Unlike its other superheroes - Captain America, Thor and Iron Man with huge openings, 'Ant-Man' is the  lowest domestic opening for Marvel Studios since 'The Incredible Hulk.'

“No one else could take what is really an obscure character and launch it in such a big way,” said Hollis, Disney distribution chief.

“It’s a sign that they’re doing so much right and that it’s a brand that has overwhelming momentum,” he added.
