Four Spider-Man Movies Are Now Streaming on Disney+, With One More on the Way


Although Spider-Man has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, it’s already known what’s the issue with the character when fans want to watch Spider-Man movies on streaming services. As we all know, The Walt Disney Company is the owner of Marvel Studios, and therefore every MCU movie is available to stream on Disney+, right?

Well, mostly. Even though Marvel Studios has a deal to use characters like Spider-Man and Hulk in the MCU, the studio does not hold the rights for their solo movies, so there might be a problem when you’re trying to find The Incredible Hulk, which Universal Pictures distributed, and Spider-Man movies which Sony Pictures distributed. Well, there’s still a problem with finding The Incredible Hulk, but the Spider-Man problem is now partially solved. Not fully yet, but something is better than nothing, right?

Disney has officially announced that Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, starring Tobey Maguire, was added to the roster of movies you can stream on Disney+ on April 21, 2023. The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, has also been added to the streaming service. Additionally, Disney announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming, the first movie of the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland, will be added to Disney+ on May 12, along with Venom, starring Tom Hardy, the first movie of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe.

So, after May 12, the only Spider-Man movies that will still be absent from Disney+ are The Amazing Spider-Man 2, starring Andrew Garfield; Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home, starring Tom Holland; and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the first animated movie of the Spider-Man franchise. The first Venom movie starring Tom Hardy will be streaming on Disney+ on May 12, but there’s no word on its sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage.


All 3 Miles Morales Spider-Man Movies in Order

While it can be understandable that Spider-Man movies with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were not on Disney+ since those were made solely by Sony, it’s interesting to fans how Spider-Man movies with Tom Holland, which are officially set in the MCU and each has guest stars from the Disney-owned franchise, couldn’t find their way to MCU’s official streamer. Not to mention that Spider-Man also guest starred in other MCU movies, which can be streamed on Disney+ just like the other MCU movies that were distributed solely by The Walt Disney Company.

After The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffered critical and commercial disappointment when it was released in 2014, Sony Pictures made a deal with Marvel Studios to bring the character to the MCU, but Marvel Studios would serve only as the production company, while Sony Pictures would keep the distribution rights. Sony, unlike Disney, doesn’t have its own official streaming service, so it can be tough for some fans to find Spider-Man movies for a rewatch unless you have it on Blu-Ray at home.

The latest Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, assembled all three live-action Spider-Man actors for the crossover movie every Spider-Man fan dreamed of. The movie grossed almost $2 billion worldwide, and Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige announced that the company’s deal with Sony would continue. The fourth Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland is currently in development, although there’s no word when it might be released.

Now, the original Spider-Man trilogy and the first The Amazing Spider-Man movie can now be streamed on Disney+. Spider-Man: Homecoming and the first Venom movie will be available on Disney+ on May 12.
