Black Panther has beaten fellow Disney blockbusters Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars:The Last Jedi to claim the throne, with over 35 million tweets. Meanwhile, Marvel officials are planning to further cash in on the Black Panther craze by launching a comic book spin-off for the Dora Milaje, the all-female, shaven, tattooed army for the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
The most popular characters that are being talked about on Twitter are the King of Wakanda himself, Black Panther a.k.a. King T'Challa, the villain that we can't seem to hate, Erik Killmonger (hi, Michael B. Jordan) and the spunky princess, Shuri. The tweet said "Black Panther The Album 2/9" and it got retweeted 245, 000 times. Furthermore, the most retweeted posts about the film are Kendrick Lamar's unveiling of the soundtrack list, a video of children attempting to buy tickets using the classic trench coat disguise, and former First Lady Michelle Obama's tweet in which she congratulated the cast and praised the film. As highlighted in the British daily, Black Panther is the seventh biggest film of all time in the U.S and has finished at the top for five weekends in a row. In Avengers: Infinity War, actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black Panther, will be making an appearance in the much-anticipated film, which will arrive in theaters in April. The film took just 26 days to reach the $1 billion mark while maintaining its top position.
