Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania opened with a strong box office debut of over $100 million in its first weekend. However, Quantumania suffered a significant drop in its second weekend, raising concerns among industry insiders about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A Marvel Studios insider, who preferred to remain anonymous, shared his thoughts on the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania box office drop to Deadline. “Marvel takes something away from [every] movie, including Black Panther, including Avengers. I can say we’re incredibly proud of the film. Jonathan Majors does a fantastic job as Kang. It’s the movie we wanted to make. Box office is what it is. But it’s not going to stop people from going back to the theaters,” the insider told the trade.
Fans of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania can look forward to more adventures featuring Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne, as the two are expected to return to the MCU. The movie also features the next big MCU villain, known as Kang the Conqueror. Played by rising star Jonathan Majors, Kang is sure to be a major player in the MCU and fans can’t wait to see how his story will unfold.
