Upcoming movie sells the most presale tickets in Marvel history

Black Panther is set to debut in the cinemas on February 16, 2018.

This makes the upcoming superhero movie by Ryan Coogler the first movie to earn the crown for most presale tickets sold for any Marvel movie.

Tickets for the movie went on sale on Monday, January 8.

Although the movie might not hit the top-grossing Marvel movie ever – a position that's still held by The Avengers – the presale numbers for Black Panther indicate a strong opening weekend for the movie at the box office.

According to Deadline's estimates, the film could gross between the best February weekend box office of all time to a decent $80 million.

Black Panther is set to debut in the cinemas on February 16, 2018.

Kendrick Lamar and his label 'Top Dawg Entertainment' will be producing the soundtrack, which will feature a new song from Lamar and SZA called "All The Stars," as well as Kendrick/Vince Staples collab.
