Marvel’s most recent cinematic outing is still raking in the dough. “Black Panther,” which came out in mid-February, just surpassed “Titanic,” once the highest grossing movie of all time, at the box office, according to Vanity Fair.

“Black Panther” has set several box office records already. The film had five weekends at number one, setting the record for money grossed by movies released in both the month of February and the entire season of winter as a whole, according to Box Office Mojo.

The movie’s continued popularity is no surprise. Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead T’Challa, just hosted “Saturday Night Live” Saturday, where he played the character in a recurring Black Jeopardy sketch.

Domestically, “Black Panther” is only behind “Avatar” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for biggest box office pulls in the U.S. The movie is also the tenth highest grossing worldwide, and, when adjusted for inflation, it is the 34th highest grossing of all time.

It’s only a matter of time before T’Challa makes the news again when “Avengers: Infinity War” takes a run at these records on April 27.
