Spider-Man films swing on to Disney+ UK
James R | On 14, Jun 2022
With Spider-Man: No Way Home heading back into cinemas this summer for an extended “More Fun Stuff Version”, Marvel and Sony are also teaming up to thwip more Spidey entertainment into your living room too.
Spidey’s live-action feature film outings will be making their Disney+ debut in the UK and Ireland later this month, as part of a new deal between Disney and Sony Pictures. Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) will all be available to stream on Disney+. Sam Raimi’s original films starring Tobey Maguire, along with Marc Webb’s two follow-ups starring Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland’s first solo outing in the Spidey suit, arrive on 17th June – just as Raimi’s Doctor Strange sequel also heads to Disney+ this summer. The only mystery is the absence of Spider-Man 3 in the line-up, which will presumably swing onto the service at a later date. (It is currently available to stream on Netflix UK.)
The release of the additional Spider-Man films marks the continuing and growing partnership between Marvel and Sony, with additional titles from Sony Pictures’ film and television library also set to land on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland later this year.
