Not long ago, we heard of a reported stipulation that if Spider-Man: Far From Home didn’t break a billion dollars at the box office, that Sony would pretty much be able to take their Spider-Man ball and walk away from Marvel Studios from their next film. The movie has since easily trounced that particular milestone, and has even just passed another big one — becoming Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing film of all time.
As of this writing, the webslinger’s latest outing has cracked $1.109Bn. Why am I being uncharacteristically specific? Well, it’s because that number puts it right past $1.109 Bn, which is how much Skyfall grossed in its worldwide theatrical run.
That’s right, it has surpassed every single movie under the sun put out by Sony, and that includes The Emoji Movie. Clearly, Spider-Man: Far From Home benefited from coming out directly after Avengers: Endgame, but even more than that, it’s proven that Marvel Studios knows exactly what to do with the character in their world.
