According to reports, Marvel Studios anticipated Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would be a big success. The author of MCU: The Reign of Marvel Studios, Joanna Robinson, said that the management of Marvel Studios were caught off guard by the bad response to Quantumania. “Quantumania really shook them because they felt like they had something good,” she stated. “Like they all internally thought everyone’s gonna love this.” She went on to say that Marvel execs realised their views on projects no longer matched what the public thought after Quantumania’s failure. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania scored a 46% on Rotten Tomatoes, indicating a lacklustre reception from reviewers. In comparison to previous MCU movies, the February 2023 release of the movie did not draw a large crowd to theatres. Though it had big-name performers like Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Jonathan Majors, Michelle Pfeiffer, and included a big Bill Murray cameo, Quantumania was the first non-pandemic film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to turn a profit. The film apparently needed to make at least $600 million to break even, even though it took in $476 million at the box office.
Given that Quantumania was the first MCU movie to star Majors’ Kang the Conqueror as the primary enemy, Marvel Studios probably had high expectations for it. Majors will reappear in Loki Season 2 as Kang variation Victor Timely, despite the fact that Scott Lang vanquished Kang at the conclusion of Quantumania. Victor Timely will be a major part in Season 2, according to executive producer Kevin Wright of Loki, even if Majors is now dealing with a domestic abuse lawsuit. He declared, “We’ve always wanted to undertake a Timely project in Loki. We’re really looking forward to how that works into the season, I believe. It has a major role in the programme.” Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, stated that Kang’s enormous menace is the reason Quantumania did not do better, despite the fact that Marvel Studios has been teasing him for years as the MCU’s next great enemy. Hemsworth stated, “The moment, it’s like…Your world is in danger, the entire universe!” in support of his argument that Quantumania ought to have been a more intimate, smaller tale. “Yeah, so it was the last 24 films,” is how it sounds. It needs to become a little more grounded and intimate.”Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
