But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king-and Black Panther-is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

Tickets for Marvel's Black Panther are in so much demand that even one of the film's stars, Oscar victor Lupita Nyong'o, had trouble buying any.

According to a recent Fandango poll, "Black Panther" was the second most popular 2018 film on the ticket-selling platform behind the spring's "Avengers" flick.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that advanced ticket sales for Black Panther are beating those of 2016's Marvel hero mash-up movie Captain America: Civil War, indicating that the film will make major waves at the box office come February.

There may be a new king atop Marvel's movie empire. Though presales have been great, it remains to be seen if Black Panther will repeat Civil War's $179 million opening.

Industry estimates do not believe at this point in time that Black Panther will emulate Civil War's opening despite the strong.

Black Panther now has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users. 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. Most recently, it's been announced that Kendrick Lamar and TDE are producing the film's soundtrack with the soundtrack's title song, "All the Stars", out now.

"Black Panther" also brings together an assemble cast including Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and Forest Whitaker.
