"WAKANDA FOREVER!" was the cry heard 'round the world last week, and it looks like we'll be hearing a lot more of it this weekend now that Black Panther is on track to break even more box office records. However, the latest figures suggest that Black Panther could cement itself as the most successful film, not just in Marvel, but in superhero film history.

It's no secret that Black Panther has been a hit with moviegoers but the film has now become a huge success for Marvel, becoming the studio's highest-grossing film ever in its first week. The film made $22 million more than 2012's The Avengers did in its first week, and also made $228 million internationally.

The film reportedly earned $292 million in its first week from the North American box-office, The Avengers took nine days to get to $300 million in comparison.

This definitely looks like an achievable aim for the film as it has yet to open in many global markets, like China.

As disappointing as it may be to know that one of the most well-acted scenes of the movie was axed, Moore also added that it will be a part of Black Panther's extras when the movie's released on DVD at some point in the future. This brings the worldwide total to $520 million. This could however be wildly off as the film has already greatly exceeded its initial estimates.

Official box office estimates are out Sunday. During a recent interview with Empire, Black Panther executive producer Nate Moore discussed a number of key moments that were either written and/or shot but didn't make it into the film and there's one in particular that both he and Coogler fought before agreeing to let go in order to keep Black Panther's pacing tight. If you haven't seen it yet, make sure you do!
