Marvel president "absolutely" wants to see a Black Panther sequel

Will Smith is joining the growing number of celebrities to praise Black Panther on social media.

Fandango announced that it sold more than 30% of the US four-day weekend box-office dollars for Black Panther, marking one of Fandango's largest shares of opening weekend for any movie in the company's 18-year history.

Film fans, actors and comic enthusiasts in Nigeria's commercial capital Lagos have been flocking to screenings of Marvel superhero movie Black Panther, which opened in Africa's most populous country this week.

"We had a couple of hours to look over it, punch up some jokes and stuff like that", Glover told Entertainment Tonight. Once again, toss "All the Stars" or "Opps" onto your musical device of choice, grab that Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper (yeah, I know, I should be drinking green tea) and let's dive in!

"Donald's one of the funniest people that I know so he had some interesting ideas and Stephen's insane talented as well". Director Ryan Coogler said it best in an interview: "The Black Panther is a man; he's a king; he's a ruler; he's a leader, and he answers to no one". We played with a lot of different ways to end it.

I want to share something that Nelson Mandela said to me. A week after its release, the movie surpassed "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" as the second-highest grossing four-day domestic opening of all time, raking in $242 million at over 4,000 North American locations. Hopefully we'll be able to see it once Black Panther arrives on DVD and Blu-ray.

Tinie Tempah, who said he didn't see many films with main characters "the same skin tone as me" growing up, is among the people and organisations who hired out cinemas for special screenings of the film for young people. This is certainly the first time a fictional film that has received such enormous support from people all around the world. More are expected to come pouring its way as the film continues to dominate at the box office.

While the figures above aren't adjusted for inflation, the larger takeaway is that Black Panther is a raging success.
