Today, Black Panther is now the all-time highest grossing superhero movie in Hollywood history.

Black Panther continues its record-breaking pace as the Marvel film collected another $8M at the box office to now officially become the top earning superhero flick in North America, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter.

Black Panther, with a domestic total take of $631M, surpassed Marvel’s The Avengers on Saturday, which made $623.4M at the domestic box office back in 2012. Ryan Coogler’s directorial masterpiece also boast the bragging rights of being one of seven movies ever to gross over $600M domestically.

The Ryan Coogler-directed film is now one of the top five overall biggest moneymaking movies ever made in America.

Deadline reported on Thursday that Black Panther became the 14th movie ever to cross $1.2B internationally — it’s set to surpass Iron Man 3 ($1.214B) to become the third highest grossing superhero movie ever worldwide, behind only The Avengers ($1.5B) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4B).

To the pleasure of Black Panther and Avenger fans alike, some of Black Panther’s main characters will appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War next month.
