“Wonder Woman,” which is the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe, made $103 million in its first weekend at the beginning of June. Since then, it has continued to do well against such varied fare as “Despicable Me 3” and “Baby Driver.” Indeed, on a daily basis it is outpacing another Marvel movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2,” which opened in early May to $146 million and will top out its domestic run at just under $400 million.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” is the 16th entry in the mega-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was produced by Marvel Studios which reached a deal with Sony to share the rights to Spider-Man. Sony had previously produced three “Spider-Man” films starring Tobey Maguire (2002-2007) and two with Andrew Garfield (2012-2014) that weren’t connected to the MCU.
The final film for Maguire, “Spider-Man 3,” holds the weekend box office record among those five as its opening frame takings topped $150 million domestically. It went on to gross $335 million at home. And his first stint as Peter Parker made a record $403 million.
