Much like any other superhero movie, we know to expect extravagant fight scenes, special effects, killer costumes and whole invented worlds—which, in financial terms, usually equates to rather large budgets.

So how much did ‘Black Panther’ cost to make?

Black Panther cost a staggering $200 million to make—and that figure does not include marketing and advertising costs.

Though that may seem like an exponential amount of money, the price tag isn't too surprising in the big scheme of things. A whole futuristic African nation had to be generated out of thin air—including spaceships, skyscrapers and a whole cast's worth of amazing costumes.

The president of Marvel Studios spoke out about the film's costs, explaining that he hopes filmgoers notice the extra effort they've put in.

But how much do the Black Panther costs compare to other Marvel movies? Well, the film cost more to make than Iron Man (made in 2008) for $186 million, but less than Captain America: Civil War (made in 2016) for $225 million.
