Despite this year’s disappointing box office, Marvel Studio’s, Spider-Man: Far From Home shattered expectations over the holiday weekend. Pulling in over $580 million internationally, the latest chapter of the MCU could become the second highest grossing Spider-Man movie of all time. Considering the success of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home affirms Marvel’s immunity to franchise fatigue.
Spider-Man: Far From Home concludes the Infinity Saga and establishes the foundation for the future of the MCU. With Iron Man gone Peter must “step up” as agent Furry puts it, and begin developing into the new leader the Avengers will need for Phase Four of the MCU. Critics and fans alike have been raving over the way Spider-Man: Far From Home depicts Peter’s struggle between his desire to be a normal teenager and his responsibilities as a superhero. Earning over $185 million domestically, this quasi bildungsroman reveals that Marvel fans are not yet tired of the Marvel formula and ready for more.
Fortunately, there are plenty of new projects in the works. The Marvel superhero movie plan now stretches into 2022 and there are new movies being announced all the time! An X-Men spinoff called The New Mutants will be releasing in April of 2020 and Mobius starring Jared Leto will be released in July of the same year. There are also rumors about several unconfirmed movies fans have already expressed interest in, like Black Panther 2 and a Black Widow movie.
