The latest film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther, deserves to call itself “the number one movie in the world”.

In addition to earning US$242 million domestically over the weekend and more than $426 million worldwide, many people believe the film will gain an even higher profit. Indiewire.com, for instance, believes that Black Panther may exceed another Marvel film, The Avengers, in North America.

Black Panther was first introduced to audiences in 2016 through Captain America: Civil War. The star of Black Panther, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), is set to join Avengers: Infinity War.

Ryan Coogler, the director and writer of Black Panther, said T’Challa’s appearance in Captain America was a good introduction. “I can say that the universe of Captain America and Black Panther are closely related to each other,” Coogler said in a statement, pointing out that both have a connection to vibranium and the super soldier. (wir/kes)
