The hype is real for Marvel’s next MCU movie and now we have the receipts to prove it.
Fandango, the leading and most often only site for buying movie tickets online, has revealed that Black Panther holds the new record for most pre-sale tickets for any Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. The previous record had been held by Captain America: Civil War in May 2016.
Black Panther had the misfortune of being the movie before MCU mega-event Avengers: Infinity War, which made many assume excitement for it would be subdued in Avengers‘ shadow, but it doesn’t seem like that will be the case. You can see the latest trailer for the movie below, which comes out in theaters on February 16.
