“With the great production, comes the permission.” Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Co-producing both the Spider-Man movies, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, featuring as the lead role, Tom Holland, creating unfathomable obscurity for the Disney to stream at its service as the Sony has also the production rights.
Bringing the entire, the absolute collection of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a new project working with Disney 23 titles to date, to its Disney+ streaming service, sadly, there won’t be any streaming of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Speaking of which, Ricky Strauss, Disney’s head of content and marketing for Disney+, told The Verge at a recent media day in New York there aren’t any plans to bring the two movies over to Disney+.
“We love our friends at Sony, but we don’t have any plans to have the live-action Spider-Man movies on Disney+,” Strauss said. “We will have all the Spider-Man animated shows that we did so they’ll be on there under the Marvel banner. But who knows what can happen?”
Disney surprises the subscribers, announcing the availability of the Avengers: Endgame, on Disney+ one month earlier than expected, tearing up from December 11th to November 12th. Disney’s head of direct-to-consumer services, Kevin Mayer, apprised the press that it was a one-time occurrence where a movie still within its home release window (the three months after a movie leaves theatres) would be cut short.
The new communication of multiple deals with MCU brought to Disney a lot of Marvel movies at the last-minute deal during their launch, according to Disney executive, explaining about the several marvel title along with Endgame in the Disney+. But Spiderman won’t be on the market for streaming with them.
Not only Sony’s Spider-man movies but Netflix is also acting as a blockade for Disney+ at launch. Movies like Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Avengers: Infinity War and Thor: Ragnarok, are still in contract with Netflix. With early 2020, the four movies will be accessible to the Disney+ subscribers.
Disney+ subscribers can also do binge-watch the seven Skywalker saga except for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Eventually, all Disney IP will end up on Disney+, according to executives. It’s just going to take some time — and patience — for rights to revert to themselves.
