There is simply no stopping Marvel.
Ever since the studio launched its shared cinematic universe with 2008's Iron Man, its movies have broken records left and right, from 2012's The Avengers to this year's Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Now, the streak simply keeps on going with Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Marvel's latest film earned the top spot at the weekend box-office with a domestic total of $76 million, and $85 million internationally. With this current total of $161 million, Ant-Man and the Wasp helped the Marvel Cinematic Universe reach over $17 billion worldwide in earnings, through the span of 10 years and 20 films.
And these are numbers that will only keep growing, considering that Ant-Man and the Wasp has only begun its theatrical run. On top of that, it has yet to release in quite a few international markets still, given that the release was delayed in some places because of the World Cup event.
With Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home all coming in 2019, there is simply no telling what numbers Marvel will reach next.
In theaters now, director Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and The Wasp stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park and Walton Goggins.
