Tweets were led with the most used hashtags #BlackPanther, #Wakanda and #WakandaForever, while the most mentioned characters have been Black Panther himself along with villain Killmonger and Shuri.

Twitter said Tuesday that Ryan Coogler's box-office smash has been tweeted about more than 35 million times.

But let's keep the focus on the king: Black Panther is the most tweeted-about movie ever. The character was the first superhero of African descent to be featured in mainstream American comics, arriving years before Falcon (1969), Luke Cage (1972), and Blade (1973). This past weekend, Black Panther became the first film since Avatar (2009) to top the North America box office for five straight weekends.

Since then, "Black Panther" has gone on to take on the global box office by storm.

The global collections for Black Panther now stand tall at around $1.182.5 billion and trade analysts are now even predicting that it will break 2013's Iron Man 3's record of being the highest grossing single-superhero flick in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film also holds a 97% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the best-reviewed comic book films in history.
