Disney/Marvel's continuing marvel, Black Panther, has become the 14th film to cross $1.2B worldwide. Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.

We know that Marvel Studios got nearly everything right with its last release Black Panther, but who knew that the film would break the domestic record set by Avengers as the highest grossing Marvel film, but that's exactly what's happened.

Black Panther has ascended to the box-office throne.

Plus, the current popularity of "Black Panther" has further stoked excitement for the third "Avengers" team-up, which should especially challenge the main franchise's predecessors at the global box office.

The Marvel epic surpassed "The Avengers", which grossed a massive $623.4 million in 2012, when it reached $630.9 million according to Sunday's (March 25th 2018) calculations.

For now, the only films standing in Black Panther's way of becoming the highest-grossing domestic film ever are Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million), Avatar ($760 million), Titanic ($659 million) and Jurassic World ($652 million). The film needed only 26 days to make $1 billion. The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron are now the top two, with $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively. It stands at 1.23 billion dollars globally, while The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron earned 1.51 billion dollars and 1.40 billion dollars respectively. Especially since the film will still be in theaters once Avengers: Infinity War releases on April 27.
