According to Variety, Holland’s price should go far beyond what it has already paid for independent films with large budgets. While the former actor reportedly earned between $5 million and $10 million for a starring role in a studio film, his salary is now set to rise to eight figures.
The Netherlands is increasingly attracting directors, so they may want to cut other costs to ensure participation. Variety also notes that Hollywood’s most famous men are between 40 and 70 years old, making Holland perfect for the new generation of movie stars.
The news of potentially higher wages in the Netherlands following the global success of Spider-Man: No Way Home comes as no surprise. The film had a successful opening weekend with $253 million in the United States and $587.2 million worldwide. No Way Home recently crossed the $1 billion mark at the box office, the first film to do so in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. That hit came after just 12 days in theaters, making it the third-fastest movie to achieve this with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
No Way Home closes the Spider-Man Holland trilogy after Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, which critics and fans received. While Holland’s future as Spider-Man at MCU is unknown, Marvel Studios President and CEO Kevin Feige recently confirmed that a new Spider-Man movie is on the way, adding: “[Producer] Amy [Pascal] and me and Disney and Sony we’re talking about – yes, we’re starting to develop the rest of the story. ”
Spider-Man: No Way Home has received rave reviews from fans and critics, many of whom have cited the film’s heart, the wide range and incredible successes of Dutch filmmakers, Zendayas, and the returning artists Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina. The film currently has a 98% significant audience for Rotten Tomatoes with over 25,000 genuine reviews.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is in theaters now.
