The Spider-pact is paying off. Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first solo film since Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios announced their deal to share Spidey in 2015, surpassed $300 million at the domestic box office yesterday. Worldwide, the picture looks even better, already amassing $682 million despite just opening in Japan today and not arriving in China until September 8.
This gives Spider-Man: Homecoming a great chance to be the first film in the franchise to earn over $800 million globally since Spider-Man 3 in 2007 ($890.9 million). To do so, Homecoming will need a big boost in China, but there’s a good chance it will receive just that. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grabbed $94.4 million in China three years ago and the last four films featuring Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man earned an average of $114.2 million. Thus far in 2017, all live-action films based on Marvel or DC properties have averaged $99 million in China.
