It seems the movie studio also has Black Panther to thank for raising fan's interest in Avengers: Infinity War.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 27, 2018, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Josh Brolin. That would make "Black Panther" the biggest superhero movie ever. The Ryan Coogler-directed film took the crown from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given the world a glimpse of its next big blockbuster - "Avengers: Infinity War".

Fandango isn't the only website reporting the newly broken record. Fandango says that out of 1,000 viewers surveyed, 71% had already seen Black Panther, with 60% noting that it "made them more excited to see Avengers: Infinity War". This doesn't mean Black Panther was just surpassed, it was blown out of the water.

What Will Constitute Success and Failure for Avengers: Infinity War? It's now the fourth biggest superhero movie across the globe, shy of "Avengers" with $1.518 billion (5th highest of all time), "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (2015) with $1.405 billion (7th highest of all time) and "Iron Man 3" (2013) with $1.214 billion (13th highest of all time). The previous record holder for the fastest-selling superhero film in the first 24 hours of pre-sales was Black Panther, which continues to lead the box office for a fifth straight week.

Unfortunately for curious fans, exact numbers have not been released regarding the pre-sale tickets.
