In fact, Forbes says it's the second biggest non-sequel debut record in the Marvel Universe, just behind 'The Avengers.' 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".

Minnows Rochdale Force Tottenham Into FA Cup Replay
Spurs could have been forgiven for believing they had their last-eight spot sewn up but Davies' late equaliser ensured otherwise. His effort, his sixth FA Cup goal in this year's competition, gave Michel Vorm no chance.

But is Black Panther truly worthy of the praise? Where would Black Panther really place among those films?

With a stellar domestic start and a solid global launch so far, it's quite probable that "Black Panther" will join the 32 films with $1 billion in worldwide earnings by the end of its run.

Duke, 31, was one of the several standout cast members of an already star-packed cast that featured Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown, and more. Its success has given the US box office a major lift, with 2018 grosses up 7.3% to $1.64 billion as of February 19, according to comScore.
