Black Panther, Infinity War, Deadpool 2, and so on. It’s just been a Disney-Marvel summer of movies that are designed to take our minds off of reality of any kind.
Following that schedule, “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” which is not a Jack Lemmon-Shirley MacLaine movie about a stuck up guy and the off limits girl he loves, opened to a big $33.8 million Friday last night and is headed for an $85 million weekend.
Surfing in on the Marvel Universe of movies, this is a big success for Disney since the first “Ant Man” which did not feature The Wasp, had a $57 million opening weekend. The next episode, building on a theme, will be set in Darien, Connecticut.
