The wait is almost over for the new Sony/Marvel film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is finally swinging into theaters this week. Fandango revealed today that the buzz for the new Marvel film is so high that it has outpaced DC’s Wonder Woman on ticket sales for this weekend. In addition to that, the Fanticipation buzz indicator has Spider-Man: Homecoming at 97 out of 100 points.
According to a survey that Fandango moviegoers took, 89% are stoked for the new Spider-Man film because of Tom Holland and his performance as a character in high school. The survey also revealed that 87% have seen multiple Spidey films on the big screen, hence their interest for Homecoming.
We also learned that 86% of the moviegoers that took the survey are fans of Robert Downey Jr. while 70% of them are Michael Keaton fans. Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis spoke about the big buzz for the new Spider-Man franchise in an official statement.
“The strong advance ticket sales for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ represent a great start for Spidey’s main entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With terrific action set-pieces and some of the funniest scenes in any Marvel movie, ‘Homecoming’ is likely to see repeat viewing business throughout the summer.”
“A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.”
Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice and Abraham Attah, opens on Friday, July 7.
