Spider-Man has always been one of Marvel's most popular characters, so movies featuring the character have traditionally performed well at the box office. What has helped make No Way Home such a juggernaut is its mix of multiple fandoms. The movie has the push of the MCU behind it, as well as Spider-Man's natural personality and its ties to the two previous Spider-Man film franchise.
Now Way Home is easily the biggest Spider-Man movie to-date, but it certainly won't be the last. Tom Holland will likely return for more movies in the not-too-distant future, but first, he'll be appearing in a non-Spidey title for Marvel Studios as part of the character swap deal that allows him to exist in that universe.
"It's reciprocal. So we lend one, and they lend one, and that's how Benedict [Cumberbatch] is in this movie," Sony chairperson Tom Rothman told ComicBook.com at the No Way Home Premiere. "So we have one more 'lend back' that's committed. But the thing that I can say, and this actually the accurate scoop on this, which is that the two companies have a terrific working relationship. I think it's a mutual hope that that would continue. But there really isn't anything definitive at this moment, because the truth of the matter is, we gotta ride [Spider-Man: No Way Home] and see what happens."
