'Spider-Man: Homecoming' swings to the top

Ladies and Gentlemen, I think we have definitive proof that Spider-Man: Homecoming would be even better if one of the zillion new things Peter Parker's teched-up Spidey suit could do was summon a giant transforming mecha. ($146 million), a triumphant return to the silver screen for the Webslinger.

That is what the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming hopes audiences are drawn to as the third Spider-Man reboot in a decade hit movie theaters last week.

According to a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained that the five-movie storyline of "Captain America: Civil War", "Spider-Man: Homecoming", "Avengers: Infinity War", the untitled "Infinity War" sequel and the "Homecoming" sequel will be an ongoing journey of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland). That film took in $151 million when it opened and went on to a $336 million total.

Number two at the box office this past weekend is "Despicable Me 3", with $34 million, followed by "Baby Driver", "Wonder Woman" and "Transformers: The Last Knight". That allows the hero to be a part of Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe that includes Iron Man, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers.

As you can tell, the look was quite different. Besides the great scene towards the end, depicting Gwen's untimely demise, the movie had little going for it, and was panned so badly that Sony called it a day, and chose to let the web-slinger go back to Marvel Studios, join the Avengers, and reap part of the benefits by sharing the character with his creators.

Venom is one of Spider-Man's most formidable (and popular) villains, though Sony has described the movie as a standalone story, unrelated to Homecoming.
