Tom Holland is easily the best Peter Parker out there, so the fact that Spider-Man: Far From Home is now the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie is incredible. Nearly grossing $1 billion dollars, Spider-Man: Far From Home is raking in the cash, and honestly, it should. A tale of Peter Parker coping with the loss of his mentor while just trying to be a teenager, the movie has a lot of themes that have made the Marvel Cinematic Universe stand out against other superhero franchises.

But, does it deserve to be the best Spider-Man? Honestly, yes, it does. This is the version of Peter Parker that many of us have been waiting to see in a live-action movie. Now that he’s there, we’re all going to go and see it as much as possible, so yes, I think it does deserve to be the highest-grossing of them. Now, throwing in Spider-Verse is a different story.

With movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse being one of the best movies out of 2018, it’s clear that we don’t have Spider-Man fatigue, and we probably never will—or at least I won’t. If I have to go and single-handedly make all these movies box office hits, I’ll do it. Either way though, the world loves the web-slinger, and with the success of Far From Home, I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing even more Tom Holland Parker movies coming out. Or at least I hope so.

Here are some other things we saw out there today:

  • Scarlett Johannson’s engagement ring is brown, just like the characters she wants to play. (via Huffpost
  • Boris Johnson is going to be the new Prime Minister, and Trump approves, so that’s all you really need to know. (via Boing Boing

  • Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series has its first cast member! (via io9)
  • Time to go to Virginia so we can all see some Bob Ross paintings. I’ll get the rental van. (via Atlas Obscura)
