Opening weekend projections for Marvel Studios’ “The Marvels” film are going down, not up it seems.

Deadline reports that the film’s domestic opening weekend forecast, which was as high as $75-80 million a few weeks ago, has now dropped to $60 million with some suggesting it will be even lower.

That would put it considerably below 2021’s misfire “Eternals” and on par with 2015’s “Ant-Man” at $57.2 million.

Overseas projections are a little rosier with the film tracking for an $80 million debut which puts its global start at $140 million.

That again would be behind “Eternals” which had a $160 million debut and closer to “Black Widow” ($148 million) which was pandemic-impacted.

Pre-sales for the film are now at just over $5 million – putting it on par with DC flop “The Flash” this year which debuted to $55 million.

That’s a long way from four years ago when “Captain Marvel” had a strong debut of $154 million domestically.
