Fandango said a survey of more than 8,000 moviegoers showed that "Black Panther" was voted as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, ranking second to Disney-Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", which includes numerous "Black Panther" characters, and Boseman was voted as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie.

According to the survey, Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead role, is the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie.

In the first 24 hours since the tickets have been available on Fandango, launching during the telecast of college football's National Championship game, Black Panther has pre-sold more tickets than any film in Marvel Studios history. Current estimates have "Black Panther" bringing in just around $85 million on its opening weekend on Feb. 16, still far below "Deadpool's" February record of $132.4 million. Disney, which owns Marvel, has been promoting the movie heavily.
