Sony Pictures & Walt Disney Ink Deal To Stream Classic Marvel Films On Disney+

Today, Walt Disney announced in conjunction with Sony Pictures (via CNBC) that classic Sony/Marvel films will soon stream on Disney+ and Hulu. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy will now finally appear on the streaming service alongside the other films set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Other classic films that will join those films include Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Ghost Rider 1 & 2, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2; as well as Sony/Spider-Man spin-off films like Venom and Morbius. This comes after Sony Pictures signed a deal with Netflix (via The Hollywood Reporter) to allow their future film releases to appear on that streaming service 9 months after they debut in theaters/VOD. After that streaming contract expires each film will then move to Disney+.  It seems Sony and Marvel’s partnership is getting much better due to this agreement after 2019’s Spider-Man contract renegotiation.

It looks as Marvel will now consolidate all past Marvel films not produced by Marvel Studios onto one streaming service. This already began as several Fox-produced X-Men and Fantastic Four films began appearing on the service last year. However, the Blade trilogy streaming rights are still at New Line Cinema. While the past Punisher films are at Lionsgate. It’ll be interesting if these hard-R Marvel films will ever join the service as well.
