Overall, the film nabbed $257 million around the world this weekend. Sony has already begun prepping its own superhero universe, with an upcoming Venom movie starring Tom Hardy in the works. But while the Caped Crusader enjoyed a little downtime between his film exploits, Spider-Man has seen three reboots in 15 years.

The latest "Spider-Man" movie has proven it can hang with the big boys.

Sam Raimi's trilogy, which also included Spider-Man 2 (2004) and the much-maligned Spider-Man 3 (2007), is still considered to have some of the best superhero films to date, despite being set before Marvel made a decision to take its interconnected comic universe to screen.

Moviegoers will find out how the events with Thanos and the space struggle will affect Parker as he continues with high school in Queens, New York.

Jon Watts said he wanted to make Homecoming a cross between a superhero movie and a high school comedy where the dorky lead is a fanboy of other superheroes.

It occurred while the slain officer, a 12-year veteran with the NYPD, was in a command vehicle with her partner in the Bronx. Thousands are expected to attend the wake and funeral services for the NYPD officer who was fatally shot in the Bronx.

As for the character, "Homecoming" shows that even though Holland is the third Spider-Man in 15 years, audiences will still line up for the hero's adventures.

Among Spider-flicks, Homecoming's $117 million take notches it behind only Spider-Man 3, the final entry in the Tobey Maguire / Sam Raimi series that helped kick off the comic-book-movie craze that's still going strong today.

The result is Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is merrily racking up moolah at the box office right now.

The "Spider-Man: Homecoming" sequel will arrive on July 5, 2019.
