The release of the first Spider-Man film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is only a few short days away and the expected earnings for its opening weekend are high. It’s currently on track to pull in at least 100 million, gross earnings falling anywhere between $80 and 110 Million. While Sony (who Marvel shares the character with) is aiming at the lower end of the spectrum with 80 Million for the debut, it’s still respected especially considering the fact that this will be the 2nd attempt at a reboot in the last 5 years and the 3 attempt at the franchise within the last 15.
The high numbers for Homecoming‘s opening weekend speak highly to the character’s popularity as well as the popularity of the entire MCU as a whole, especially with other solo character films on the way (aka only 228 days until Black Panther ya’ll). In their attempt at co-parenting the web-slinger, Sony will receive the revenue generated from the box office while the money earned from the sales of toys and merchandise connected to the movie will go Disney.
Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey and Tom Holland as the titular character.
