“Spider Man: No Way Home” Will Cross $500 Mil Mark Today After 12 Days, Despite COVID Fans Go to Theaters


COVID is everywhere.

Cases are rising faster than they did when this thing first started. Hospitalizations are way up.

And yet, fans of “Spider Man: No Way Home” continue to go to movie theaters.

Today, the three-Spidey film will cross the $500 mil mark after just 12 days. It’s well over a billion worldwide.

No one cares about COVID when you’ve got three Spider-Men and many villains battling to save or end the world.

“No Way Home” will hit the all-time gross list today at number 14, jumping ahead of “The Rise of Skywalker.”

Amazing, as Peter Parker has been described. Stan Lee must be going crazy in heaven. Good for him!

You know what might be cool, next? A Broadway musical! Maybe they could get Bono and Edge to write some songs…
