The generally disliked Spider-Man 3 earned $490 million overseas and $356.5 million domestic for a grand total of $890,871,626. 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man (the first reboot with Andrew “Paycheck” Garfield in the lead role) earned $752 million worldwide but the domestic tally fell to $262 million, obviously a major drop. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is almost guaranteed a domestic box office tally south of $250 million, but the international figures will probably again make the franchise too profitable to discontinue. Some critics are bending themselves into pretzels to say nice things, but who really cares besides Sony stockholders?
