Black Panther raked in an astounding $361 million during its worldwide debut, smashing box office records and making it the “biggest domestic opening weekend ever for a Marvel Studios film that doesn’t have “Avengers” in the title,” according to the Buzzfeed.
I don’t usually believe in the public’s hype about things, but #BlackPanther was phenomenal. I’m just going to say it, it’s my favorite #Marvel Cinematic Universe movie so far. Go see it. The hype was real.

The movie, which is Marvel Studios first black superhero film, also earned the title of best domestic opening weekend for any movie released in February, March, or April – a record previously held by Deadpool.
As soon as you walk out of the #BlackPanther theater, you immediately want to buy another ticket for another showing.
It’s. That. Good.
