‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Surpasses ‘Iron Man’ At Domestic Box Office

Spider-Man: Homecoming has now surpassed Iron Man at the domestic box office. Keep in mind that this doesn’t factor in inflation (Iron Man was released in 2008).

Spider-Man: Homecoming has now grossed a total of $318,843,082 at the domestic box office since its July 7 release; whereas, Iron Man sits at a total domestic gross of $318,412,101. Homecoming will continue making money as it’s still playing in theaters.

Looking it through a character lens, Spider-Man flying past his mentor’s first movie is a bit ironic, and one could argue that the film was boosted by Iron Man’s presence as he was included in a lot of the marketing and posters.

What do you think about Spider-Man: Homecoming surpassing Iron Man? Let us know in the comments section below!

A young Peter Parker (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.

Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is now playing in theaters. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker will next be seen in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which will hit theaters on May 4, 2018.
