The excitement for the next MCU movie is colossal. With the infinity of rumors, alleged leaks and promotional surprises, everything indicates that the “Spider-verse” it will be a reality in the multi-million dollar superhero franchise. However, regardless of the presence of such memorable villains as Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin – again played by Alfred Molina and Willem Dafoe – uncertainty still prevails as to whether Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will accompany Tom Holland in the next arachnid film. And if it’s true, countless fans yearn to be the first to find out. Therefore, the tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home they have been the most coveted goods of the last hours …
But “at what cost?” Gamora would ask. Well, fallen servants, fights to blows and resales at outrageous prices.
When searching for “spider-man tickets” in Facebook’s Marketplace, users will notice that, for example, a ticket for the movie in a Cinépolis theater in Toluca —the very first show— has a high cost of $ 300 pesos. But apparently there are much worse cases. According to reports from Engadget, the prices per ticket that circulate in that social network reach a thousand pesos. On the other hand, a note from Merca2.0 states that on the Mercado Libre platform, tickets were found for resale with costs ranging from five thousand to twenty thousand pesos.
And if you thought that only resellers in Mexico are so ungrateful, think twice. Last Monday, a Twitter user shared a screenshot where it exhibits the exorbitant prices for functions of Spider-Man: No Way Home in United States. The payment required to obtain two tickets varies between $ 700, $ 900 and $ 1,500. “You must be fucking me,” writes the aforementioned surfer at the bottom of the image. Honestly, is there anyone who would pay such an amount of money just to find out, before anyone else, what hit Lizard in the face?
Such blatant resale happened hours after a chaotic presale. From the first minute of Monday, November 29, the very first tickets were released for the inaugural functions of Spider-Man: No Way Home in Mexico. However, demand reached stratospheric levels to the point of knocking out the Cinépolis and Cinemex websites. At six o’clock in the afternoon on Tuesday, November 30, it was still impossible to enter cinepolis.com because it was “temporarily under maintenance.”
Secondly, there are also reports about some “lucky” users who apparently were able to purchase online during the pre-sale. However, it turns out that no electronic ticket was generated, despite the fact that they were charged.
Spider-Man: No Way Home It will hit Mexican theaters on December 15. Directed by Jon Watts, with a cast consisting of Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina, among others.
The Overpriced Ticket Resale entry for Spider-Man: No Road Home was first featured on Cinema PREMIERE.
