Black Panther released to theaters about a month ago, and already it has grossed over $1 billion worldwide at the box office. This makes it the fifth Marvel movie to reach that milestone, and the 33rd movie in general to do so.

The wildly successful film has earned over $530 million domestic, meaning that it will soon surpass Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($532 million domestically) and The Dark Knight ($534 million domestically), which will make it the seventh-biggest domestic grosser ever. Once it does surpass The Dark Knight, it'll then be the second-biggest comic book superhero film in North America, with only The Avengers ($623 million domestically) behind it.

Black Panther also broke a record for selling more pre-sale tickets than any other Marvel film. For more movie-related news, read our geek guide to 2018 films by heading here.
