"Ant-Man and the Wasp" has the tough job of following "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War" at the 2018 box office. The "Ant-Man" sequel is the 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's not expected to be one of the major blockbusters of the franchise. That said, early tracking suggests "Ant-Man and the Wasp" will substantially outpace the first movie in its opening weekend. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Paul Rudd/Evangeline Lilly sequel looks like it will make about $75 million at the domestic box office over the July 6-8 opening weekend. "Ant-Man" opened to just under $58 million in 2015, for a total domestic box office intake of $180.2 million, plus just under $340 million overseas for a global total of $519.3 million. Although it's good to see the sequel will apparently top the original, TheWrap noted that it would make "Ant-Man and the Wasp" the first Marvel Studios movie since "Doctor Strange" opened to $85M to post a domestic opening below $100 million. That said, if "Ant-Man and the Wasp" gets a strong reaction from fans -- and jumps ahead in time to include big hints on what's ahead in "Captain Marvel" and "Avengers 4" -- it could be a giant surprise at the box office.
