The movie has the best presale campaign in the history of Marvel. It's opening in February, once thought to be a dead zone for films, and it's facing very little competition for tentpole dollars.

The women of Wakanda are kicking ass and taking names in this featurette from Marvel's upcoming "Black Panther". But early indications now suggest that Black Panther might be bigger than anyone thought, as Fandango has now announced the film has broken a pre-sale record.

Fandango said a survey of more than 8,000 moviegoers showed that "Black Panther" was voted as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, ranking second to Disney-Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", which includes numerous "Black Panther" characters, and Boseman was voted as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie. The third Captain America film went on to gross over $1.2 billion worldwide.

In SYFY WIRE's exclusive chat with Igle below, he explains why the Black Panther movie could potentially be a seismic shift in the way superhero flicks are perceived in literature, comics, and future films.

The new Marvel movie, Black Panther is making news for plenty of reasons.

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. "'Get your tickets now!'" You might want to circle a date, and soon, because this one will be playing to packed houses for at least its opening weekend.
