"There's a really fantastic picture from the comics where Spider-Man is sitting on a lamppost staring at Hulk, and I think that could be a really... there's so many jokes you can make about the big green guy, so I think that would be a lot of fun".

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" opened this weekend to a jaw-dropping $125 million.

In its second weekend, TriStar, MRC, Working Title, Big Talk, and Sony's "Baby Driver" is expected to pick up another $12.5 million after making off with a almost $4 million heist from 3,226 locations on Friday.
