Black Panther pre-sale tickets break Marvel Cinematic Universe record

Share

One of the film's stars, Lupita Nyong'o, said on Twitter she tried to buy tickets and opening night showtimes were already sold out.

It sounds insane, considering Black Panther isn't one of the handful of main characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (by main we mean Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk).

Pre-sales for director Ryan Coogler's film outpaced those of 2016's Captain America: Civil War the first 24 hours of release, to become the bestselling entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

T'Challa, who first appeared in Captain America: Civil War, inherited the throne during that movie's events when his father, King T'Chaka, was killed.

Tickets for Black Panther officially went on sale earlier this week for the highly-anticipated film that will be released worldwide on February 16. Since then, fans and the black community at large have been rooting for the film, which is Marvel's first full-length superhero movie with a almost all-black cast.

Tickets for Marvel's Black Panther are selling like hotcakes-or, in more era-appropriate lingo, flying into Fandango carts fast enough to make your head spin and your eyes bulge. "Yesterday, around 10:30, the Black Panther tickets went on sale, and I put it out on my social media, I was so excited".

Fredrick Joseph has started a GoFundMe campaign so kids in Harlem, New York, can go see the movie when it comes out next month. The flick is set to hit theatres on February 16. If audiences can fall in love with a talking raccoon and tree, I think it's safe to say that a superhero African king isn't that much harder to sell.

"Black Panther" tickets are hard to come buy, even for the movie's stars.

The latest promo is a featurette called "Good to Be King", which shines a spotlight on the titular character, T'Challa, and his journey to becoming the ruler of the fictional country of Wakanda.
