The only movies standing in Black Panther's way at the domestic box office are Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.6 million), Avatar ($760.5 million) and Titanic ($659.3 million). The film is now the highest grossing superhero movie of all time in the United States, and the highest grossing solo superhero film worldwide. Titanic now stands at $659.4, so you do the math. It now sits just $54 million shy of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which earned $1.333 billion following its December opening.

"Black Panther" tells the story of T'Chaka (played by Chadwick Boseman), the ruler of the African nation Wakanda.

Disney said Tuesday that "Black Panther" has topped the studio's "Frozen" for the 10th spot on the worldwide box office list with $1.28 billion. The only other two comic book adaptations that lie ahead in the prestigious list are Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) with $1.4 billion and The Avengers (2012) with $1.67 billion.
