Superhero film 'Black Panther' becomes most tweeted about movie of all time

Share

The social media network confirmed that Black Panther was tweeted about more than 35 million times. As other films have come and gone in theaters, Black Panther has proven that it has plenty of staying power, even as promotion for Avengers: Infinity War (featuring a team-up of dozens of Marvel heroes) gears up. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now down to third. So far the film has made more than $1.1 billion worldwide.

The 2018 blockbuster film "Black Panther" has broken yet another record - and no, it's not a box office record, but a Twitter record - the most tweeted about movie to date. Rapper Kendrick Lamar and Michelle Obama were pivotal supporters in spreading the message on Twitter.

"Black Panther" continues to be a major topic of conversation. Lamar shared a copy of the list of songs in the Black Panther album on January 31.

With the two getting back in action in Avengers: Infinity War , their relationship is clearly going to continue. The Russo Brothers told Screen Rant Ant-Man and the Wasp has plot elements that "stitch in" to Infinity War .

Twitter also released more data, like who the most tweeted-about character was (Killmonger and Shuri, in addition to T'Challa), and what the most-tweeted hashtags were (fire, black heart and crown). For Lamar, that tweet involved plugging his own official Black Panther soundtrack, which recorded more than 230,000 retweets alone.

Marvel has released its latest trailer for the highly-anticipated release of Avengers: Infinity War next month.

The film, which is Marvel's first to be directed by an African-American, took only 26 days for to crack United States dollars 1 billion at the global box office.
