More MCU Spider-Man Coming: ‘No Way Home’ Officially Biggest Film Ever for Sony


 

According to Deadline, Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home has officially become the third biggest global opener of all-time with $587.2M. Crossing the $500M mark makes it only the sixth film ever to the milestone in a launch frame. The Jon Watts-directed MCU entry instantly becomes the No. 6 movie of 2021 worldwide (No. 3 for the studios), overtaking all other Marvel pics this year. Topping $500M at open is even more impressive as NWH did it without China, only the second film ever to the five-century mark sans that giant market.

 

For Sony, this is the biggest opening weekend, ever. At the international box office, No Way Home grossed $334.2M from 60 markets across five days, landing at No. 7 for the year so far among all titles, and No. 4 for Hollywood.

Meanwhile, the studios are fiercely working on where this leads. 

 

In other reports, Disney and Sony are “actively beginning to develop” where the web-slinger’s story goes next, says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

 

Feige’s comments came in an interview with The New York Times published Friday, for which he sat down with former Sony exec and franchise producer Amy Pascal. “Amy and I and Disney and Sony are talking about — yes, we’re actively beginning to develop where the story heads next,” said Feige
