Tickets for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ have proved to be a tough purchase for Marvel fans, as cinema websites in the UK and US crashed due to huge demand.
Shortly after going on sale early this morning (November 29), fans shared their frustration on social media about long wait times and their failure to purchase tickets.
Resale tickets have now emerged on eBay, with prices ranging from $200 (£150) to $25,000 (£18,700).
The user who listed the tickets for the top price did not state how many tickets they were offering, but wrote: “If you know you know.”
Frustrated fans commented under a tweet from the film’s account, citing one hour wait times and crashing apps.
ComicBook.com host and producer Brandon Davis shared a screenshot of the $25,000 dollar listing, quipping “really a steal, at this point”.
One Twitter user commented: “You’d be surprised what people would pay when they’re desperate. Especially when they’re desperate AND wealthy.”
Another added: “Imagine being the person who thinks a ticket for a movie which will easily become available in like a day or two is worth that much.”
Earlier this month a new trailer for the anticipated third instalment to the franchise was released, teasing the return of Alfred Molina’s Doctor Octopus, Willem Defoe’s Green Goblin and Jamie Foxx as Electro.
There has been intense speculation that other Spider-Man characters from the series would re-appear in this film – specifically Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire.
Despite both saying they wouldn’t be returning, there are still rumours and fan theories that they will return.
Tom Holland has recently called ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ “dark” and “brutal”, saying it is “not fun” to watch.
“What people will be really surprised about is that it’s not fun, this film,” Holland told Total Film. “It’s dark and it’s sad, and it’s going to be really affecting.”
He added: “You’re going to see characters that you love go through things that you would never wish for them to go through. And I was just really excited to kind of lean into that side of Peter Parker.”
‘Spider-Man: No Way From Home’ will be released in cinemas on December 17.
