Since opening in theaters on Feb. 16, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther has become the top-grossing superhero film of all time in North America. The Disney and Marvel release achieved the milestone on this past Saturday after passing fellow Marvel title The Avengers, which grossed $623.4 million in 2012. Globally, Black Panther finished Sunday with $1.237 billion in ticket sales, surpassing Iron Man 3 ($1.214 billion) to rank as the No. 3 superhero title of all time at the worldwide box office behind Avengers ($1.518 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion). It’s also now the No. 12 highest-grossing pic in history. Black Panther totaled $200 million to make before marketing and is now only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically, finishing Sunday with $630.9 million to put it at No. 5 on the all-time list.
