Black Panther fans are so excited for the movie, not even the cast can get tickets!

Lupita Nyong'o, who stars in the upcoming movie as Wakandan operative Nakia, took to Twitter on Wednesday, to reveal that a mere 15 minutes after tickets for the Marvel film went on sale on Monday, opening night showtimes were already selling out. 

"I kid you not, 15 minutes later, I was trying to purchase tickets, and they are sold out,” Nyong’o told her followers. “Sold out!”

According to Fandango, in the first 24 hours of pre-sales, Black Panther became the new best-selling Marvel movie, beating out Captain America: Civil War. Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, hits theaters on Feb. 16.
