According to Variety, the Ryan Coogler film is the highest, first-week grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in their history, bringing in $292 million in North America.
Variety also reports, “Disney noted on Friday that Marvel comparative titles have declined on average of 53% domestically, with the exception of The Avengers, which only dropped 45%. Applying those drop-offs to Black Panther, which opened with a $202 million Friday-Sunday, would indicate a second weekend somewhere in the $83 million to $95 million range.
