New York— Advance ticket sales to Marvel's Black Panther are outpacing all superhero movies on Fandango.

The online ticket service said on Wednesday that Black Panther is currently outselling its previous record-holder for presale, 2016's Batman v Superman. Following gushing early reaction from Monday night's premiere, Ryan Coogler's film is the top daily ticket-seller on Fandango.

Black Panther doesn't open until 16 February, but anticipation is especially strong for the first superhero movie in years starring a black lead character. The premiere in Los Angeles was attended by the film's cast decked in regal African-themed attire.

Analysts are forecasting a President's Day weekend debut for Black Panther of at least $100m in North America.
