Discover The Controversial Rankings Of Ant-man 3 On Disney+ And Its Impact On The Streaming Landscape.
New data reveals the success of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania on Disney+.
Quantumania, the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), made its debut on Disney+ on May 17, following its theatrical release in February. With the longest gap between theatrical and streaming release among MCU films, fans were eager to see how it would perform on the streaming platform.
According to Whip Media’s streaming report, Quantumania ranked as the most-viewed film on any streaming service during the weekend of May 19 to May 21. The report, which utilizes the TV Time app to track views in the United States, highlighted the film’s popularity.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania claimed the top spot in the streaming rankings.
Here is the list of the top 10 most-streamed films during May 19-21:
Disney+ experienced its most successful weekend in months.
The Whip Media report also revealed that the May 19-21 weekend was the most successful for Disney+ in months. This boost in viewership is significant for the platform, particularly after the recent loss of 4 million subscribers.
Previously, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever held a spot in the top 10 films since its debut on Disney+ in February. Other Disney+ films outside the MCU have also seen success, such as Peter Pan & Wendy ranking second when it was released exclusively on the streaming platform.
Paramount+ garnered success with two films cracking the top 10 list.
Paramount+ also had a successful weekend, with two films making it to the top 10 list. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves secured the second spot, offering promise to the studio after the film’s moderate performance at the global box office. The streaming success of the film bodes well for Paramount’s upcoming live-action Dungeons & Dragons series.
Jennifer Lopez’s The Mother topped the chart the previous weekend, and Ben Affleck’s Air claimed the second spot. While both films faced competition from Ant-Man 3 and Dungeons & Dragons, they maintained their positions in the third and fourth spots, respectively.
Additionally, Hulu’s remake of the cult classic White Men Can’t Jump made it to the top 10, despite mixed reviews.
Marvel Studios’ films remain highly popular despite mixed reviews.
Despite mixed reviews, Marvel Studios continues to be one of the most popular entertainment giants worldwide. The availability of films on streaming services shortly after their theatrical releases has prompted many casual moviegoers to wait for home viewing, considering the high cost of theater tickets, especially for families.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, although receiving mediocre or negative reviews, showcases the enduring demand for MCU films. The long presence of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in the top 10 streaming films further highlights Marvel’s staying power.
Overall, the success of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania on Disney+ and the continued popularity of Marvel Studios’ films demonstrate the strong fanbase and demand for superhero content. Despite initial criticisms, the film’s performance on the streaming platform showcases its appeal to audiences. As streaming platforms continue to shape the way we consume entertainment, the rankings provide valuable insights into viewer preferences and the evolving landscape of digital content.
