Spider-Man: Homecoming Surpasses Batman v Superman At Domestic Box Office


Spider-Man finally made his long awaited MCU debut last year in “Captain America: Civil War” and in July of this year his first standalone adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hit theaters when “Spider-Man: Homecoming” was released.

The film has done well at the box office so far with a current total of $861 million worldwide, and it recently surpassed the domestic box office total for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

“Batman v Superman” managed to score $330,360,194 at the domestic box office and as of this writing “Spider-Man: Homecoming” has made $330,361,861 according to Box Office Mojo.

“Homecoming” still has a ways to go to reach the worldwide total of $873,260,194 that “Batman v Superman” accrued as it currently stands at $861,695,596. The film was recently released in China where it’s managed to pull in $104 million since September 8, so it could potentially surpass the worldwide total as well, but with the Digital HD and Blu-Ray release dates quickly approaching, one has to imagine that the domestic box office run for “Homecoming” will be coming to an end soon.

Even though some fans like to play up competition between DC and Marvel films, these numbers are great for both “Batman v Superman” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and they prove that the heroes are still a big box office draw.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” will be released on Digital HD on September 26 and Blu-Ray on October 17.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, young Peter Parker returns home to live with his Aunt May.
