The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe looks to continue to roll on, as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is projected to make $120 million in its four-day opening weekend.
According to Deadline in a recent report, Quantumania‘s tracking looks to put it in the top three openings for the Presidents Day weekend, slotting in behind Black Panther in 2018 ($242.1 million) and 2016’s Deadpool ($152.1 million).
The third Ant-Man entry is projected to make so much, in part, to its importance in the overall MCU. The film is not only set to kick off Phase 5 of the MCU but also set to formally introduce the next new “big bad” of the comic book film universe, Kang the Conqueror (played by Jonathan Majors).
Deadline’s report also mentions that the 3-day start for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which is tracking at $100-105 million, is also a steady leap up from the past two Ant-Man films. The first film in 2015 made $52.7 million in its first three days, while 2017’s Ant-Man and the Wasp earned $75.8 million.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is once again being directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay written by Jeff Loveness.
