Spider-Men: Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield

Highlights
  • Tobey’s Spider-Man trilogy was on SonyLIV, Aha earlier
  • Homecoming, The Amazing Spider-Man have been on Netflix
  • The four missing Sony–Marvel titles are on Netflix in India

Five Spider-Man movies (and one Venom film) are coming to Disney+ Hotstar on July 1. And it includes one of the best superhero movies of all time. On Monday afternoon, the Disney Star-owned streaming service announced that the Tobey Maguire–Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy — that's Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Spider-Man 3 (2007) — will soon be available on Disney+ Hotstar. Additionally, Disney+ Hotstar is also getting the first Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movie, The Amazing-Spider Man (2012), the first standalone Tom Holland Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and the first Tom Hardy symbiote movie, Venom (2018).

Of course, the curious bit for Spidey fans is the fact that it's not a complete collection. That's because the other titles — Garfield's second adventure, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Holland's Marvel Cinematic Universe sequels, Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), and Hardy's Venom follow-up, Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) — are all available on Netflix in India. (I'm not counting Morbius as its OTT premiere is not due yet.) That clearly suggests an exclusivity option in the contract. While Tobey fans can be pleased to have his trilogy in full — it has been on SonyLIV in the past, and currently on Aha of all places — Garfield and MCU fans don't get to share in that joy.

Except it may not always stay that way. Disney+ Hotstar's new announcement notes that “additional titles from Sony Pictures' film and television library are expected to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar in India later this year.” This is both vague and curious. It suggests that the aforementioned missing titles (Amazing Spider-Man 2, Far From Home, No Way Home, and Venom 2) could join the others (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Venom) on Disney+ Hotstar. Or it may simply suggest that Sony Pictures' non-Marvel titles could arrive on Disney+ Hotstar. Gadgets 360 has reached out to Disney+ Hotstar for comment.

India isn't the first market where Disney has tried to add Spider-Man movies to Disney+. (Animated Spider-Man cartoons have been available on both Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar for a while now, but we're not talking about those here.) This first happened earlier in June, when the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy, Andrew Garfield's Spidey duology, and Spider-Man: No Way Home were made available on Disney+ in the UK, Canada, and elsewhere. As you can tell, the titles aren't an exact match, likely due to regional distribution and licensing agreements. Still, something is better than nothing.

Here's more on those six Sony Pictures Marvel movies that are coming to Disney+ Hotstar on July 1 —

Spider-Man️ (2002) — available July 1 on Disney+ Hotstar

Average teenager Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is transformed into an extraordinary superhero after he is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider.
