With all of this said, let's hope Black Panther is not a once every ten years event. The film's $40.2 million haul on Monday was the biggest Monday at the US box office ever. With those numbers, Black Panther would have the second largest second weekend ever with a domestic total of $410 million by the end of Sunday.

Almost 90 percent of moviegoers said they would definitely recommend "Black Panther", according to surveys conducted by comScore and Screen Engine. Share your thoughts below!

The Zimbabwean actress is part of an all-star cast in the blockbuster superhero movie, which has since smashed the United States box office with US$192 million in its opening weekend.

Now in theaters, director Ryan Coogler's Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa /Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Winston Duke as M'Baku, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue.

While Black Panther does an excellent job of explaining what the virtually indestructible and rare metal is and where it came from, vibranium has already appeared in several Marvel movies, Notably Avengers: Age of Ultron, where the evil android solicited some vibranium stolen from Wakanda.which ended up becoming the body of the synthetic Avenger, the Vision.

Black Panther is an integral part of Marvel Comics and it was only a matter of time before he debuted in on the big screen. Deadpool and Captain America: "Civil War each fell 53%, and Avengers: "Age of Ultron declined by 52%". After all, it's being released way out of summer blockbuster season, it stars a relatively obscure C-list superhero and goes against the received wisdom that white audiences just won't turn up to see a film starring a predominantly black cast.
