Previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens was demoted to second place, while Star Wars: The Last Jedi finished in third place.

The most-tweeted hashtags were #BlackPanther, #Wakanda, and #WakandaForever and the most-tweeted film characters being the titular character (Chadwick Boseman) and his sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) and the films antagonist Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).

When Grammy winning rapper Kendrick Lamar tweeted that he would be part of the soundtrack for the superhero blockbuster. Since the box office success, Marvel has chose to reboot the series and stream it on YouTube for free. Countries in Africa are also throwing its support behind Black Panther with $6.5 million in ticket sales in South Africa to $1.77 million of the same in Liberia, Quartz reports.




Marvel has released its latest trailer for the highly-anticipated release of Avengers: Infinity War next month. Therefore, ranking it as the most tweeted about movie ever.

And if you were wondering which Black Panther-related tweet received the most interaction, here they are. Her tweet was well received by fans that it was re-shared 139,647 times upon her posting on February 19.

The article goes on to add that the film's director, Ryan Coogler, had the largest opening weekend ($201.8 million) for an African-American director. The film has grossed to date $600 million in the US alone. Following the undisputed success of Black Panther, a sequel is practically a no-brainer. However, it is quite possible the Marvel movie will be nominated in 2019 for categories like designs and special effects.
