Ant-Man is pulling away from The Incredible Hulk at the box office but is still $19,110,835 away from Captain America: The First Avenger. The odd-ball hero just wrapped up week five at the box office generating $5,493,417. Marvel films usually stay in the theater for 16 weeks, Avengers: Age of Ultron is on week 15.
Ant-Man has beat Captain America in weeks five and six, also Ant-Man is playing on more theaters and isn’t dropping off as much as The First Avengers did week to week. Is Ant-Man getting a box office boost due to the bomb that was Fantastic Four? Ant-Man is projected to finish right around $170,000,000.
If Ant-Man does beat Captain America: The First Avenger at the box office it will be a photo finish in week 16.
