*Yes, we’ve got news of Robin Thicke becoming a new daddy with girlfriend April Love Geary.

But FIRST …

Here’s the bottom line. “Black Panther” isn’t done setting records. According to Forbes, the Ryan Coogler directed film from Marvel earned $108 million on its second Fri-Sun outing, a drop of just 46% from last weekend’s record-crushing $202m Fri-Sun opening.

In terms of raw dollars, it is the second-biggest second weekend gross of all time between Universal/Comast Corp.’s Jurassic World ($106.5m) and Lucasfilm’s The Force Awakens ($149m). It has now earned $400m in ten days of release, which makes it the second-fastest grosser of all time (for now) behind only Jurassic World ($404m) and The Force Awakens ($540m).

Even if you adjust for inflation, it’s still only behind Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.’s The Dark Knight, Marvel’s The Avengers, Jurassic World and The Force Awakens among ten-day domestic totals.

The Forbes article also adds this nugget:

“With Japan and China still on tap, Ryan Coogler’s MCU action drama has already topped $300m overseas for a $704m global total. It should be just over/under $900m worldwide by the end of next weekend.”

The bottom line is that “Panther” has already flown past “Man of Steel,” clawed “Logan” and outdone “Justice League.” Now, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($714m) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” ($709m) is well within its sights. Here’s the reality: “Black Panther” is well on its way to being the biggest solo superhero origin story/non-sequel ever. That is if it can get past “The Dark Knight” ($1 billion), “The Dark Knight Rises” ($1.1b) and “Iron Man 3” ($1.2b) to become Earth’s mightiest hero.
