The Ending of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Teases a Classic Villain
Even as late as last week, Spider-Man: Homecoming was looking at somewhere around a $125 million opening, as we discussed, citing Box Office Pro's numbers on the subject.
"Homecoming" was one of the biggest tests yet for the notion that domestic moviegoers are growing tired of sequels and reboots and suffering so-called "franchise fatigue".
"As Spider-Man returns to the big screen, we at Pizza Hut are ready to deliver our crowd and family-favourite All-In-One Box, the ideal combination for routine pizza nights and one super-powered summer".
Asked who he would like Spider-Man to join in the future, Holland told MTV, "I really like the idea of Spider-Man and Hulk".
While it certainly helps to have someone like Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) to offer guidance, I would say the franchise would be primed to introduce the Kingpin, played brilliantly by Vincent D'Onofrio on Daredevil into the fold.
The superhero film has grossed more than $120 million on its opening weekend which is slightly above Tobey Mcguire's 2002 Spider-Man film. The fifth film in the Paramount franchise is expected to make just $6 million this weekend.
Leonardo DiCaprio? Remember when he was the darling of Sony Pictures? He also has a handful of writing and producing credits, and is one of six writers credited on the "Homecoming" script. Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal share production credit.

Well, this weekend Sony gained two new heart throbs.
"Baby Driver" was third with $12.7 million in its second weekend of release.
As good as the news was for Sony, the weekend's results also proved a modern-day movie maxim: No one does franchise-building better than Marvel. For comparison, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opened to $146.5 million back in May.
In its sixth week in theaters, Wonder Woman still finds herself in the top 5, landing at No. 4.
The latter success came only after several high-profile missteps in Warner Bros.' attempt to build a Marvel-style universe of films.
"Nobody knows Marvel better than Marvel", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. No way was Sony ever going to give up on Spider-Man.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
