Tom Holland Thanks Fans After Spider-Man: Far From Home Hits $1 Billion

In what's now become a first for the franchise, Spider-Man: Far From Home has swung past $1 billion at the global box office, and is the third MCU film to do so this year after Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, the latter of which actually became the highest-grossing movie of all-time, too.

Far From Home, meanwhile, now sits at $1.039 billion and counting, having earned $693 million overseas alone since it hit theaters back in early July. In North America, it currently has $346 million, and both of those figures are only expected to go up as the film continues to perform exceptionally well.

But even if it were to end its run now, it’d still be considered an incredible achievement, especially when you consider that Spider-Man: Homecoming reached $880 million two years ago. How high it’ll ultimately go remains to be seen, but Tom Holland is certainly feeling thankful, with the actor posting the following video on social media this week to thank his fans:

So, where does Spidey go from here? Well, we’ve heard rumors that Marvel has now regained control of the hero given that the latest MCU flick crossed the $1 billion threshold. And while that’s yet to be confirmed, we wouldn’t doubt it. After all, it’s pretty clear that Kevin Feige and co. have a much better handle on the property than Sony does, though what this could mean for the latter’s cinematic universe – which includes Venom and the upcoming Morbius, among others – remains to be seen.

In any case, if one thing is abundantly clear it’s that Spider-Man has a very bright future ahead of him in the MCU and with reports saying Marvel has plans for nine Spidey movies in total, we should be seeing a lot more of the webhead in the years to come.
