Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is now just weeks away from kickstarting Marvel’s ambitious phase 5 and the early box-office predictions of the movie seem promising. Even though Ant-Man as a character may not be the biggest name in the Marvel roster but the threequel sure does have the caliber to outshine its previous movies and bring Marvel back to its glory.

Early predictions of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania appears promising

After an experimental phase 4, which mostly introduced new characters in the Marvel universe, it seems that the beginning of phase 5 might bring the glory back to the studios. With weeks away from its release, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is expected to have the biggest box-office opening in comparison to its predecessors.

Fans are anticipating the beginning of Kang The Conqueror’s chapter in the multiverse saga of MCU, which will begin on 17th February. Following the last few years of underwhelming releases from the studio, it’s understandable why the fanbase is eager about the upcoming movie, which can once again shape the tides of the MCU in the correct direction.

According to projections by Box office Pro, the movie is estimated to gross a total of $96,000,000 – $131,000,000 in its opening weekend and a total domestic box office prediction of $249,000,000 – $347,000,000. Even though the Ant-Man franchise hasn’t been the biggest box-office giant for the studio, considering the stakes attached to the movie, it’s reasonable that it has the caliber to be the biggest box-office success in the Ant-Man franchise.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania may mark the biggest adventure for Scott Lang

Fans are tuning in for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania to kickstart the multiverse saga of the MCU. Considering its magnitude in comparison with the previous Ant-Man movies, it may become one of the most important movies in the Phase 5 catalog.

Although Scott Lang hasn’t been the frontline hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his franchise isn’t the big box-office juggernaut like some rest of the Marvel heroes. But it may soon change, as the Ant-Man threequel will not only mark the beginning of the multiverse saga but may also be the biggest adventure of the pint-sized Marvel hero.

And the fans who have been fatigued by Marvel’s declining quality over the past 2 years, will finally hope that the studio will hit the ball out of the park with the first entry in the multiverse saga.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will hit theatres on 17 February 2023.
