Ant-Man 3's Disney
Plus Streaming Date Changes Marvel.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania's Disney+ release date surpassed Marvel Studios' record, suggesting a big strategy shift.
Ant-Man 3's Disney+ release is the longest wait for an MCU film since the service started.
Since May 2022's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, these theatrical-to-streaming windows have steadily increased.
Doctor Strange 2 grossed $955 million, making it Phase 4's second-highest-grossing film behind Spider-Man:
No Way Home. It may have grossed more if it and previous MCU titles had remained cinema exclusives.
Ant-Man and the Wasp's Disney+ release, 89 days after its theatrical debut, may be due to Quantumania.
Doctor Strange 2 entered Disney+ 47 days after it hit theaters, the shortest window of any movie, followed by Ant-Man 3 at 89 days and Black Panther 2 at 80 days.
Black Panther 2 grossed $22 million domestically in the 33 days it was theatrically exclusive, compared to $4 million for Multiverse of Madness after it came to Disney+.
