Spider-Man Movies: Where to Stream Exclusively, First Photos Leaked
Spider-Man: No Way Home is on course to swing into theaters this December 17th.
Where the Spider-Man is Exclusively Aired?
That’s not the worst thing in the world, but there may be bigger consequences to this Sony/Netflix arrangement. Presumably, it means that Spider-Man can’t show up in any of Marvel Studios’ Disney Plus productions. That could be a major hindrance in Peter Parker’s role in the MCU from now on as we know that the House of Ideas is looking at streaming as their primary outlet these days. Spidey’s not leaving the franchise again just yet, but his presence may start to be limited.
Spider-Man: No Way Home may be one of the last movies that'll be shown first on TV through Starz, which currently holds the pay-one-window rights to Sony movies. Starz will continue to be the first place on TV to watch any Sony movies released theatrically this year -- currently, that includes the third in the trilogy of films starring Tom Holland as the mild-mannered superhero. No Way Home is slated for theatrical release Dec. 17. Netflix takes over the rights from Starz starting Jan. 1.
Typically, movies licensed in a pay-one window would be available to watch on a streaming service or TV network about nine months after a film's theatrical release. But the last year has seen a dramatic collapse of these windows as the COVID-19 pandemic forced cinemas around the world to close, decimating the box office market for movies. Studios, distributors and theater chains are now in the throes of figuring how long cinemas will enjoy exclusives on new movies when public health restrictions finally open cinemas widely again. Agreements so far indicate movies will never be released the same way they were before the pandemic.
The Hollywood Reporter first revealed the details about the multi-year arrangement with the streaming giant, which gives Netflix an exclusive first pay window licensing deal in the United States. That means the company will have the rights to Sony Pictures titles following both their theatrical and home releases. So, this includes not just the Spider-Man flicks, but the studio’s non-MCU Marvel movies, too, such as the Venom, Morbius and Into the Spider-Verse franchises.
Spider-Man: No Way Home Cast, Photo Leaks and Latest News
Spider-Man: No Way Home cast
The big story of Spider-Man 3 is how old faces are coming back to the MCU. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx will be reprising their roles as Doctor Octopus and Electro.
This has led to speculation that Thomas Haden Church and Willem Dafoe will be back as Sandman and Norman Osborn/Green Goblin — and that Jared Leto's Morbius may make an appearance too. Those who know how to count can see we're only one shy of a Sinister Six at this point.
Our Spider-Sense went into full-tingle, though, when we learned that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were coming back, as their versions of Peter Parker. Later, rumors surfaced of Kristin Dunst coming back as Mary Jane Watson and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy. We also got a bit of proof as to Garfield's return, as a since-deleted social media post puts him in the same room as Tom Holland's stunt double.
The latest rumor, though, posits that J.K. Simmons will play two versions of media mogul J. Jonah Jameson in No Way Home. One will run the Bugle, the other heads an online news channel (like in the Spider-Man video games).
This all made a little more sense when MCU head honcho Kevin Feige revealed that the new Doctor Strange movie will connect to the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, at the December 2020 Disney Investors Day event. A new report claims that Spider-Man 3 is filming at a makeshift version of Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum, which gives more reason to expect the good doctor to appear. This all tips Sony's hand for how we get these different Spider-Men at the same time, which will make sense to anyone who's seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
The returning cast is as follows:
Tom Holland as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man
Zendaya as MJ
Marisa Tomei as May Parker
Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds
Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson
