Will Infinity War topple Black Panther's box office milestones?

Though "Black Panther" was knocked to the number two spot this past weekend, it would be remiss to deny the fact that the film has now grossed $631 million since its release in February. Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.

The Ryan Coogler-directed blockbuster has become the highest grossing superhero film of all time in the US, the Hollywood Reporter writes.

As if Black Panther hasn't broken enough records already, it just officially broke yet another on Saturday (March 24).
