Stephen Hawking figured that Black Holes bled into different dimensions - creating 'parallel universes'.
String theory and quantum physics speak of dimensions intersecting eachother like bubbles. When two bubbles meet, they can combine or even tunnel into one another.
If two universes or quantum realities meet, they could be producing black holes.
Therefore, black holes may be a connection between this universe and others.
So no, the universe itself is not a black hole, but the big bang did not come from 'nowhere' Think about it.

Im sorry but Stephen Hawking has been wrong for the past 30 years. He even admits being wrong about black holes.
Hawking realised that the Universe was, in effect, a black hole in reverse; instead of matter being crushed into a singularity, the Universe began when a singularity expanded to form everything we see around us today - from stars to planets to people.
