Spider-Man Far From Home extended cut

After two uninspired Amazing Spider-Man movies, Sony was scrambling to find a solution to its Spider-Man problem. The answer was to team up with Marvel Studios, a company which instantly rebooted the character and incorporated the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I’m guessing this decision wasn’t easy for the Sony brass (it couldn’t have been pleasant to essentially acknowledge that they didn’t know what they were doing with one of their biggest characters), but it’s paid off in a huge way: this summer’s Spider-Man: Far From Home has now officially become not only the most lucrative Spider-Man movie ever, but the highest-grossing movie in Sony Pictures’ entire 95-year history.
