Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis tweeted Wednesday morning the film already has more advance ticket sales than any other Marvel film in Fandango's history.

Black Panther tickets went on sale Monday night, and now Fandango reports it is already beating Captain America: Civil War and is now their best-selling MCU title in the first 24 hours of presales. Currently, box office tracking has Black Panther doing between $80 and $85 million, although some think it has an outside shot at $100 million.

The film opens on February 16.

Director Ryan Coogler spoke about the film, influences and offered up an interesting label: "espionage thriller".

As different surveys used different methodologies, the 68.9% "conversion rate" has a 16% margin of error (60.9% to 76.9%).

Black Panther benefits from not being restricted by an R-rating, and having an even more promising built-in audience than any previous Marvel movies. Although advanced ticket sales are not always a sign of box office success, Civil War did go on to a $179.1 million opening weekend and a $1.15 billion total haul, hinting that Black Panther could have big bucks in its sights.

The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

While the overall timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be a little muddled, that doesn't have anything to do with Black Panther, or the time in which it takes place.

Duggal feels the "character has been popular amongst the fans since his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and his extended role in the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War has only added to the excitement". When Wakanda finds herself beset by two enemies intent on the nation's downfall, Black Panther must use his new suit and heightened strength, speed and senses to defend Wakanda and the rest of the world.
