Critics did not enjoy Venom, but audiences liked it better, and that’s proven yet again now that the movie has passed another massive box office milestone. The movie has now passed $800 million globally. It’s made $211.7 million in the US and $610.8 million internationally for a total of $822.5 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
That makes it the fifth biggest movie of 2018, only trailing The Incredibles 2 ($1.2 billion), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($1.3 billion), Black Panther ($1.34 billion), and Avengers: Infinity War ($2 billion).
In another superhero movie comparison, Venom also climbs past 2017’s Wonder Woman, which made $821.9 million during its theatrical run.
Just recently, production company Sony announced the release dates for two Spider-Man spinoff movies, and one of them is probably Venom 2.
The end credits bonus scene in Venom strongly hints at the sequel and its main villain–you can read GameSpot’s end-credits scene breakdown here to learn more. Director Ruben Fleischer told GameSpot that this scene was meant to lay the groundwork for Venom 2.
