Looks like it is in Sony’s best interest to continue their contract with as Spider-Man: Far From Home is now their highest-grossing film ever. Up until now, Skyfall was Sony Picture’s highest-grossing global release ever at $1.108 billion. As of now, after yesterday’s projects, Far From Home stands at $1.11 billion. The film earned $376.6 million domestically and $732 million internationally. As such, it is the first film in the Spider-Man franchise that has crossed the $1 billion mark and that is only about three weeks. It also is currently the only non-Disney movie to pass the benchmark after quite a lot of underperformers this year.
It was only a question of time, as the film was enjoying a strong boost from Avengers: Endgame and a huge Chinese opening. Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently the second-highest earner in China so far. There might be a good chance that they announce the third installment in the film sometime soon, especially after the cliffhanger. The Tom Holland-led film has garnered quite a few records with its opening. Domestically, it is still behind Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man that still reigns at $403 million. We will see if the film can build up enough momentum to pass the record before leaving theatres by the end of its run.
Its successful run is also good news for Sony, as they invested quite a bit into the film’s promotion. The media campaign was valued at $288 million which is quite incredible and it would be interesting to cross-reference it with how much they directly invested. Don’t forget, the marketing budget is not included in the overall film budget and production companies share their overall Box Office income. Marvel Studios handles the production and creative choices behind the franchise while Sony has full control over the marketing. They were quite notorious for over bloating their marketing budget for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as they originally wanted to kickstart a billion-dollar franchise. Ironic to think that their goal was accomplished through direct cooperation with Marvel Studios and for it to become their highest-grossing film ever.
How often did you see the film? When do you think they will announce the third one?

Don Cheadle’s favorite Avengers: Endgame scene is a pretty good one.
Is the La La Land actor joining Phase 4’s Thor: Love and Thunder?
Tons of A-list actors have been joining the ranks of the MCU as of late – including serious award buzz types such as Jake Gylennhaal in Spider-Man, Salma Hayek in The Eternals, Mahershala Ali as Blade, and the return of Natalie Portman to play the Mighty Thor in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder. Could the Thor 4 writer/director be recruiting more star power with La La Land and Drive actor Ryan Gosling?
Now that the theatrical run is over, let’s assess the damage.

Set to premiere in Spring of 2021, the ‘Loki’ Disney+ series will finally show what Loki is up to after he escaped with the Tesseract and run away during the Time Heist of the Avengers during Avengers Endgame. Tom Hiddleston, who plays the iconic character, sat down with MTV News’ Personal Space to talk a little bit about the upcoming series.
In the interview, he revealed that he knew Loki’s fate in Avengers Infinity War two years before they filmed Thor Ragnarok. He initially thought that he was done with the character then. However, he shared when he learned that he will star in the Disney+ series.
I knew about six weeks before the worldwide release of Avengers: Infinity War. Which meant I had to go and do press for Avengers: Infinity War going, ‘Yup, that’s it guys.’
This means that he had to lie during press tours and tell them that he is ‘done’ with the character. Having completed the full arc of Loki’s journey through the movies then, Hiddleston shared interesting details on how this version of Loki will grow as a character in this series.
I know this character now. I feel that the audience knows him. Playing him truthfully, but presenting him with new challenges, when then I’d have to change him in different ways, is the most exciting aspect of it.
Hiddleston added that we will get to see how the God of Mischief uses his powers more and teases exciting villains along the way.
You’ve got his very specific gifts. His intelligence, treachery, his mischief, his magic, and then seeing him come up against more formidable opponents, the like of which he has never seen or known. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I can’t.
Given that the Loki that we follow in this series is an alternate version from the 2012 timeline, it will be interesting to see how different is this version’s growth and character development from the Loki that we followed in the movie side of the MCU from Thor to Avengers Infinity War.

The character certainly deserved it.
Even considering the plethora of announcements Marvel fans have gotten since SDCC regarding new movies and Disney+ shows (along with the always exciting cast reveals that have followed), the word has been particularly mum concerning a certain sequel to the MCU’s first-academy award-winning movie: Black Panther. While we don’t know much yet, Martin Freeman did confirm with Collider.com while discussing his new film Ode to Joy that he will be returning as CIA Agent Everett Ross!
As far as I know, I will be [returning]. As far as I know, I will be in another Black Panther. That’s my understanding. As to when that will happen, I don’t know.
Martin Freeman established himself as a film/television treasure long before his Marvel debut, and fans only want more of him after Agent Ross’s introduction in Captain America: Civil War and his latest adventure with the Wakandan King in 2018. There’s also hope among some of us at MCUExchange for Freeman to show up in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+ giving some more of the business to Helmut Zemo, fingers crossed!
Our last glimpse at Ross showed him joining T’Challa and the royal family in the Wakandan civil war, and with no update on his status during the Avengers’ latest rumbles with Thanos, we’re all anxious to find out what he has been up to, along with any confirmed news on Black Panther 2 that we can get!
