The internet myth that Ant-Man and The Wasp is some kind of bomb because it didn’t make $1 billion at the box office continues to be squashed. The Ant-Man sequel has ended its run in China, and has become the fourth highest-grossing superhero movie there. Only the previous two Avengers movies and Captain America: Civil War made more money there:
The Wasp ended it's running with $122.09M of lifetime gross in China. It's the 4th highest-grossing MCU/superhero movie only behind recent two Avengers movies & Civil War in local currency(5th in USD). MCU has earned $2 billion in CHN for the past 10 years. #AntManAndTheWasp pic.twitter.com/2jEHMqPkJc

With the box office in China and other international releases, Ant-Man and The Wasp has made more than $100 million more than the original movie. When a sequel makes more than the first movie in the series, that generally means it’s a success.
