The Marvels Is Coming In Around $47 Million For Opening Weekend, Worst MCU Opening Ever

It seems that Disney’s latest Marvel MCU film, “The Marvels” is likely going to come in at around $47 million domestically, making it the lowest MCU opening to date. This was with very little competition at the box office and a run in IMAX theaters.

This puts the film at the bottom of the MCU releases. When you consider inflation too, it’s really below most of the other films.

@NowItsKnown on X (Twitter) compiled the totals into a chart.

By this chart the Marvels performed under DC’s bomb “The Flash” as well as the lowest MCU films.

“The Marvels” at $47 million is the worst and then the following.

  • “The Incredible Hulk” (2008) — $55.4 million (15 years ago, so likely closer to $70+ million adjusted for inflation.)
  • “Ant-Man” (2015) — $57.2 million (8 years ago so likely more than than $60 Million if adjusted for inflation)
  • “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011) — $65.1 million. (12 years ago so likely more than $80 million when adjusted for inflation.)
  • “Thor” (2011) — $65.7 million (12 years ago so likely more than $80 million when adjusted for inflation.)
  • The Eternals” (2021) — $71.3 million. (Only 2 years ago so just slightly higher when adjusted for inflation.)

    **inflation estimates based on a United States inflation calculator**

The Marvels did not fare well globally either.

Globally, even with a release in China, the film is expected to bring in about $63 million for a global total of only $110 million. The film has an estimated budget of $274.8 million before getting a $55 million subsidy from the UK government for filming there. Ending the budget at about $220 million. The film will likely need to do about $650- $700 million to come out ahead if you consider marketing as well.

Disney and Marvel have a problem on their hands. People either don’t care about these characters, which is possible given that Ms. Marvel and Photon required watching Disney+ shows ahead of the film, or they are just tired of MCU films.

A lot of fans said they were done after “Endgame” because that was already a 10-year investment.

Even with Disney CEO, Bob Iger, saying they were going to do fewer, higher quality films moving foward, they still have three MCU films lined up for 2025. Iger talked about Marvel being one of their core brands, but if they keep milking it dry, it’s going to be worthless.
