After disappointing many fans with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it appears the franchise is back on track with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sony/Marvel Studios have screened the movie to test audiences recently and it looks like they like the film so far.

As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, Spider-Man: Homecoming is testing well with audiences. The test audience has scored it in the low 90s.

This is pretty much on par with many Marvel films such as Guardians of the Galaxy and more. It's safe to say the movie won't be as ill received as this week's release of Transformers: The Last Knight.

In the same report, it suggests the movie could open to well over $100 million.

This is a slight increase compared to the $91 million that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received back in 2014. If word of mouth goes well for Homecoming, the opening could be higher.

This movie needs to succeed as the Spider-Man franchise has taken a dip in recent years. Many people are kind of getting sick of all the reboots.

Thankfully, the character's introduction in Captain America: Civil War was seen as a positive thing so this might be a good sign for Homecoming.

Homecoming is also tracking well on social media since a lot of people keep talking about it.

The character also got a bump last week thanks to a PS4 video game that is due out in 2018. There is also a VR experience being released for Homecoming too.

Sony and Marvel are going all in with the franchise as spin-offs and sequels are being planned for the future. Be prepared to see a lot more of Spider-Man and friends very soon!
