Why this is important: Since acquiring Marvel, Walt Disney Co. has enjoyed huge box office success with many films released. As the reopening business begins to take shape, many people will be eager to see movies in theaters.
Some people may be cautious and only see the biggest movies in theaters, limiting travel to traditional theaters, which could further favor a company like Disney with huge blockbusters.
“Avengers: Endgame,” released in 2019, is the second highest grossing film nationally and globally with grossings of $ 858.4 million and $ 2.8 billion respectively.
“Avengers: Infinity War” and “The Avengers” also rank in the top 10 highest grossing films in the country.
“Black Panther” ranks fourth all-time in the country with a gross amount of $ 700.4 million. The film is ranked 12th in the world with a gross total of $ 1.3 billion. The film’s national percentage of 52% is the highest of the 47 highest-grossing films in the world.
Given the interest in the sequel following the death of Chadwick Boseman, the sequel may fare more favorably in international markets.
Marvel’s Phase 4 is shaping up to be another huge paycheck for Disney with blockbusters lined up. Disney shares had a strong performance with the growth of its streaming platform.
If the reopening of theme parks and cinemas can accelerate, Disney’s shares could go even higher.
DIS price action: Disney shares were down 0.25% to $ 185.51 at market close on Monday.
