Tom Holland’s Peter Parker is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe solo feature film debut this weekend in Spider-Man: Homecoming and it’s already looking like the film could be a huge financial hit.
Deadline is reporting that the film could stand to earn somewhere between $90 to $110 million overseas. Add that to the projected $100-$120 million that it is expected to earn in the U.S., and Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios could be looking at a worldwide haul somewhere in the ballpark of $190-$210 million for the film’s opening weekend.
In comparison, this is more than Sony’s previous two efforts with the character. The Andrew Garfield-starring The Amazing Spider-Man garnered $62 million domestically in its opening weeking, going on to make a worldwide total of $757.9 million, while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened with $91 million in the U.S. and ended up taking in $708.9 million total overall. It looks like with Marvel Studios backing them, Sony stands to do much better this time around.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Donald Glover, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Tyne Daly, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
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.
Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7, 2017.
