Spider-Man: Far from Home has quietly managed to accomplish a major box office milestone.
Over the weekend, the sequel overtook Captain Marvel, very narrowly, to become the third biggest movie of 2019.
This normally would be viewed as a win/win for Marvel, but given the recent split between Sony and Disney when it comes to future entries in the Spider-Man franchise, the implications of this feel particularly magnified.
According to the most recent box office numbers available, Spider-Man: Far From Home has now earned $1,128,276,196 worldwide, narrowly overtaking Captain Marvel, which earned $1,128,274,794 worldwide during its run earlier this year.
Both Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers appeared in this year’s third Marvel Cinematic Universe offering, Avengers: Endgame, which went on to become the highest-grossing movie ever with a massive $2.79 billion take.
The second-biggest movie of the year also belongs to Disney with The Lion King, which currently stands at $1.61 billion globally.
