Black Panther "Warriors of Wakanda" Featurette

'Black Panther' Sets Marvel Pre-Sales Record for First 24 Hours

Though presales have been great, it remains to be seen if Black Panther will repeat Civil War's $179 million opening. The first 24 hours of ticket pre-sales for the film were theon Fandango.

Video: In Marvel's comics, the Dora Milaje are an elite, all-female squad of warriors sworn to protect the Wakandan throne and its king - the Black Panther. Fans, also, seem excited to finally spend time in Wakanda on screen, though we saw it ever so briefly at the end of Civil War, when Captain America (Chris Evans) put Bucky (Sebastian Stan) on ice.

"Black Panther" is directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station) and premieres during Black History Month on February 16.

The Panther film is on track to become one of the biggest ever Marvel films, going by its ticket pre-sales, the media reports. "Okoye represents the old guard and tradition, while my character Nakia challenges tradition", Nyong'o says.

Did you get your ticket?

The movie opened for advance ticket sales at the start of the week, and has already overtaken previous top-seller Captain America: Civil War (the movie which, of course, introduced Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, the Black Panther, to the MCU in the first place). Boseman debuted as Black Panther on the big screen a year ago in Captain America: Civil War.

Aside from Boseman, other members of the "Black Panther" cast are Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Andy Serkis and Forest Whitaker. Current estimates have "Black Panther" bringing in just around $85 million on its opening weekend on Feb. 16, still far below "Deadpool's" February record of $132.4 million.
