Spider-Man: No Way Home tickets officially went on sale yesterday on Monday 28th November and countless theatre operators and cinemas worldwide crashed under the demand. Some websites had tickets on sale from midnight and were unable to handle the clamour for tickets, which one industry expert stated hadn’t been seen since Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.
In the US, ticket sellers Fandango, AMC, and Regal Cinemas were reported to be down and thousands of customers were unable to book tickets during the initial rush. AMC Theatres announced through their CEO Adam Aron that the sales were neck and neck currently locked in a battle with the initial presales for Avengers: Endgame.
Industry figures point to the film selling over 3 million tickets in just 24 hours totalling over $35m outselling all other 24 movie ticket sales combined in 2021, and multiplied by 3. The Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios release is certainly shaping up to be an Avengers: Endgame style release.

With rumours and somewhat confirmations that previous ‘Spider-Men’ Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield will fit inside the ‘multiverse’. This multiverse is enacted by Avenger, Dr Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and also sees villains such as The Green Goblin, (William Dafoe) who was in the Spiderman release back in 2001.
Also returning is Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, Thomas Haden Church as Sandman, and Jamie Foxx (from the Garfield movies) as Electro.
