Disney and Sony have inked a new deal that will give streaming and TV rights for Sony Pictures‘ new releases–including movies like Spider-Man: No Way Home–to Disney‘s many streaming and linear services.
It’s complicated, so buckle in.
The streaming deal includes Sony’s new theatrical releases between 2022 and 2026 as well as titles from Sony’s existing library, with releases heading to Disney+, Hulu, ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX, and National Geographic as appropriate.
In the press release, Sony specifically calls out its Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters films, which would include any Spider-Man films, as well as spin-off characters like Venom, Morbius, and spider-man-3-villain-kraven-so-its-probably-matt-damon/1100-6483333/” data-ref-id=”1100-6483333″ rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Kraven–not to mention Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and its upcoming sequel.
Here’s where things get complicated, though.
Earlier this month, Sony made a very similar-sounding deal with Netflix, which specifically included Spider-Man.
Disney’s deal kicks in after that window.
‘This landmark multi-year, platform-agnostic agreement guarantees the team at Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution a tremendous amount of flexibility and breadth of programming possibilities to leverage Sony’s rich slate of award-winning action and family films across our direct-to-consumer services and linear channels,’ said Chuck Saftler, head of business operations for ABC, Freeform, FX Networks and Acquisitions for Disney’s Media and Entertainment Distribution, in a press release.
‘This groundbreaking agreement reconfirms the unique and enduring value of our movies to film lovers and the platforms and networks that serve them,’ said Keith Le Goy, president, Worldwide Distribution and Networks, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
For us streaming fans at home, this means that we can expect to find nearly all of the Marvel movies in one place following that Netflix window, whether they were formerly part of Fox’s X-Men series, the current Sony Spider-Man universe, or the Marvel Studios collection of films.
