Tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home went up Monday morning and quickly broke the internet. But as with every hot ticket item this year, scalpers were quick to offer solutions for insane markups.
With movie ticket sites collapsing under demand, some people turned to resellers to get tickets for the opening night for the upcoming Spider-Man movie. But the convenience doesn’t come cheap, as Scalper Spider-Man: No Way Home tickets sell for thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars.

According to eBay’s Sold Offers, some tickets went on sale for up to $ 25,000, although an offer sold merely indicated that someone agreed to buy a Spider-Man: No Way Home ticket for that much.
Other offers sold for up to $ 100 per ticket. While movie tickets are certainly more expensive than they were years ago, it still seems excessive to pay hundreds of dollars for a $ 20 movie ticket, even for opening night tickets.
Spider-Man: No Way Home tickets are just the newest items scalpers are putting on sale at huge markups alongside still hard-to-find consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the third film in the Tom Holland “Home” trilogy, although producer Amy Pascal revealed that Sony and Marvel are inventing a new Spider-Man trilogy that will see Holland return.
The hype for No Way Home is in full swing, especially as it is set to bring in characters from other Spider-Man films like Doc Ock, Electro, Green Goblin, and more. It is speculated that other Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are also returning, although everyone involved has avoided answering whether or not this is true.
That hasn’t stopped the internet from constantly asking Andrew Garfield if he’s returning as Spider-Man. While constantly evading the question, Garfield revealed that Tobey Maguire is his favorite Spider-Man (along with everyone else who wore the suit).
