Coincidentally the Black Panther was in this movie too.

But it looks like that "risk" is paying off as Fandango is reporting that the film, which is being dumped into the February doldrums to maybe give it an excuse if it flops, has sold more ticket pre-orders than any other Marvel film.

Black Panther is a little over a month away from being released and the excitement for this film is already very high. Civil War kicked off the opening of summer 2016 during the first weekend of May with $179M.

Marvel Studios' Black Panther follows T'Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

Black Panther now has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users.

Black Panther doesn't hit theaters until February 16, but Nyong'o, apparently, won't be seeing it until the 17th. Currently, non-Disney estimates before tracking believe Black Panther will post a $80M-$85M start with a possible shot at $100M-plus.

"Black Panther" also brings together an assemble cast including Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and Forest Whitaker. This will mark the first time that Lamar, whom Rolling Stone dubbed "the greatest rapper alive", will write, produce, perform and curate for a major motion picture.
