Spider-Man: No Way Home continues to make history. It has “revived” cinema, finally drawing crowds to cinemas in post-pandemic times. But one of the film’s greatest achievements is becoming the sixth highest grossing film in history, grossing $1.691 million worldwide. Not only that, the reviews are fantastic.
Of the total collection, 45.3% corresponds to the United States, or $721 million. The rest is considered for the international market, equivalent to $970 million. The success of Spider-Man: No Way Home is so great that it has become the most popular film in Mexican history and this weekend was again the most watched feature film in US cinemas. . .
The twenty-seventh film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a co-production between Disney and Sony, who own the audiovisual rights to Spider-Man.
‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ confirms Spider-Man is the most popular superhero in history
Spider-Man: No Way Home and its success once again confirms that it is the most successful superhero in movie history, but it’s been a long and complex road. Sony released the first superhero movie starring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker in 2002. It was a trilogy that ended in 2007. After the departure of actor and director Sam Raimi, the studio made the decision to reboot the franchise. This time with Andrew Garfield, so as not to lose the rights to the character.
After two films released in 2012 and 2014, Sony partnered with Marvel to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and unify the story arcs. After two successful films (Homecoming, Far From Home), issues between the studios returned, but were thankfully resolved.
And we say thankfully, not just for audiences, but for both studios, that they now have Spider-Man: No Way Home, one of the most successful films ever made, at their fingertips.
