This is Marvel's first to be directed by an African-American, and it has already surpassed recently released Tomb Raider to gain the fifth box office crown in the United States.

It was also appreciated the by Michelle Obama who tweeted in February: "Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories."
