Rolling Stone predicts that at the end of the weekend, "Black Panther" "will likely be at Number Five on the all-time (not adjusted for inflation) domestic box office list, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avatar, Titanic and Jurassic World."

According to the reports, "Black Panther" will have surpassed "The Avengers" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" on the all-time list.

Worldwide, Black Panther is also expected to surpass "Iron Man 3" which rake in a $1.2 billion total this weekend as number third among superhero films behind "The Avengers'" ($1.5 billion) and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" ($1.4 billion) on the global all-time list.

As you already know, our next encounter with "Black Panther" and the world of Wakanda will be in "Avengers: Infinity War", which will hit cinemas on April 27, 2018.
