Five Spider-Man movies (and one Venom movie) will hit Disney+ Hotstar on July 1. That includes one of the best superhero movies ever made. On Monday afternoon, the Disney-star-owned streaming service announced the Tobey Maguire-Samramy Spider-Man trilogy — namely Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007) — Will be available soon on Disney+ Hotstar. In addition, Disney+ Hotstar will receive the first Andrew Garfield Spider-Man film, The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), the first standalone Tom Holland Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). year) and the first Tom Hardy symbiote film, Venom (2018).
Of course, for Spider-Man fans, it's odd that it's not a complete series. That's because of other games – Garfield's Second Adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Holland's Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) and Spider-Man: Homeless (2021) 2020), and Hardy's Venom follow-up, Venom: Let Massacre (2021) – all available on Netflix in India. (I don't count Mobius Because its OTT premiere hasn't expired yet. ) which clearly indicates the exclusivity option in the contract. While Toby fans can be delighted to see the full version of his trilogy — it's been on SonyLIV in the past, and Aha of all places now — Garfield and MCU fans can't share that joy.
Except it probably won't stay that way all the time. Disney+ Hotstar's new announcement states that “additional titles in Sony Pictures Studios' library are expected to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar in India later this year.” That's vague and curious. This suggests that the aforementioned missing titles (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Far From Home, No Way Out, and Venom 2) can be joined by others (spidermanSpider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming and venom) on Disney+ Hotstar. Or it might just suggest that non-Marvel movies from Sony Pictures might be on the Disney+ Hotstar. TechnologyShout has contacted Disney+ Hotstar for comment.
India isn't the first market Disney has experimented with adding Spider-Man movies to Disney+. (Animated Spider-Man cartoons have been on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar for a while, but we won't discuss those here.) This first happened in early June, when Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man trilogy, Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man duology and Spider-Man: No Way Home are available on Disney+ in the UK, Canada and elsewhere. As you know, the titles don't match exactly, probably due to regional distribution and licensing agreements. Still, something is better than nothing.
