Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are likely feeling some relief with their current success with Spider-Man: Far From Home after some of the weaker box office outings of other studio tentpoles over the summer.
Spider-Man: Far From Home has now earned an impressive $847 million worldwide (an estimated $45.3 million domestically this weekend) via BoxOfficeMojo and by our estimates could by next Sunday cross the billion-dollar mark.
Making Spider-Man: Far From Home the first solo Spider-Man movie to make a billion and sometime soon will surpass Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3’s box office total to become the highest-grossing film in the franchise (unadjusted).
This would certainly nix all those rumors from fandom about Sony Pictures reconsidering their partnership with Marvel Studios because Sony was able to manage a rather large box office hit with their messy Venom movie last fall.
Good news for Sony, who didn’t have the best results with Men In Black: International which cost $110 million to make and only earned $239.4 million, which would certainly suggest that they took a loss there.
Kevin Feige and director Jon Watts have already teased potential ideas for Spider-Man 3, so I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if the film ended up getting an announcement next weekend during the Marvel Studios presentation at San Diego Comic-Con
