Where to watch every 'Spider-Man' movie before 'No Way Home' hits theaters
Unlike films featuring other Avengers, movies starring Spider-Man aren't on Disney Plus. Instead, they're spread across multiple streaming services, and some films are only available to rent or buy individually.
Though Marvel Studios owns the big-screen rights to most of its characters, Spider-Man is an exception, which is why it can be tricky to track down "Spider-Man" movies to watch at home. Sony has owned the rights to "Spider-Man" films since 1999.
However, with the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Sony eventually partnered with Disney-led Marvel Studios to reboot the franchise, adding Tom Holland's Peter Parker to the Avengers in "Captain America: Civil War," and producing "Spider-Man: Homecoming," "Far From Home," and "No Way Home" as joint projects.
Earlier this year, Sony and Disney agreed on a larger deal that would bring Sony's theatrical releases to Disney Plus after an initial streaming run on Netflix. That deal will cover films released between 2022 and 2026, and could allow for older films like "Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man" to move to Disney Plus after their Netflix exclusivity ends.
Right now, however, "Spider-Man" movies remain split across streaming services. To make it easier to catch up on previous films before the release of "No Way Home" on December 17, we rounded up details on where to watch every "Spider-Man" movie released so far.
Where to watch every 'Spider-Man' movie
Every "Spider-Man" movie is available to stream at home, but only select movies are available on subscription services. The remaining titles currently require a one-time rental or purchase fee through a video-on-demand retailer, like Vudu, to watch.
Peacock is streaming the three classic "Spider-Man" films starring Tobey Maguire and directed by "Evil Dead" creator Sam Raimi. Though Peacock has a free plan with access to select movies, you need a Premium subscription ($5/month) to watch the "Spider-Man" films.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" movies starring Andrew Garfield aren't included on a subscription service. The first movie is available to rent or buy, while "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" can be streamed via the FX Now app if you have a pay-TV provider with the FX channel. Two more "Spider-Man" spinoff movies, "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse" and "Venom" are also available on FX Now.
The MCU "Spider-Man" films with Tom Holland — "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Spider-Man: Far From Home" — currently require you to rent or buy them in order to watch at home. Rental prices start at $3 on services like Vudu and Prime Video. The upcoming "Spider-Man No Way Home" will be released exclusively in theaters on December 17 and it's not yet clear when it will hit home video.
