Brooklyn theatergoers out to see a showing of “Black Panther” got more than the price of admission when a man dressed as the Marvel superhero found his girlfriend in the audience and proposed.

Her answer, of course, was yes because, well, how could she say no to that?

Theater patrons who witnessed the event Friday night caught the moment – and the cheering that followed — and shared it on social media. “So this couple just got engaged in my #BlackPanther viewing!” tweeted a theatergoer.

Even the Alamo Drafthouse Theater got in on the fun and tweeted, “Step up your game, gentlemen.” The groom-to-be didn’t even have tickets for the movie but knew his fiance would be there. He left shortly thereafter.

He should have bought a ticket and stuck around to watch it the with his new fiance because the audiences seem to love it – it’s the first superhero movie since “Avengers” to get an A+ in CinemaScore polls.

And, based on its opening two days, it looks like it’s on track to set box office records, as well. Earlier this week, rival studios and analysts told TheWrap that a $200 million four-day opening for “Black Panther” was fully in the realm of possibility.
