Spider-Man: No Way Home remains the big-ticket movie for Marvel Studios as it inches closer to its December 17 debut, and the hype train for its arrival only continues to pick up steam by the day. With the threequel's promotional tour now moving at a breakneck pace, fans and critics alike are on the edge of their seats waiting to see what Marvel and Sony have in store for this story.
Early box office predictions for No Way Home have it sitting as easily the biggest MCU movie of 2021, and it's in line to break pandemic-era milestones once it arrives. This continues to be the expectation after tickets for the movie officially went on sale worldwide, which led to the internet nearly breaking from the demand raised by this movie.
Fans have already voiced their opinions on just how difficult the purchase process was for No Way Home tickets as nearly every theater website online experienced some sort of crash. Now, that frustration has seemingly manifested in a much more violent fashion thanks to a new video detailing these difficulties.
Fist-Fights Over No Way Home Tickets
Spanish news website diariodemorelos.com shared a video from a Cinépolis theater in Cuernavaca, Mexico showing fans getting into an all-out brawl over tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home on the morning of Monday, November 29.
Two pairs of moviegoers threw punches and kicks at each other in front of the movie theater over tickets to the MCU's next movie, although bystanders managed to break up the fights within about 30 seconds.
The full 62-second video can be seen below:

No Way Home From The Spidey Madness
Spider-Man: No Way Home has already been teased as possibly the biggest movie event of the year, which is proving to be 100% true based on events from the past few days.
After tickets officially became available for purchase, eBay saw listings for up to $25,000 USD as fans did literally whatever it took to secure their seats for this film's opening night. Now, this insanity goes to a new level as some fans have resorted to violence in order to get their reserved spot for one of No Way Home's first showings.
Considering the hype that's built up around No Way Home, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures are in for a movie event unlike anything the world has seen since Avengers: Endgame. While the hope is that the pursuit of tickets for the film won't result in any more violence, fans will still be taking extreme measures to make sure they see what the studios have to offer as quickly as possible.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will debut in theaters on December 17, 2021.
