“Avengers: Infinity War” is Crushing “Black Panther” in Ticket Presales


“Black Panther” was a box office phenomenon…but it looks like it’s about to be crushed under the heels of “Avengers: Infinity War”.

With two weeks to go before it opens, the new “Avengers” is selling twice as many tickets as “Black Panther” was at this point.  It’s also selling more tickets than the last seven Marvel movies combined…

Those seven are “Black Panther”, “Thor: Ragnarok”, “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2”, “Doctor Strange”, “Captain America: Civil War”, and “Ant-Man”.

Of course, basically every character from all those movies is in the new “Avengers”…so they’re kind of helping it overtake their own films.

“Infinity War” is expected to surpass $200 million in its opening weekend.  Only five movies have done that so far:  “Black Panther”, the original “Avengers”, “Jurassic World”, and the new “Star Wars” flicks, “The Last Jedi” and “The Force Awakens”.

“Black Panther” is currently the #1 superhero movie in America, with $667 million.  But it sounds like that record may not hold.
