They also note that 'Black Panther' is the "Biggest opening weekend ever for any movie not directed by a white guy". As a matter of fact, Deadline reports that the Marvel epic is now eyeing a second weekend in the region of $104 million and $109 million, which, to put things into perspective, is still bigger than Justice League's opening weekend ($97 million).

The all-time record holder for a Tuesday is Star Wars: The Last Jedi with $37.3M, a number Marvel is unlikely to ever best.

Tuesday's worldwide take was $14.6 million for a total of $199.2 million, led by the United Kingdom with $28.5 million and South Korea with $28.3 million.

The higher Monday figure gives "Black Panther" the second biggest four-day weekend, behind only the $288.1 million of "The Force Awakens".
