Disney inks an immense Sony arrangement to carry Arachnid Man and different movies to Disney In addition to and Hulu

 Disney and Sony Pictures have marked a multi-year "content authorizing understanding" that will bring new Sony dramatic deliveries, beginning with its 2022 movies




 Disney-possessed stages. The arrangement additionally gives Disney the rights to large numbers of Sony's more seasoned movies, including Arachnid Man titles — implying that motion pictures featuring the web-slinger, which are strikingly missing from Disney In addition to's assortment of Wonder films, could in the end advance toward the real time feature.


Sony’s theatrical releases from 2022 through 2026 are included in the deal, and Disney will get access to them following their “Pay 1 TV window.” Starting in 2022, that window, which follows a film’s theatrical and home video runs, will be owned by Netflix, thanks to a deal 


announced earlier this month

(That means new Sony films will hit theaters first, then paid rentals and purchases, then Netflix, and then finally head over to Disney platforms, possibly including Disney Plus.)

So even though Disney and Sony’s deal means that Disney won’t have new Spider-Man films right after their theatrical runs, the company will get to include them in its streaming catalogue over the long term — something that Disney arguably values more.

Giving people access to yet another set of movies in its ever-growing collection of Marvel properties could give people more reason to subscribe to Disney Plus. The company continues to

connect the many Marvel films and shows to each other

and it’s continuing to invest heavily in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

courting big names for future series

to give you even more reasons to keep your subscription.



That all said, if Spider-Man films do make their way to Disney Plus, that won’t make Disney’s infinity gauntlet of films complete: 2008’s The Incredible Hulk (the one starring Edward Norton as the Hulk) would still not be available on the service. Unless Disney strikes some sort of deal with Universal, that is.


Other Sony Pictures properties, such as Jumanji and Hotel Transylvania, are also included in the deal, according to a press release. Disney’s Hulu will also have access to “a significant number of library titles” as soon as this June, according to the release.
