The original live-action Spider-Man trilogy is headed to the streaming platform, Disney Plus.
Well, actually, the Spider-Man movies starring Tobey Maguire which began in 2002 weren't the first webbed superhero movies. That mantel belongs to Spider-Man (1977).
Seriously, Spider-Man (1977) is wonderfully strange. If I’ve piqued your interest, you can check it out here. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Anyway, let’s get back on track, shall we?
As reported by The Verge, from today (21 April), Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007), starring Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi are coming to Dinsey Plus.
What’s more, from 12 May, we’ll also be treated to the arrival of Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland as well as the 2018 Venom movie starring Tom Hardy. It’s a shame that we won’t be seeing the two Toms battle it out in the MCU anytime soon, but this will have to do for now.
Having all Spider-Man movies on Disney Plus isn't as straightforward as you would hope. Despite Disney owning Marvel Entertainment, in a complicated deal, Sony owns the movie rights to Spider-Man. Hopefully one day we’ll see all Spider-Man movies on Disney Plus, including Into the Spider-Verse, we just wouldn't recommend holding your breath.
The Spider-Man movies coming to Disney Plus comes after it was announced in March 2023 that the Sam Raimi trilogy is also coming to Netflix. So all in all, we have plenty of friendly-neighbourhood goodness to look forward to.
In other movie news, Marvel Cinematic Universe chief Kevin Feige has all but confirmed that a fourth Spider-Man movie starring Tom Holland is on the way. However, the movie might not arrive until at least 2025.
In related gaming news, reputable journalist, Jason Schierer added further validation in regards to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac Games releasing for PlayStation 5 this coming September.
