Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is out here doing things other movie companies could only dream of. The must-watch film has dominated the box office for five straight weeks making it the latest blockbuster to do so in almost a decade.

According to reports, the last film to slay like Black Panther was 2009’s Avatar.

The superhero film from Walt Disney Co.’s DIS, Marvel Studios topped the domestic box office for a fifth straight week, becoming the first movie to do so since “Avatar” in 2009. Winning the box office crown for five weeks in a row is exceedingly rare — before “Avatar,” the last movie to do so was “The Sixth Sense” in 1999. “Black Panther” took in $27 million in weekend ticket sales, pushing its domestic gross to $605.4 million, and its international haul to about $1.2 billion.

Earlier this month, Black Panther reached historic territory after hitting the $1 billion global box office milestone.

The Ryan Coogler tentpole is the 33rd movie to gross $1 billion. It’s the 16th Disney film to reach this milestone, and the fifth Marvel film to do so — joining the ranks of “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3,” and “Captain America: Civil War.” “Black Panther” has grossed $521 million domestically, making it the ninth-highest release of all time. In its fourth weekend, “Black Panther” is heading for a $40 million-plus weekend, which would make it the No. 2 superhero release of all time over “The Dark Knight’s” $535 million. (Variety)

“Nothing specific to reveal, other than to say we absolutely will do that. One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two. There have been plenty of those conversations as we were putting together the first Black Panther. We have ideas and a pretty solid direction on where we want to head with the second one.
