Five Spider-Man movies are coming to Disney+ in the UK this week

The Disney+ library contains nearly every movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a few notable exceptions. In the same way The Incredible Hulkthe full Jon Watts Spider Man the trilogy is missing from the streamer due to the films being distributed by Sony. However, Disney+ viewers across the pond will soon have the chance to watch nearly all of the web-slinger’s live-action adventures. Starting June 17, Sam Raimi’s Spider Man and Spiderman 2both amazing spider man movies, and Spider-Man: Homecoming will be added to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland. Disney has not given a word on the status of Spiderman 3, Spider-Man: Far From HomeWhere Spider-Man: No Coming Homebut the fact that the other five movies are heading to Disney+ is a huge blow for the House of Mouse.


Disney has been working to get Sony movies on its streamer for a while and signed a licensing deal with the studio last year. Starting with Sony’s 2022 slate, the features will head to Disney+ in the US after first running on Netflix, which was an additional deal Sony struck around the same time as its Disney pact. Unlike Disney, Paramount, or Warner, Sony is a studio that doesn’t have a direct tie to a streaming service, so outside deals have to be made to make its movies available to a wider audience. Seen the collaboration between Disney and Sony on the MCU Spider Man movies, it makes sense for the companies to come together for the licensing deal.

What’s interesting, however, is that the deal is for the US only and starts with Sony’s 2022 releases. put five Spider Man movies on the UK version of Disney+ appear to be a separate decision unless Disney and Sony have changed the original terms of their contract. Nevertheless, it will be an exciting time for European subscribers to be able to have multiple Spider Man movies available alongside almost every other MCU release.

Spider-Man’s future in the MCU is unclear

As for the future of the Disney and Sony partnership, things are a bit at a standstill now that No coming home came and went. The film marked the end of Tom Holland’s first trilogy as a wall-crawling robot, and it’s unclear when the actor will don his spider costume next. Sony chief Tom Rothman wants to keep the franchise going, which is completely understandable after No coming home grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide. Rothman recently said Sony hopes Watts, Holland and Zendaya all return for a fourth Spider Man movie, but neither Sony nor Disney have officially announced anything regarding the character’s MCU future.

On a smaller scale, Marvel Studios is working on Spider-Man: Year One, an animated series made for Disney+. The show will focus on Peter Parker’s debut as Spider-Man and will be set in the MCU, but it’s unclear if any of the live-action actors will return to voice their characters. Speaking of Disney+, there’s no indication that any of the MCUs Spider Man the movies are coming to the US version of the streamer soon. Given Sony’s deal with Disney, all upcoming entries in the Dutch franchise would eventually be added to Disney+, but the status of the other films is uncertain. Hopefully additional deals can be made in the near future to make the MCU more complete on Disney+.
