Spider-Man: No Way Home was such a huge hit, not only did it become one of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history, it rejuvenated interest in the old versions of the Spider-Man movie franchise, although neither was particularly popular by the time those series each ran their course in the 2000s and 2010.
For example: the first Spidey movie starring Andrew Garfield’s version of the wall crawler, The Amazing Spider-Man, is suddenly the #1 movie on Netflix in the United States. The film, which came out ten years ago, was recently added to the service and shot straight to the top of the company’s movie charts. Right now, it’s more popular than high-profile Netflix originals like Last yearrecent additions like the new one jackass 4.5″and even word of mouth like the new Indian action movie RRR.
No way home is the third-greatest film in US history, behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Endgame. Worldwide, it is the sixth largest film ever with a grossing of $1.89 billion. (The top five, if you’re curious: Avatar† Avengers: Endgame† Titanic† Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinite War.) In comparison, The Amazing Spider-Man grossed $262 million in the US and $757.9 million worldwide – not bad, but nowhere near No way homethe competition. In addition to Garfield, the film also starred Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the Lizard – who also had a recurring role on No way home next to Garfield.
After No way homeThe phenomenal success led fans to speculate about a new Spidey crossover movie or even a new solo franchise for Tobey Maguire or Garfield’s versions of the character. Garfield has since said he’s willing to play Spider-Man again, but to date Sony has not confirmed any such project.
In the meantime, Spider-Man: No Way Home is available for purchase or rent in a variety of formats, including Blu-ray and digital.
