But unfortunately, fans’ dream of Spider-Man: No Way Home making $2B never got fulfilled. However, on a recent note, 2024 seems to be the year when the dream might come true, only under one condition. Industry scooper believes the re-release of Tom Holland’s movie could help it break a superhero movie record. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home Trails Behind Avengers: Infinity War

Tom Holland‘s appearance as Marvel’s web shooter – Peter Parker aka Spider-Man, seems to have made the most successful standalone movie in the superhero universe. But nothing broke records like his third installment Spider-Man: No Way Home. Initially released in December 2021, the movie bagged more than $1B at the global box office after collecting over $800M at the domestic box office.

Featuring Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire’s version of Spider-Men in one frame, the movie toppled people’s expectations and smashed several records at the box office. Despite lacking the iconic team-up of the Avengers, Holland’s movie became one of the highest-grossing superhero films right behind #1 Avengers: Endgame (2019) and #2 Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

However, despite breaking significant records at the box office, fans began hoping for more from Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. As the film managed to earn over $1B at the global market, fans began hoping for the film to cross the $2B mark and topple Marvel’s Avengers movies that were residing on top. Unfortunately, the film failed to live up to that expectation. 

Tom Holland’s Movie Could Finally Make $2B With Re-release 

Now, after years since Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home released there seems to be a way for it to break a superhero movie record. It seems fans’ expectations might finally come true in 2024 if only Sony re-releases the movie in theatres. According to industry scooper MyTimeToShineHello, Sony’s decision to follow the plan might help the movie finally reach the $2B mark.

Overthrowing Avengers: Infinity War (2018) on its way, Spider-Man: No Way Home might finally get to compete with Avengers: Endgame (2019). By doing so, No Way Home will not only become the second-highest-grossing movie after Endgame, but also become the highest-earning superhero movie, without the Avengers team. While it might be a little difficult for Holland’s movie to overpower Endgame’s $2.7B record, overthrowing Infinity War’s $2B mark would be rather easy.

While fans have mixed opinions about the re-release of such an iconic movie, there are a few netizens who believe the re-release might positively influence its success. With the majority of fans hoping to witness Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home cross the $2B mark, there seem to be arguments about the idea, especially after its 2022 re-release where the film earned merely $9M. 

Right now, with fingers crossed, fans hope for Sony to re-release Spider-Man: No Way Home, which might help make a difference and break records, this time.
