Black Panther actress Lupita Nyong'o couldn't get tickets for the film

Black Panther actress Lupita Nyong'o couldn't get tickets for the film

"It's January 9, and yesterday the Black Panther tickets went on sale", Nyong'o said.

Movie ticket site Fandango, has reported that the film has set a record for the most ticket sales for a Marvel film within the first 24 hours, reports The Hollywood Reporter. That predicts huge first-weekend returns for the solo superhero film, as Civil War was stuffed with enough members of the MCU that it basically functioned (artistically and economically) as an Avengers film.

King T'Challa made his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War where he stood with Iron Man as the Avengers did battle amongst each other.

One more reason to look forward to Black Panther is what promises to be an incredible soundtrack, curated by Kendrick Lamar, who collaborated with SZA on the lead single "All of the Stars", which you can listen to below. The forthcoming Marvel film just dethroned 2016's Captain America: Civil War as Fandango's best-selling MCU film in 24 hours after advance tickets went up for sale on Monday night, January 8. Long live the King! Like, there were no seats, and I was unable to buy tickets to see Black Panther on opening night! If that's the case, Black Panther would not only become the highest opening of all-time for a February release, besting Fox/Marvel's R-rated Deadpool ($132.4M), but the best opening before summer. Panther star Chadwick Boseman was also voted by the fans as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie, while co-stars Danai Gurira & Winston Duke were picked among the rising stars of 2018, and Michael B. Jordan as one of 2018's most anticipated screen villains.
