With the news that Disney has signed a new deal with Sony Pictures that includes U.S. Rights to new Theatrical Releases from 2022-2026 following their Pay 1 TV Window and library titles from Sony Pictures for Disney’s Streaming Services including Disney+ and Hulu and Linear Networks such as ABC, FX and Freeform.
This opens up Disney+ to get access to lots of Marvel films created by Sony Pictures. It’s important to note that for brand new films that are released between 2022 and 2026, they will still have to go through their respected window releases, which means going through cinemas, then video on demand platforms before heading to Netflix. So it’s important to note that films could take a couple of years between new films theatrical release and their release on Disney+ in the US. Movies released before the end of December 2021, will have a different schedule and details haven’t yet been revealed.
Here’s a look at all the Sony Marvel films that at some point in the future, will be coming to Disney+ in the United States.
After being bitten by a genetically altered spider, nerdy high school student Peter Parker is endowed with amazing powers to become the Amazing superhero known as Spider-Man.
Peter Parker is going through a major identity crisis. Burned out from being Spider-Man, he decides to shelve his superhero alter ego, which leaves the city suffering in the wake of carnage left by the evil Doc Ock. In the meantime, Parker still can’t act on his feelings for Mary Jane Watson, a girl he’s loved since childhood.
The seemingly invincible Spider-Man goes up against an all-new crop of villains—including the shape-shifting Sandman. While Spider-Man’s superpowers are altered by an alien organism, his alter ego, Peter Parker, deals with nemesis Eddie Brock and also gets caught up in a love triangle.
Peter Parker is an outcast high schooler abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors, his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
