The hype surrounding “Spider-Man: No Way Home” was immense even before it opened in theaters. Still, nobody expected the film to be that successful.
That „Spider-Man: No Way Home“ everyone expected it to be a complete success. After all, even the websites of the largest US cinema chains collapsed under the rush of fans, and the film lured with the prospect that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield could return, especially since the return of several previous Spider-Man villains had already been confirmed. But the current triumph of the film should have surprised even those in charge at Disney.

Despite the corona pandemic, which continues to rage, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is finally writing figures again as if the slump in cinema sales had not occurred in the past two years. After the second best US theatrical release of all time, the film is currently still working hard on its success story in these uncertain times.
Now he has also achieved another milestone: “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has officially “Marvel’s The Avengers“Overtaken and is currently the eighth most successful film of all time. According to Deadline The latest MCU contribution currently comes in at $ 1.53 billion worldwide, which would be an impressive result even without the impact of the pandemic. The most successful film in Sony’s history has been “No Way Home” for a long time and in the USA, thanks to more than 600 million US dollars, it has already made it into the top 10 most successful films of all time there (via Collider). Our video reveals which films are currently still ahead of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”:
Will “Spider-Man: No Way Home” still make it into the top 5?
The question now arises as to how long the soaring of the iconic net oscillator will last. “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is already not only the most successful “Spider-Man” flick, but also the most successful film that Sony has ever brought to the big screen. If the film trumps “The Lion King” (1.66 billion US dollars) and “Jurassic World” (1.67 billion US dollars), then the film ranks sixth. That’s around 135 million US dollars that the film would have to bring in. But since the film only recently started in Japan and the release is still imminent in a few countries, this hurdle doesn’t seem to stand in the way.
How far it goes for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” depends on whether the film will be released in China. A theatrical release for this huge market has not yet been announced. In the MCU are now only “Avengers: Infinity War” (2.05 billion US dollars) and “Avengers: Endgame” (2.8 billion US dollars) before “No Way Home”. The current “Spider-Man” film will probably not get over the magical hurdle of two billion US dollars and thus among the top 5 most successful films of all time, but that should not spoil the mood for those responsible.
