Spider-Man: Homecoming has passed 2008’s Iron Man at the domestic box office, earning $318.8 million since its release on July 7.
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.
