Director Jon Watts' 2017 Marvel Studios film Spider-Man: Homecoming and its 2019 sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home will not be coming to the Disney+ streaming service. At least, certainly not anytime soon.
Though Disney+ features most of Marvel Studios' popular films, it's hard not to notice the absence of the two Tom Holland-starred Spider-Man flicks. While some hoped the films would eventually come to the streaming service, that does not appear to be in the cards for the foreseeable future -- likely due to the fact Marvel Studios shares ownership of the films with Sony.
Ricky Strauss, head of content and marketing at Disney+, recently addressed the matter. "We love our friends at Sony, but we don't have any plans to have the live-action Spider-Man movies on Disney+," Strauss told The Verge. "We will have all the Spider-Man animated shows that we did so they’ll be on there under the Marvel banner. But who knows what can happen in the future?"
Jon Watts is said to be directing a third Spider-Man film for Marvel Studios that will see Tom Holland reprise his role as Peter Parker. The film is set to release on July 16, 2021, though no official plot details have been released.
