BLACK PANTHER Becomes Third Highest Grossing MCU Movie Of All Time At The Domestic Box Office

BLACK PANTHER Becomes Third Highest Grossing MCU Movie Of All Time At The Domestic Box Office

Following Monday's box office tally, Black Panther has surpassed Captain America: Civil War and Iron Man 3 to become the 3rd highest domestic grossing MCU movie ever. It now eyes both Avengers movies.

Black Panther has become the third highest grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of all time at the domestic box office, trailing only Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Following two strong weekends, Black Panther earned another $8.1 million on Monday bringing its domestic box office haul to $411.7 million, and surpassing the domestic box office totals of Captain America: Civil War ($408 million) and Iron Man 3 ($409 million). Though it trails both Avengers movies currently, there's a very good chance King T'Challa and company could surpass Age of Ultron, which earned $459 million at the domestic box office.

Given its strong reception and little in the way of competition - only Jennifer Lawrence's Red Sparrow and the remake of Death Wish stand in its way - Black Panther also has a chance of dethroning the first Avengers movie. The first Marvel team-up film is currently the fifth-highest grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office with $623 million.

Black Panther is currently 22nd on the all-time domestic charts, but Tuesday's box office numbers should boost it past the likes of Wonder Woman ($412 million) and Toy Story 3 ($415 million). The sky's the limit for the Marvel standalone film which has surpassed all expectation at the box office. Originally projected for a $100-120 million opening weekend, the film broke records by earning $235 million over the four-day holiday weekend. It earned an additional $111.7 million the following weekend, which ranked as the second-best second weekend of all time.

Black Panther is currently tracking for over $600 million domestically which would easily put it in the top 10 domestic box office grosses of all time. With international markets factored in, Black Panther - which has an overseas total of $316.2 million - should also easily join the $1 billion club.

Looking ahead, Marvel has another surefire hit on its hands with Avengers: Infinity War due out on May 4.
