I Think ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is Going to Make a Billion Dollars

Yep. I’m predicting it now. Spider-Man: No Way Home is bound to be the first film during the pandemic-era to make a billion dollars. And Shang-Chi is another major reason why.

Spider-Man: No Way Home' Trailer Beats 'Avengers: Endgame' Record - Variety

One week ago the highly-anticipated No Way Home trailer dropped and unsurprisingly the fandom shattered the internet for days on end about the trailer. It broke the record for most views of a trailer in a day with 355, 500, 000 views, roughly seven million more views than Endgame which previously held the record. That just goes to show the level of excitement revolving around this film.

Shang-Chi doesn't have a release date in China, why that's a big deal

And now Shang-Chi, an obscure Asian Marvel superhero that a lot of people didn’t know about, has shattered Labor Day box-office records and grossed 71.3 million with its domestic box-office earnings over the opening weekend and is set to make more money in its first four days than Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Doctor Strange! And that’s during the scary throes of the pandemic!

If fans and intrigued newcomers can turn up in huge numbers for a brand-new superhero who we don’t even know then there’s no doubt people will show up in droves to see Peter Parker’s next adventure on the big screen.

Not only do people already love Spider-Man but this movie is going to feature fan favorites like Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2, the return of Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and SO. MUCH. MORE!!!!

And, to add more flames to this prediction, the film will be able to take advantage of the Christmas-New Year box-office season.

Yeah, Spider-Man: No Way Home definitely has the chance to potentially make a billion dollars this year and if that happens I will be so excited.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

  1. A few of us OG nerds who came of age in the 1970s knew about Shang-Chi, of course. Just like any Jack Kirby fan knew about the Eternals. Neither title was ever my favorite, however. I trust that the MCU knows what it’s doing.

  2. It definitely could hit a billion. Maybe a safer bet is to say it will be the number one movie of the year, beating F9’s worldwide gross of $700 million. It greatly helps that it won’t be simultaneously released on streaming. Under normal circumstances, this is a billion-dollar movie for sure. The only real question is how much COVID suppresses the gross.

    My Spider-Man bias says if Tobey Maguire’s put into the trailers, and has a significant part, it’ll hit a billion. But I also think a Spider-Man 4 with Tobey would be a billion-dollar movie. The internet memes on Tobey have exploded in the last couple years, so there’s sort of an underground swelling of demand to see him come back. Especially the videos putting Tobey into the MCU. “Bully Maguire completely destroys Mjölnir” has 14 million views and “Bully Maguire kills the Winter Soldier” has 13 million.
