     Many people enjoyed the new Marvel movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. Has it become number 1?  Abcnews.go.com states, “In the record books, ‘No Way Home’ is approaching the third-highest grossing film in North America, ‘Avatar’ ($760 million). It also added $21.1 million overseas to pass $1 billion internationally.” Avatar still remains the most significant movie in the world. Many more highly anticipated movies like The Batman, Jurassic World: Dominion, and Top Gun: Maverick await in the coming months and are expected to topple No Way Home’s high ratings and high views. This iconic Marvel movie was written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. These  two writers have also  written other movies  such as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Spider-Man: Homecoming, The LEGO Batman Movie, Igor, and The Girl Next Door. Yardbarker.com states, ”It has made over $1.5 billion, making it the first movie to make over a billion dollars worldwide since ‘The Rise of Skywalker.’ ‘No Way Home’ is one of the top-10 highest-grossing movies ever, and it’s the highest-grossing film Sony has ever put out.”

     On Yardbarker.com it also states, “When they were making the first of the Tom Holland “Spider-Man” movies, they had big plans. This sequel was already planned while “Spider-Man:

Homecoming” was still in production. Originally, though, it wasn’t going to be a story that brought back villains from Spider-Man’s past across the franchises. Instead, screenwriters Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers were thinking that Kraven the Hunter would be the main villain. In the end, he wasn’t in the movie at all.” 

     Shane Gatewood, 7th grader and Co-Captain of the Marvel club states, “My favorite part was when all the Spider-Men came in and worked together.”
