Sony's upcoming movies have a new home, thanks to a recently inked distribution deal with Netflix that will bring several major releases to the popular streaming service. The five-year deal means that all of Sony's theatrical releases, starting in 2022, will be available exclusively on Netflix - including the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequels, video game adaptation Uncharted, and the upcoming Marvel movie Morbius, starring Jared Leto.

The Netflix deal will take effect after Sony's current deal with Starz expires, and only applies to movies released from 2022 onwards. That means that Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home aren't included in the deal, but future Venom and Spider-Man sequels will be.

After the coronavirus pandemic forced the closure of theaters across the globe, streaming has become more important than ever as a way for audiences to enjoy the latest movie releases. Here's a look forward at all the Sony movies that will be coming to Netflix in 2022 - and beyond.

Uncharted

Director: Ruben Fleischer

Cast: Tom Holland, Mark Whalberg, Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle

Genre: Action, Adventure

Theatrical Release Date: February 18th, 2022 | Estimated Netflix Release Date: November 2022

With an incredible and extensive library of video games, Sony has no shortage of games ready and waiting to be adapted into full feature-length movies. So, 14 years after the debut of the Uncharted franchise on the PlayStation 3, Nathan Drake is finally coming to life on the big screen.

Opting to go with a younger Nathan Drake, popular Spider-Man actor Tom Holland will take on the role, with Mark Whalberg portraying the role of Drake’s mentor Sully.

The first installment of the franchise will take place before the events of the video games, and will tell the story of Nathan Drake in his youth and how he came to meet and befriend Sully.

Escape Room 2

Director: Adam Robitel

Cast: Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Isabelle Fuhrman, Thomas Cocquerel, Holland Roden

Genre: Action, Adventure, Horror

Theatrical Release Date: January 7th, 2022 | Estimated Netflix Release Date: October 2022

Sony capitalized on the growing popularity of Escape Rooms but added a sinister and deadly twist to the concept. The first film made over $155.7 million worldwide, and only a shoestring budget of $9 million. It’s a no-brainer why Sony continues to invest in the franchise when it’s already shown to make a quick and easy profit.

Escape Room 2 is the first of two Sony Pictures movies to arrive on Netflix in October 2022.

After surviving the first deadly game, Zoey and Ben will be forced into an even deadlier game by the puzzle master, with an even lower chance of surviving the horror that waits for them.

Morbius

Director: Daniel Espinosa

Cast: Jared Leto, Jared Harris, Michael Keaton, Matt Smith, Simon Stroud

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama

Theatrical Release Date: January 21st, 2022 | Estimated Netflix Release Date: October 2022

Even though Sony and Marvel Studios came to an agreement with adding Spider-Man to the MCU, the studio still reserves the right to use the large library of characters from the web-slinger. This is what lead to the creation of the Venom movie, and now with Morbius the establishment of Sony’s own cinematic universe within the MCU.

While Sony occupying its own space within the realms of the MCU may sound confusing, the gaps between the two are starting to be bridged together, and plans for a future Sinister Six film are looking more and more likely.

It’s been five years since Jared Leto’s disastrous appearance as the Joker in the Suicide Squad, so the academy-award-winning actor will be hoping to find success in a rival superhero franchise instead.

Michael Morbius, a brilliant scientist plagued by a rare blood disease tries to cure himself but inadvertently infects himself with Vampirism.

The fourth film of the Jumanji franchise is still in the early stages of development, which means filming may not begin for a significant period of time. There’s also no confirmation that the cast of the previous two films will be returning to reprise their roles, but we’d definitely expect to learn more in the coming months, especially once filming on Black Adam is over for Dwayne Johnson.

The sky is only limited by imagination, and a film budget for the upcoming animated Spider-Man sequel, and if it’s anything like its predecessor then we are all in for an amazing time.

Little is currently known about the plot of the Spider-Verse movie, but at the very least we’re expecting to see even more famous variations of the webbed wonder.

With the film still planned to premiere in October 2022, subscribers will have to wait until the Summer of 2023 before it arrives on the Netflix library.
