As for the character, "Homecoming" shows that even though Holland is the third Spider-Man in 15 years, audiences will still line up for the hero's adventures.
These numbers prove the Marvel Cinematic Universe now has a new superstar, with Spidey joining Iron Man, Captain America and the Guardians of the Galaxy at the top of the superhero heap.
The domestic debut is Sony's second-highest opening ever and the second-biggest opening for a Spider-Man film behind 2007's "Spider-Man 3". But come on: if you're going to tell a Venom story, Peter Parker has to be involved - especially now that Homecoming is such a massive hit. It's much better than either of the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films, in my opinion.

Sky Sports to launch channel dedicated to golf

The "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel will arrive on July 5, 2019.
However, the current Spider-Man is now back in the MCU, and all set to suit up with the Avengers in the upcoming Infinity War.
