“Black Panther” has been breaking box office records left and right, and it still may not be done. But for now, here are some of the historical feats “Black Panther” has pulled off and the big-name films it has managed to top at the box office. 
Marvel

Biggest February opening weekend:  Two years ago, “Deadpool” pushed the boundaries of what R-rated blockbuster can do at the box office with a $152 million four-day start on President’s Day weekend. But “Black Panther” is blowing by that record with $192 million in three days.

Biggest pre-summer opening weekend:  Hollywood has recognized that a box office hit can be released at any time of the year, as seen when the live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” made $174.7 million last year. “Black Panther” is expected to beat that record by an $18 million margin.
Walt Disney Pictures

Biggest opening for a non-team-up superhero movie:  Superhero movies with more than one hero like “The Avengers” tend to make more money than their single-hero counterparts, but “Black Panther” has not only beaten a five-year record held by “Iron Man 3,” but is also posting a higher opening than films like “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Captain America: Civil War,” films that have showcased all of Marvel’s biggest heroes and, in the case of “Civil War,” featured Black Panther in his big screen debut.

Top 5 highest openings of all-time:  “Black Panther” won’t stay in the top 5 for very long, as “Avengers: Infinity War” will bump it off the list when it hits theaters in May. But for now, “Black Panther” will sit alongside the likes of “Jurassic World,” “The Avengers” and the two latest “Star Wars” films for the biggest openings of all-time. Along with the aforementioned films like “Civil War” and “Age of Ultron,” “Black Panther” has topped titles like “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” films.

Biggest opening by a Black Director:  It has been a watershed year for black filmmakers, with Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” winning Best Picture, Jordan Peele getting a Best Director Oscar nomination for “Get Out” and F. Gary Gray directing a billion-dollar hit with “The Fate of the Furious.” While it remains to be seen whether “Black Panther” can pass “Fate” on the global charts, Ryan Coogler is on his way to becoming the black director with the biggest domestic hit

Biggest Opening By A Film With A Black Lead Character: Among the top 25 openings of all-time, only two films have black lead characters: “Furious 7” with Dwayne Johnson and “Suicide Squad” with Will Smith. Now “Black Panther,” with its ten black actors led by Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, joins them on that list.
