Black Panther ticket sales on Fandango already setting records

If presale tickets are any indication, Marvel's latest superhero film could be in for a big opening.

A Fandango poll showed that Black Panther is the second most anticipated 2018 movie. Deadpool now holds that distinction with $132.4 million.

Rowanda reportedly appears in Avengers: Infinity War too.

Black Panther set records this morning, selling more advance tickets in its first 24 hours than any previous Marvel Studios movie, edging out Captain America: Civil War for the crown. Additional cast members include Letitia Wright ("Urban Hymn", "Glasgow Girls"), Winston Duke ("Person of Interest, "Modern Family"), Florence Kasumba ("Captain America: Civil War", "Emerald City"), Sterling K. Brown ("Whiskey Tango Foxtrot", "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story") and John Kani ("Captain America: Civil War", "Coriolanus")". It's a clever and nearly seamless mix of crime genre entertainment and social commentary, making it an interesting pick as an influence on Black Panther, which Coogler described as a "bit of an espionage thriller" combined with a "family drama".
