El fenómeno de “Black Panther”, la película de Marvel con un reparto formado casi al completo por actores negros, superó la marca de los 1.000 millones de dólares recaudados en todo el mundo.

Según los datos del portal especializado Box Office Mojo, “Black Panther” alcanzó 531 millones de dólares de recaudación en EE.UU. y otros 500 millones a nivel internacional, impulsados por su reciente estreno en China.

Se situó así como la novena película más taquillera de la historia en el mercado estadounidense.

En el filme, dirigido por Ryan Coogler y alabado por su diversidad delante y detrás de la cámara, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), tras la muerte de su padre, el rey de la ficticia Wakanda, regresa a su hogar, una nación africana aislada del mundo pero con un tremendo potencial tecnológico.

The film, which stars British actors Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright and Martin Freeman, is the fifth in Disney’s Marvel Universe to reach the milestone.

The total, which is £794 million in sterling, is based on Disney’s estimate of ticket sales and comes on the 26th day of its release.

Earlier this week UK box office figures revealed Black Panther was out-performing superhero flicks Iron Man, Thor and Captain America after taking £35.4 million in its first three weeks.

Only two other Marvel films had taken more money in the UK at this point in their release: 2015’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron, £40.4 million, and 2012’s The Avengers, which made £40.3 million.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film also stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.

It is the first superhero film with a predominantly black cast, and has been praised by Michelle Obama for its inclusivity.

Last week The Sun Online reported how the flick was inspired by a “real life, all women, army in Africa”.

The all-female military regiment, created by King Houegbadja in the 19th century, were chosen for their incredible ability to fight men.

Often recruited as virgin teenagers, the fierce women would live in the royal palace in what was then the kingdom of Dahomey – now known as the modern day Republic of Benin.
