Marvel's latest blockbuster just overtook the DC competition.

That would be the DCEU blockbuster Wonder Woman, which ended up with an impressive $412 million domestic total and a worldwide box office of $821 million. Black Panther just surpassed the Amazon warrior's domestic total with $421 million and managed to do it in just 12 days (via Exhibitor Relations).

"BLACK PANTHER scored another $10M on Tuesday passing WONDER WOMEN domestically with $421M in 12 days of release. Worldwide, Marvel's latest in now at $748M surpassing the lifetime gross of SUICIDE SQUAD."

Now, Black Panther's current $748 million worldwide total does not beat Wonder Woman's $821 million, but it could pass it relatively soon at its current rate.

As previously mentioned, it also surpassed Suicide Squad's worldwide total of $746 million and is close to overtaking X-Men: Days of Future Past's $747 million. It's not that far behind other films like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 ($755 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man ($757 million), and could very well end up in the realm of Guardians of the Galaxy ($773 million), Star Wars ($775 million), and Deadpool ($783 million).

Back on the domestic front, the movie has already overtaken several other powerhouse Marvel movies, including films like Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, and the original Spider-Man. Currently, the film sits at $412 million domestically, and by the end of its run it could also pass films like The Dark Knight Rises ($448 million), and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($459 million).

Black Panther currently holds an 83.28 on ComicBook.com's composite rankings, putting it at #11 all-time. It also holds a 3.87 out of 5 on the user rankings, placing it in the #20 spot.

Black Panther is in theaters now. Wonder Woman is available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
