By comparison, Iron Man, which launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe and helped to reinvigorate Robert Downey Jr.'s career, ended its North American theatrical run with $318.4 million.

The first co-production between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, Spider-Man: Homecoming isn't that far behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which has earned $389.4 million domestically at a tepid summer box office. Spider-Man is shaping up to be one of the season's big winners, alongside Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, which just passed $800 million worldwide.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has earned $737 million worldwide, to become the seventh highest-grossing release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, wedged between Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Although Homecoming has already passed 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($709 million) at the global box office, and is within striking distance of 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man ($757.9 million), it's unlikely to touch the final tallies of Sam Raimi's original trilogy (2002's Spider-Man 2 comes in at No. 3 with $783.3 million).

Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
