Quite evidently, the film is doing better with every passing day. Earlier, it was pitted against Áiyaary but now one can see who the clear winner is. Unlike Aiyaary, it was a rage among the film critics as well. It has notably become Marvel's best-reviewed film so far, with a humungous rating of 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
'Black Panther' stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o as leads and is directed by Ryan Coogler. As per a report published in The Times, 'Black Panther' is the highest-grossing film ever by a black director.
