Marvel's smallest franchise is having a big opening weekend.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania took in $104 million over three days at the domestic box office, the largest opening for the Ant-Man series. This easily surpassed the $75 million debut of 2018's Ant-Man and the Wasp and the $57 million opening of 2015's Ant-Man. It was, however, lower than Marvel's most recent few box office debuts, including Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's $181 million, Thor: Love and Thunder's $144 million, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' $187 million.
