year-old material created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

The Marvel film earned the fifth-highest opening of all time and the third-highest four-day opening in history, according to Box Office Mojo. That figure puts it just ahead of Justice League's domestic total ($228 million), which simultaneously draws attention to Marvel's triumph, and Warner's cinematic vehicle crash.

Ryan Coogler's directing abilities saw "Black Panther" topple the previous record set by "Deadpool", which brought in $152 million domestically over the four-day holiday in 2016. Not just here in the States, but in foreign markets too. Its global take puts its worldwide total at an estimated $404 million through Monday.

Prather says it is important for people to visually see different cultural perspectives outside of what they're used to. "Beyond being the right thing to do, it makes for richer storytelling", Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis told the outlet.

One local man's efforts blossomed to perfection on Saturday as he took a group of Columbus kids to the premiere of Black Panther.

But how will it fare going forward?

For years, Zavier Thompson has followed of Marvel superhero movies. Those attempts failed, as Black Panther boasts largely favorable scores on those sites. Now, we're looking at a total domestic haul of (nearly faints) $564.7 million.

Especially as it seems that the sixth and missing Infinity Stone is thought to be located somewhere within Wakanda, with it being quite the surprise that we didn't see it revealed during Black Panther.

So, with no further ado, let's jump into the Top 10 Greatest Moments in Black Panther...

Realistically, the film is likely on track for anywhere between $850 million to $1 billion-plus. Presenting unseen behind-the-scenes photos from the movie sets, stunning concept art, and exclusive secrets from the handsome, mysterious nation of Wakanda with interviews with the stars of the film, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker and Danai Gurira, this stunning collector's book is a must-have for all fans of everything Marvel.
