Last year, Disney made a deal with Sony Pictures that has brought many of the “Spider-Man” films featuring Tom Holland, Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield, to Disney+ around the world. However, the international availability of these films is in constant flux due to the unique deal that sees many of the films moving around between different platforms.
Following the recent loss of “Venom”, two more films have been removed from Disney+ today, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”. They’re now available to view on Sky TV.
Unfortunately, since these films are created and distributed by Sony Pictures, Disney has no control over when or if these films will be returned to Disney+ in the United Kingdom. The films are still available on Disney+ in other countries around the world.

With Disney+ licensing more films and shows from other companies, we will continue to see titles removed from Disney+, but no doubt, losing “Spider-Man” films hurts subscribers even more! Unlike other streaming services, Disney+ doesn’t inform subscribers in advance. What do you think of these removals? Let us know on social media.
