Spiderman: No Way Home has grossed over $1 billion worldwide at th box office, making it the highest grossing film of the pandemic, collecting over $1.18 billion at the time of writing. Produced in a budget of $200 million,  the movie’s trailer created a buzz by promising to introduce the ‘metaverse’, wherein different versions of the same protagonist show up on screen together.

 Fans were excited for the movie as many missed the earlier iterations of the movies directed by Sam Raimi and Marc Webb, starring Toby Macguire and Andrew Garfield, and this movie promised to bring the three Spidermans, played by Tom Holland, Macguire, and Garfield, together along with old recognizable antagonists ‘Doctor Octopus’ and Sandman.
