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).

One of the biggest surprises to come out of Black Panther news recently was its passing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the domestic box office. The critically acclaimed offering from director Ryan Coogler has so far earned more than $1.2 billion in the global market combined.

The sequel to to Guillermo del Toro's 2013 film, "Pacific Rim", which stars John Boyega, delivered an estimated $122.5 million overseas and $28 million domestically. Several of the cast members are set to return in Avengers: Infinity War which hits theaters on April 27. It's the 16th Disney film to reach this milestone, and the fifth Marvel film to do so - joining the ranks of "The Avengers", "Avengers: Age of Ultron", "Iron Man 3", and "Captain America: Civil War". It must now cross the $1.5 billion threshold in order to be crowned the highest grossing comic book movie of all time in the worldwide box office.

Black Panther has become the highest-grossing superhero film in the United States till date. Both films earned a whopping 97% fresh rating.
