Spider-Man: Far From Home Swings Past One Billion Dollars Worldwide
While he may be an honorary member of The Avengers, The Wall-Crawler has joined another exclusive organization, the ‘Three Commas Club.’
Spidey’s latest outing, Spider-Man: Far From Home, took Spider-Man out of his beloved New York City, but it also accomplished a franchise first. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel’s second Spidey solo flick has taken in more than $1 billion at the box-office worldwide — the first Spider-Man movie to officially do so. Adjusting for inflation however makes it the fourth Spider-Man movie to cross this threshold as the three Sam Raimi Spider-Man films reach it after adjustments.
While all three MCU films released in 2019, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Far From Home have crossed the billion-dollar threshold, it’s still technically a Sony property — which makes it only the second film from the studio to accomplish this. The first was 2012’s James Bond flick, Skyfall. Spider-Man’s first MCU entry, Spider-Man: Homecoming, tapped out at $880 million worldwide.
Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Zendaya as MJ, Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, Jacob Batalon as Ned, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, along with Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, and Numan Acar (Aladdin) as Dimitri. MCU veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Captain Marvel) and Cobie Smulders also appear as Nick Fury and Maria Hill, respectively.
You can add to this total by checking out Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is still in theaters now.
