Marvel’s latest superhero film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, has topped the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, making it the first film to feature the fan favourite character to achieve the milestone. The previous highest grossing Spider-Man moviewas the third film in Sam Raimi’s original trilogy, with a worldwide total of $890 million.
Far From Home is the third (of three) Marvel Cinematic Universe films of 2019 to cross the $1 billion mark. Avengers: Endgame recently dethroned Avatar for the all-time number one spot, with $2.79 billion in the bank.
Adjusted for inflation, however, Spider-Man 3’s total would amount to $1.3 billion in 2019 dollars, despite barely registering in China, and no 3D.

Marvel fans took to Twitter to express their joy at the latest accomplishment.
