The first 'Ant-Man', released in 2015 and minted over USD 500 million at the global box office. The sequel that released in 2018 earned USD 622 million worldwide.
Meanwhile, the MCU has films like 'Black Widow', 'Thor: Love and Thunder', 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' lined up for releases in the years ahead.
