Ant-Man and the Wasp Box Office

It should come as no surprise that Ant-Man and the Wasp topped the box office this weekend, and that it’s another sequel that has surpassed its predecessor in the opening weekend.

Ant-Man and the Wasp raked in $76 million at the domestic box office, coming in under the projections that had it making more than Doctor Strange‘s opening weekend of $85 million. It’s also the lowest opening for a Marvel Studios sequel, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since the original opened to $57.2 million back in 2015.  Read More »

When a Marvel Studios movie is set to hit theaters, we often times get the opportunity to sit down in a room with the man responsible for it all and ask him anything we want about that film and the future of the company. With Ant-Man and The Wasp, it was strangely different than past conversations with Kevin Feige, as the whole Marvel Universe is in flux following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and this Ant-Man sequel is one of the most standalone stories Marvel has created to date. There is a reason Marvel isn’t having a presentation at Comic-Con this year – there isn’t much to reveal at this time as it all hinges on the next couple films.

Our conversation began with us talking about Taika Waititi‘s production office decor of E.T., and continued on through Star Wars rumors, the Quantum Realm, de-aging technology and the idea of using it for prequels, how Marvel planned Ant-Man and the Wasp alongside Infinity War, the possibility of Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: Far From Home, how they plan on marketing the Spider-Man sequel before the release of Avengers 4, how involved with Feige be with the Disney Streaming service, designing sets with theme park adaptations in mind, playing with audiences expectations, and how they shot that after credits scene.
