Marvel’s latest block buster, The “Black Panther” has surpassed $1 billion at the global box office, thereby challenging industry norms about films with black casts. Forbes reports that the Marvel blockbuster passed the major benchmark on Friday March 9th.

The film is now the United States’ ninth domestically highest-grossing film of all time and had the second-largest four-day domestic opening weekend.

“Black Panther” brought in $242 million in the U.S. over Presidents Day weekend, behind the $288 million “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” made when it opened in 2015.
