Disney + will not have Sony Spider-Man movies
It is unlikely that Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far from home join Disney + anytime soon, as they belong to Sony, despite being co-produced by Marvel Studios.
“We love our friends at Sony, but we don’t plan to have the live-action Spider-Man movies on Disney +,” explains Ricky Strauss, head of content and marketing, at The Verge. “We will have all of the Spider-Man animations we did … but who knows what might happen in the future?”
Disney + has old series and movies, ranging from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) until titles launched this year. There is also original content, such as The Mandalorian, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and a remake of The Lady and the Tramp. The series will have new episodes every Friday.
The streaming service costs $ 6.99 a month or $ 69.90 a year in the U.S. The plan includes 4K HDR and up to four simultaneous streams. All types of devices are supported: iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku, web browser (desktop), Playstation 4, Xbox One and smart TVs from LG (webOS) and Samsung (Tizen ).
In Brazil, Disney + is scheduled to be launched in November 2020. Here, Amazon Prime Video will have exclusivity on streaming movies like Toy Story 4, The Lion King and Avengers: Endgame until next year.
