After having great box office results last year with “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Marvel execs are putting together plans for a sequel.
Unlike the first film, though, the next movie won’t just take place in the United States. According to Empire, Kevin Feige who oversees the Marvel film series said the next “Spider-Man” flick will film in London, with production starting in early July.
Empire reports that while the hero will spend time in his own city of New York, he will also travel to other parts of the world. So far, the only location outside North America is London, but more areas should be noticed as filming continues.
The “Spider-Man” sequel is scheduled for a release on July 5, 2019. However, fans will see the web-slinger return this week, as he will fight alongside other super heroes in “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Speaking of the third “Avengers” movie, it will very likely dominate a box office that hasn’t seen a smash hit since February when “Black Panther” was released. Other than “Black Panther,” which made more than $200 million in its first weekend, top earners have included “A Quiet Place” at $50 million, “Ready Player One” at $41 million and “Rampage” at $35 million.
This past weekend, reports show “A Quiet Place” making $22 million, edging out “Rampage” at $21 million.
The full top five was:
1. A Quiet Place – $22,000,000
2. Rampage – $21,000,000
3. I Feel Pretty – $16,220,000
4. Super Troopers – $14,700,000
5. Truth or Dare – $7,910,000
Currently, the top opening weekends in history are:
- “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” earning $247 million.
- “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” earning $220 million.
- “Jurassic World,” earning $208 million.
- “The Avengers,” $207 million.
