Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania premiered in theaters last Friday. The film, which stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Jonathan Majors, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglas, earned an estimated $144 million in domestic box office sales — one of the best debut of any of Marvel’s three Ant-Man movies thus far.
The inaugural film in “Phase Five” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the thirty first film within the franchise as an entire, has a whole lot of speculation, debate, and questions not only regarding the the film’s multiversal genius antagonist Kang the Conqueror (played by Jonathan Majors), but regarding the long run of the MCU as an entire.
When does Ant-Man 3 come to Disney Plus?
One in all the largest questions on the minds of MCU fans is when home audiences can expect to see Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania come to streaming on Disney Plus. While the definitive streaming premiere date for Scott Lang’s latest subatomic adventure is currently suspended in a state of quantum superpositional flux — directly known to a select few inside Disney, though presently unknown to those outside of Disney — we will enterprise a reasonably decent guess as to when the film will arrive on Disney Plus based on the previous release windows of other recent Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
As you’re likely already aware, Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced in August 2021 that 2021’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the twenty fifth entry within the Marvel Cinematic Universe starring Simu Liu, wouldn’t receive a same-day streaming debut on Disney Plus Premier Access like its predecessor, 2021’s Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson. As a substitute, Chapek announced that the film would arrive on Disney Plus 45 days after its theatrical debut. This didn’t exactly pan out — as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings got here to Disney Plus on Nov. 12, 2022, 70 days (2 months and 9 days) following its theatrical premiere.
Since then, every subsequent entry within the MCU (apart from 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home) has followed this same approximate pattern, with each film on average arriving on Disney Plus roughly two and a half months after its theatrical premiere. Eternals got here to Disney Plus on Jan. 12, 2022, 68 days after its 2021 theatrical debut; 2022’s Doctor Strange within the Multiverse of Madness got here to Disney Plus on June 22, 2022, 47 days after its theatrical debut; 2022’s Thor: Love and Thunder got here to Disney Plus on Sept. 8, 2022, 62 days after its theatrical debut; and 2022’s Black Panther: Wakanda Ceaselessly got here to Disney Plus on Feb. 1, 2023, 82 days after its theatrical debut.
With these all dates in mind, we will reliably guess that Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will likely come to streaming on Disney Plus sometime either in late April or early May of this yr, with essentially the most probable release window being somewhere between April 1 and May 6, 2023.
We’ll update this post when we’ve a confirmed streaming debut date for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
