Our major societal nightmare is over. After last nights occasion saw a handful of cast members dropping fake titles, we now have an actual title for Sony and Marvel’s third entry in the Jon Watts-directed Spider-Man series.
The movie will simply be called Spider-Man: Far From Home – Part 2. In my personal opinion, this looks like status quo that would be dangerous to Spider-Man, someone who doesn’t exist in the same world as Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel or Pepper Potts (and Tony Stark’s money). And the film is still planned to be shown only in theaters.
Well, besides the Coronavirus debacle, there was always going to be a Spider-Man: Far from Home followup in 2021, after six years. The movie was going to face competition from Jurassic World: Rage of the Dinosaurs and James Cameron’s Avatar 2. In 2022, both Black Panther and Spider-Man will open in cinemas together with Thor: Ragnarök, Doctor Strange 2 and The Batman.
Spider-Man: No Way Home opening at the end of 2012 has the potential to become a box office winner because it opening at the end of 2012.
This is good sign because more theaters is good for film industry. The heroes of all these films would not have lost a competition to F9, Spider-Man 3 and perhaps a greater idealistic scenario.
The film opens in such a way that it’s difficult to either declare a winner or loser.
The popularity of the MCU brand and Spider-Man character are still prevalent throughout the movie industry. Homecoming, Far from Home and cameos will help drive audience’s interest again. The film has a far more laid back and comfortable atmosphere than any summer blockbuster.
There is not much reason now for this not to be a big movie. This box office victory means a new box office champion. Spider-Man: No Way Home will probably have a larger global gross than any other worldwide motion picture in 2018.
