Long live the king. Marvel’s next highly-anticipated movie Black Panther, which isn’t due for theaters until February 16, has already broken an impressive record: It is now the number one presale movie in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

On Wednesday, movie retailer Fandango announced Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, the warrior-king of the African nation Wakanda, broke the presale ticket record within 24 hours of the sale, which began on Monday night, January 8.

To become the new king of the mountain, Black Panther toppled the previous record holder, Captain America: Civil War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Boseman made his debut as T’Challa/Black Panther in that jam-packed superhero movie, as his character was recruited to the side of Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) for the big superhero battle.

Fandango didn’t disclose exact numbers, but Civil War opened to a monstrous $179 million when it was released in theaters in May 2016.

To say Marvel fans are excited for Black Panther is an understatement. Although Black Panther is not a founding Avenger, the character is renowned for being one of the first major black superheroes in comic books. As the Marvel movie franchise has been predominantly white, with few characters of color in supporting roles, many moviegoers are looking to Black Panther to break the mold as a major blockbuster in the era when superhero blockbusters reign supreme.

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966, Black Panther debuted as an uneasy ally to the Fantastic Four in issue #56 of Fantastic Four. Since then, Black Panther starred in several volumes of his own comics, which has seen T’Challa struggle with ruling the most advanced kingdom on Earth while being a superhero. His current series is written by The Atlantic journalist and author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

A prevailing theory about time travel being used in Avengers 4 to defeat Thanos was just deemed a “possibility” by one Marvel director, and yes it totally involves the Quantum Realm.

In an interview published by Huffington Post with Peyton Reed, the Ant-Man and the Wasp director confirmed that the film’s post-credits scene left Scott Lang totally trapped in the Quantum Realm. He doesn’t even have an enlarging Pym Particle disc with him like in the first movie. So with the rest of Team Ant-Man turned to ash by Thanos’ snap, Scott’s only option might be to plunge right into a time vortex.

One MCU actress accidentally dropped a sizable Avengers 4 spoiler over a year ago. Along with each of the original Avengers, Karen Gillan’s Nebula was one of the few MCU characters to survive the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Gillan previously said that Nebula would get a “new BFF” in the movie, but that never happened. What gives?

The Mystery Girl from The Flash Season 4 revealed herself as Iris and Barry’s daughter from the future in the epic finale, but a newly leaked set photo of her superhero costume for Season 5 confirms that she assumes the superhero identity of their granddaughter from the comics, Jenni Ognats. So rather than one-half of the Tornado Twins, Nora is actually XS, and she’s much more like Jenni Ognats than she is Iris and Barry’s daughter, Dawn, in the comics.
