  • Black Panther is ruling Wakanda the global box office and as of Tuesday he is also the king of Twitter

The most-talked-about characters from Black Panther are Chadwick Boseman's titular hero, Michael B. Jordan's antagonist Erik Killmonger, and Letitia Wright's brilliant Shuri. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now down to third.

With hashtags like #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe and #WakandaCameToSlay, the conversations it's sparked, the appreciation for director Ryan Coogler and the cast, and the sheer enthusiasm people have had for Black Panther, fans have been talking about the movie for months.

Now, according to the Associated Press, Black Panther has pawed its way into another historical moment, becoming the most tweeted about movie ever.

In addition to its box office and social media success, Black Panther also holds a 97% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and as you'd expect, a sequel has been confirmed, with early story plans already in place. As highlighted in the British daily, Black Panther is the seventh biggest film of all time in the U.S and has finished at the top for five weekends in a row.

Twitter released a statement with statistics revealing that Black Panther has generated over 35-million tweets.

Black Panther fans will be getting another dose of Wakanda in Marvels next comic blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War.

This is the first (but likely not the last) of Marvel's films directed by an African-American and marks the largest opening for an African-American director ever.
