'Black Panther' Sets Marvel Pre-Sales Record for First 24 Hours

Nyong'o - who plays Nakia, T'Challa's undercover operative within the Dora Milaje - took to social media to explain how tickets had gone on sale on Monday night, but when she went to purchase them, she wasn't able to. Viewing figures for "Black Panther's" first trailer last summer were so high, the teaser immediately became one of the three most-watched Marvel trailers in its first 24 hours. But there's also been a whole lot of grass-roots support for "Black Panther".

Another compelling revelation: the all-female Dora Milaje, the secret service that swears allegiance to the king (not that T'Challa can't handle most threats on his own) fights with a kind of collective consciousness.

Alongside Boseman, the movie features a star-studded cast which includes; Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and the list goes on. The film is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers; Coogler and Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is poised to strike theaters on February 16, and there's a razor-sharp interest in Marvel's first black superhero, and his debut solo shot on the silver screen. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
