Among Spider-flicks, Homecoming's $117 million take notches it behind only Spider-Man 3, the final entry in the Tobey Maguire / Sam Raimi series that helped kick off the comic-book-movie craze that's still going strong today.
"This original 22-movie arc ends with the untitled "Avengers" in May of 2019 and then two months later it will be Peter and Spider-Man (on July 5, 2019) that usher us into the aftermath and how things proceed from there". The new Peter Parker (Tom Holland) was an inspired casting choice, pretty much high-school age, athletically gifted and bringing a certain vulnerability and wonder you would associate with a nerdy 15-year-old who got superpowers.
However, the current Spider-Man is now back in the MCU, and all set to suit up with the Avengers in the upcoming Infinity War. That makes the film one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time. Homecoming is basically Spider-Man's Man Of Steel-except that he destroys fences and cars (and admittedly a ferry), not an entire city-as he comes into his powers.
