You know you’re a bona fide superhero when you’ve bested a bona fide badass of espionage. It’s official — Spider-Man is now the king of Sony Pictures‘ box office, taking the crown from James Bond.
It was over the course of last week that Spider-Man: Far From Home surpassed 2012’s Skyfall (US$1.108 billion)as the highest-grossing Sony Pictures movie ever to be released globally.
This comes just a little over a month after the final Phase 3 Marvel Studios movie premiered, and only three weeks after Far From Home grossed over US$1 billion (projected US$1.109 billion at the time of writing, barely edging out Skyfall‘s US$1.108 billion) , making it the first non-Disney movie to reach that mark in 2019.
Additionally, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home is now the second most successful movie featuring your friendly neighbourhood wall-crawler, with the critically-acclaimed Spider-Man 2 (2004) featuring Tobey Maguire still sitting pretty as the most successful web-slinging movie to date.
Perhaps, it’ll only be a matter of time before Holland takes over, seeing as his journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is far from over.
