Box Office: ‘The Marvels’ Gets Grounded With MCU’s Second-Lowest Opening Day Ever

What a difference four years makes. When “Captain Marvel” hit theaters in March 2019, it landed what was then the seventh-highest domestic opening weekend across Marvel Cinematic Universe entries with $153 million — a colossal figure that only one 2023 release, “Barbie,” has exceeded. Now, several superhero entries later, its new sequel “The Marvels” likely won’t be able to reach even a third of its predecessor’s debut.

The comic book film landed the second-lowest opening day gross ever across the 32 features in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, earning $21.5 million from 4,030 venues. That includes $6.6 million in previews. It barely surpassed 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk,” which holds the record for the MCU’s lowest domestic opening day at $21.46 million, and falls behind series-starter “Ant-Man” ($22.6 million), not adjusted for inflation. If “The Marvels” doesn’t pick up the pace, it will trail behind the opening weekend grosses of both those films to secure a franchise-worst debut.
