Spider-Man is part of Marvel, but does not exist on Disney+ as the rights to Spider-Man belong to Sony, but in some regions an agreement has been signed between the two companies to integrate the films into the platform.
Spider-Man may be Marvel, he doesn’t exist in Disney’s Marvel universe and for good reason, the rights belong to Sony and given the success of Spider-Man’s latest movies and games, the Japanese firm is willing to part with it. It’s not ready.
However, it can be disappointing for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to not be able to watch Spider-Man movies like other superhero movies. You’ll have to juggle between platforms since Spider-Man became available on Netflix, but that’s starting to change.
A deal that will be available in France
Indeed, according to Digital TV Europe, Disney has signed a deal with Sony to offer the Spider-Man: Homecoming movies as well as four other Spider-Man movies on the platform starting June 17th. If we thought the deal was limited to the United Kingdom, it’s also available in France.
In addition, other titles to be released in SVoD this year will be offered exclusively on Disney+, including Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
As a reminder, Sony has opted not to offer a platform to offer its titles, but prefers to license them directly to others. And it is Netflix that currently has the rights to Spider-Man, but is turning it in favor of its rival that will thus bring the entire Marvel universe together.
