Thor Love and Thunder Predicts A $300 Million Opening

Thor Love and Thunder

Thor Love and Thunder is expected to outperform Thor: Ragnarok at the box office during its first weekend.

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is progressing as Chris Hemsworth’s thunder god returns to theatres and Ms. Marvel season 1 on Disney+ nears its completion. After Thor: Ragnarok’s fresh take on the series rekindled interest in Thor’s saga, Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi reunite for Thor Love and Thunder. The fourth solo film, which Marvel Studios said was in production back in 2019, has just begun to appear in theatres as a result of COVID-19 delays.

Thor Love and Thunder Releases On July 7

Marvel Studios encountered several issues as they sought to roll out Phase 4 due to the epidemic. Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals did not make as much money at the movie office because of the epidemic. The MCU did not have a true smash until Tom Holland’s third installment in the universe, Spider-Man: No Way Home, was released in December 2021, grossing over $1.9 billion.

The box office for Doctor Strange 2, which is presently sitting at $953 million globally, came after this victory for Marvel. There is a lot of curiosity about how much money Thor Love and Thunder will bring in now that the film has begun to play in theatres all across the world. Thor: Love and Thunder are expected to gross between $140-160 million domestically and more than $300 million internationally on its opening weekend, according to Deadline.

The domestic result surpasses Thor: Ragnarok’s opening weekend revenue of $122.7M from November 2017. The opening weekend estimates for Thor: Love and Thunder indicate that Marvel Studios will have another successful weekend with one of its films. Doctor Strange 2’s $187M opening weekend is the biggest of 2022, and Spider-Man: No Way Home’s $260M debut is the second-largest opening ever and a post-COVID record. Even with an overperformance, Thor Love and Thunder will not even come close to those levels. It should still surpass Jurassic World Dominion‘s $145M opening weekend and become the second-highest opening weekend of 2022.
