It’s difficult to say yet whether the film will be successful.
The Marvel movie cost Disney approximately $274.8 million to produce, Forbes reports, citing company documents. It was possible to find out the film’s budget thanks to Disney receiving a subsidy from the British authorities.
The government provided Disney with a subsidy of approximately $55 million; the company spent the rest of the funds from its own pocket. As a result, Forbes writes, Marvel will have to show good box office receipts to break even.
According to the publication, Marvel’s break-even point is approximately $440 million. About half of the film’s box office receipts go to the film company; in the case of Marvel, Disney needs to receive a little more than $219 million.
As Forbes notes, some of Disney’s recent films have grossed close to Marvel’s break-even point. For example, Ant-Man and the Wasp 3 earned about $476.1 million, barely breaking even.
An interesting point: Marvel’s budget is comparable to the production costs of the Secret Invasion series, which cost $211.6 million. There is no information about the popularity of the show, but critics did not really like the series.
The Marvel film will be released on November 10, 2023.
