Black Panther Is The Most Tweeted About Movie Ever

Even if you're one of the few people who still hasn't seen Black Panther in theaters, you may have been talking about it.

Twitter announced that Ryan Coogler's Marvel blockbuster has generated more than 35 million tweets, making it the most tweeted about movie of all time. Of course, Twitter history only goes back to 2007. The two most recent record-holders were 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens and last year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

According to Twitter, the most-used Black Panther-related hashtags are #BlackPanther, #WakandaForever and #Wakanda, referencing the African nation where T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) reigns. The most-discussed characters are Black Panther, the villainous Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and the young genius Shuri (Letitia Wright).

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther first appeared in a 1966 issue of Fantastic Four. The character was the first superhero of African descent to be featured in mainstream American comics, arriving years before Falcon (1969), Luke Cage (1972), and Blade (1973). Although Black Panther later appeared on animated series like The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Avengers Assemble, he didn't become a pop culture sensation until Boseman introduced the character on the big screen in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

But Black Panther became a true household name with Coogler's star-studded solo movie, which has dominated the box office since opening on Feb. 16. It had the highest February opening weekend ever and it's on pace to become the highest-grossing solo superhero movie ever after five straight weeks as the top movie on the planet. 

The most retweeted posts about Black Panther include Michelle Obama's praise for the film, Kendrick Lamar's reveal of the soundtrack tracklist he curated, and a video of kids trying to buy movie tickets using an elaborate disguise. Take a look below.
