Why Are The Spider-Man Movies Not on Disney Plus?

Spider-Man is one of the most popular superhero characters of all time. So, it’s natural that fans would want to watch the Spiderman movies on Disney Plus. However, the Spider-Man movies are not currently available on Disney Plus.

Why are Spider-Man Movies Missing on Disney Plus?

The Spider-Man movies are not currently available on Disney Plus because they are not owned by Disney. The Spider-Man movies are owned by Sony Pictures, so they would need to strike a deal with Sony in order to add the movies to Disney Plus. That’s why you can find the Spider-Man movies on Sony’s streaming service, Crackle.

Some fans have speculated that Disney and Sony were not able to come to an agreement about licensing the Spiderman movies for Disney Plus. However, we don’t know for sure since neither company has made a public statement about it.

It’s possible that Disney is waiting to add the Spiderman movies to Disney Plus until after the release of the upcoming Spiderman movie, “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” This would make sense from a marketing standpoint, as it would give fans a reason to subscribe to Disney Plus in order to watch the new Spider-Man movie.

There’s a likelihood that the Spider-Man movies will eventually be added to Disney Plus, but we don’t have any confirmation about that at this time. In the meantime, fans of Spider-Man will just have to watch the movies on Crackle or another streaming service.

Spider-Man is still a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) despite the fact that the Spider-Man movies are not currently available on Disney Plus. This is because Spider-Man is jointly owned by Disney and Sony.

How Disney and Sony jointly owns Spider-Man

Disney and Sony have a joint ownership agreement for Spider-Man. This means that Disney owns the rights to Spider-Man for use in their Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, while Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man for use in their own movies.

The Spiderman character was originally created by Marvel Comics, which is now owned by Disney. However, the movie rights to Spider-Man were sold to Sony Pictures in the 1990s. This is why Sony has been able to make Spider-Man movies without involving Disney.

In 2015, Disney and Sony struck a deal that would allow Spider-Man to appear in MCU movies such as “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” Under the terms of the deal, Sony would finance, distribute, and own the Spider-Man movies, while Disney would receive a percentage of the box office gross.

The joint ownership agreement between Disney and Sony has been beneficial for both companies. It has allowed Spider-Man to be introduced to a wider audience through the MCU movies, while also giving Sony the opportunity to make their own Spider-Man movies.

However, the Spiderman movies are not currently available on Disney Plus because they are owned by Sony. This means that Disney would need to reach a deal with Sony in order to add the movies to their streaming service.

In any case, it’s currently not possible to watch the Spiderman movies on Disney Plus. However, that could change in the future if Disney is able to strike a deal with Sony or if they wait until after the release of “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
