According to online ticket vendor Fandango, Black Panther ticket sales surpassed those of Captain America: Civil War in the first 24 hours.

With the sales and box office tracking, one thing we can assume is that Black Panther will at least be Marvel Studios' 18 consecutive #1 opening.

However, it should be noted that a Fandango survey of more than 8,000 users ranked Black Panther as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, falling second to Avengers: Infinity War.
