Box Office: 'Black Panther' Becomes Top-Grossing Superhero Film of All Time in U.S.
The Disney and Marvel tentpole wrests the crown from 'The Avengers.' Ryan Coogler's Black Panther has become the top-grossing superhero film of all time in North America, not accounting for inflation. The Disney and Marvel release achieved the milestone on Saturday after passing up fellow Marvel title The Avengers, which grossed $623.4 million in 2012. To boot, Black Panther is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically (it currently ranks No. 6 on the list).
