Wow, that did it. With a dry right, Creed 3 – Rocky’s Legacy (read our film review here) sends Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania dry to the ground in the German cinema charts. That was a brief battle for the top spot for the week’s highest grossing film. At least that’s what the first estimates say. According to this, the ant man from Marvel came in third place. What’s going on there?
Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: A flop at the box office?
The 31st feature-length film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe staggers through the box office ring. The special effects look lousy, there are boos in the cinema hall and even in the USA it already seems to be running out of air. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania turns out to be weaker Start of phase 5 of the MCU. Poor reviews rained down on the blockbuster like painful jabs and after just the first weekend at the box office, his condition was noticeably gone.
Compared to Creed 3 – Rocky’s Legacy, the Avenger’s third solo adventure looks like a third-rate carnival boxer. According to current forecasts, the ninth film in the Rocky series will be around 275,000 cinema fans lure them into the cinemas. Behind joins with sun and concrete the novel adaptation of the comedian known for his punchlines Felix Lobrecht with 200,000 spectators.
And only then rises Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania relegated to 3rd place 100,000 tickets sold on the lowest podium of the podium. Whether the new superhero film in Germany even crossed the line from 1 million moviegoers will crack is currently extremely questionable.
A pretty disappointing result. Is the audience simply oversaturated? Disney seems to have read the signs of the times and pushed back one of the upcoming MCU films a few months. Also, when it comes to series on Disney Plus, you will step on the brakes in the future. More quality than quantity would certainly be appropriate at Marvel at the moment.
