After trying and failing to secure Black Panther tickets, a bewildered Lupita Nyong'o shared her thrilled surprise and slight irritation via Twitter.

Earlier in the day, Fandango announced that the film had set a record for pre-sale tickets for a Marvel movie during its first 24 hours. Though presales have been great, it remains to be seen if Black Panther will repeat Civil War's $179 million opening.

Black Panther is supposedly Marvel's next risky film in the vein that Guardians of the Galaxy was risky.

King T'Challa made his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War where he stood with Iron Man as the Avengers did battle amongst each other.

The movie ticket sales site said on Wednesday that pre-sale tickets for Black Panther outpaced the first-day advance sales of 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which previously had the best first day of pre-sales for a movie from Walt Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe.
