Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania took in $104 million over three days at the domestic box office, the largest opening for the Ant-Man series.
This easily surpassed the $75 million debut of 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp and the $57 million opening of 2015’s Ant-Man.
It was, however, lower than Marvel’s most recent few box office debuts, including Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s $181 million, Thor: Love and Thunder’s $144 million, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ $187 million.
Still, this was a solid debut that likely improved upon the previous Ant-Man films because Quantumania was advertised as a crucial entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.
Jonathan Majors’ villain, Kang the Conqueror, is expected to be the next “big bad” of the shared universe similar to Thanos.
So Quantumania provides crucial setup for Marvel’s next major crossover event, 2025’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and likely its sequel, 2026’s Avengers: Secret Wars.
