Only a superhero like Spider-Man could save the world box office, or rather, three Spider-Men. In accordance with Variety, Spider-Man: No Way Home – 92% It has just surpassed US $ 800 million globally, and with only ten days in theaters, it is already the highest-grossing film in Hollywood since 2019, the year in which major blockbusters such as Captain Marvel – 60%, Avengers: Endgame – 95% Y Joker – 91%. As you all know, the Covid-19 pandemic led to cinemas closing their doors for several months in 2020, and when they reopened, people weren’t showing up in large numbers.

With its US $ 813.9 million raised, Spider-Man: No Way Home also surpassed No time to die – 83%, the film that was ranked one of the highest grossing in Hollywood during the pandemic with $ 774 million. At the moment the film starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home – 82%, Avengers: Infinity War – 79%, The impossible – 81%) is still surpassed worldwide by Chinese productions The Battle at Lake Changjin, which raised US $ 902 million, and Hi, Mom, which raised US $ 882 million, but everything indicates that it will not only leave them behind in a few days, but that it will be the first film of the pandemic to cross US $ 1 billion, quite an achievement considering that it has not been released in China , one of the most important markets for Marvel.
At the local box office (United States and Canada), in accordance with Box Office Mojo, Spider-Man: No Way Home has raised US $ 422 million, and according to Variety, on Sunday it could exceed US $ 450 million. This is not only great news for the movie theater networks and studios, it is also great news for the fans, as the success means that Spider-Man films will continue to be produced.
Spider-Man: No Way Home It begins right where the previous installment of the superhero ends, when Mysterio reveals that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. When he goes to consult Doctor Strange, he proposes a spell that will make everyone forget who he is, but something goes wrong and characters from other universes begin to arrive.
The success of Spider-Man: No Way Home shows that fulfilling the dreams of fans is much more profitable than “subverting expectations”, as they did Game of Thrones – 59% Y Star Wars: The Last Jedi – 91%. Many will be in favor of making risky decisions, but when it comes to financial success there is no doubt that the fan service It is effective.
Rumors about the return of Tobey Maguire (The Master Play – 72%, The great Gatsby – 48%, Crazy weekend – 25%) Y Andrew Garfield (Until the Last Man – 86%, Red Social – 96%, A reason to live – 67%) had been around since last year, but at Sony they made an effort to hide it from the public, and the only thing that was promoted in the trailers were the villains, especially the Green Goblin played by Willem Dafoe (The Last Temptation of Christ – 82%, Born on July 4 – 90%, Antichrist – 70%), Doctor Octopus played by Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2 – 93%, Frida – 76%, Beautiful Revenge – 90%) and the Electro played by Jamie Foxx (Collateral: Wrong Place and Time – 86%, Django Unchained – 87%, Baby – The Crime Apprentice – 93%). Spider-Man: No Way Home confirmed that the rumors were true, the film brought back not only the villains from previous movies, but Spider-Men, and the excitement seen in theaters is only matched by that shown by the audience during the screening of Avengers: Endgame.
Although at this time we do not know if we will have more of Maguire and Garfield in future installments, it would be an excellent idea as fans have shown how much they love those versions of Spider-Man. The critics have been quite kind to the film, and the fans too, as we can see from the financial success.
