Even the biggest money-maker - Spider-Man 3 - managed $890 million; After two weekends the latest one is bubbling just under $500 million and although it's dropped off from opening weekend, is still making good money. It should easily best AMS2 and rival the first two Raimi films.
Take into account inflation though and it won't come even close.
Fair point, I didn't consider inflation.
I don't necessarily disagree, but I reckon it won't be as far off as you might think in terms of worldwide gross - inflation adds about 200 mill to Spider-Man and $150 mill to Spider-Man 3(the highest grossing of the five), so the targets are adjusted to $1.14 billion for Spider-Man and $1.049 billion for 3. I reckon Homecoming will break about $800 million, which isn't bad for the seventh film featuring the character in fifteen years - hold the sequel off until 2020 and it could break a billion again IMO.
The next Spider-Man is out directly after Avengers 4 and it takes plates minutes after that movies story. So it'll probably due huge numbers thanks to that like Iron Man 3 did from riding off of Avengers 1.
After posting that I noticed the 2019 release date for the Spider-sequel. Don't know how happy with that I am, but I thoroughly enjoyed this and I guess they need to blast out high school themed sequels quickly before the main actors look too old, so I guess it's no bad thing.
I imagine it'll be every 2 years probably. Although the Marvel and Sony contract ends after the second movie. Sony already have spin-offs in the works with a bunch of characters to set up a universe again

Hopefully both Spider-Mans movies are profitable and the contract gets extended... or even better Sony movies go bankrupt.
