Well, despite the new release of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Black Panther has been affected but still shown an upward graph at the box office.

In two weeks of release, "Black Panther" has grossed $400 million domestically and $704 million worldwide.

Unsurprisingly, those second-weekend numbers come with their own set of records.

Globally, Black Panther is already the No. 10 highest grossing title ever for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, passing the all-time sales of both Doctor Strange and Ant-Man.

What's more, only "The Force Awakens" has enjoyed a better second weekend than "Black Panther". Early word was that Captain Marvel would be the anchor, but given Black Panther's success should Marvel make him the new Captain America? It seems to be just a matter of time before the film surpasses the $1 billion mark. And visually, it appears that the director had a chance to give Black Panther his classic cape at some point - but at some point decided against it.
