Despite slipping from the top of the box office chart this past weekend due to the arrival of Disney’s The Lion King, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home added another $58 million to its global tally across the Friday to Sunday period, propelling it past 2007’s Spider-Man 3 to become the web-slinger’s highest grossing solo movie.
Far From Home has now amassed $970.8 million worldwide and will soon become the first Spider-Man movie to hit the $1 billion mark, as well as the third MCU movie to reach that milestone this year after Captain Marvel and the new all-time box office champion Avengers: Endgame.
As yet, there’s been no word on the future of Spider-Man in the MCU, with no mention of a third movie at any point during Marvel’s big panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend. However, with the success of this latest instalment, it’s surely only a matter of time before Spider-Man 3 talk starts to surface.
Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!
Spider-Man: Far From Home features the return of Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Zendaya (Michelle), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds), Angourie Rice (Betty Brant), Tony Revolori (Flash Thompson), Martin Star (Mr. Harrington), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), with Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) as Mysterio.
