When Is “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” Released?
“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is being released exclusively in cinemas on June 2nd, 2023.
When Will “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” Be On Disney+?
Currently, no official Disney+ release date has yet been announced.
Since the film is created and distributed by Sony Pictures, it means the movie won’t automatically come to Disney+ once it completes its theatrical run.
But, back in 2021, Disney and Sony announced a multi-year content licensing agreement for U.S. streaming and TV rights to Sony Pictures’ new theatrical releases across Disney’s vast portfolio of platforms, including its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, as well as linear entertainment networks including ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX and National Geographic. The deal covers theatrical releases from 2022-2026, which includes “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” and begins for each film following its Pay 1 TV window on Netflix. The agreement builds upon the companies’ prior arrangement, which saw SPE movies licensed to FX in the post-Pay 1 TV window.
The deal also grants rights to many of Sony’s iconic library titles, ranging from the “Jumanji” and “Hotel Transylvania” franchises to Sony Pictures’ Universe of Marvel Characters films, including Spider-Man. This gives Disney enormous programming potential across its platforms and makes them key destinations for a robust collection of Spider-Man films.
So with this deal in place, it means “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” won’t come to Disney+ in the United States until at least two years after the initial theatrical release, so that’s the summer of 2025.
Internationally, things are a little more complicated, since Disney doesn’t have a similar deal with Sony for its Pay 2 window. However, the two companies have made a deal to bring the Spider-Man films, including “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” onto Disney+ in many countries. But it could be years if “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is ever released on Disney+ internationally.
