Again in April, Disney+ began to regularly add numerous Spider-Man movies to its catalog, from the previous Sam Raimi trilogy to the significantly much less older Spider-Man: Homecoming and Venom. Additionally added in that blend (finally) was 2012’s The Superb Spider-Man, although it wasn’t clear on the time when its sequel would hit the streamer.
Happily, it seems that The Superb Spider-Man 2 is now on Disney+, at the least within the US. The film initially launched in 2014 and didn’t go over terribly nicely with critics audiences—granted, neither did the primary Superb, however the sequel additionally didn’t make the cash that Sony hoped that it could. Because of this, the studio’s plans for Spider-Man bought canned, they needed to resort to a shared custody take care of Marvel Studios for Peter Parker to be within the MCU (which itself virtually fell aside in 2019 as Spider-Man: Far From Residence was turning into a billion-dollar theatrical success). Whereas Tom Holland’s Peter has been having fun with life as an Avengers tagalong and moving into one CG-heavy mess after one other, Sony’s pivoted its post-Superb 2 plans slowly, however certainly: its Venom is technically within the MCU now due to Spider-Man: No Approach Residence, the Madame Internet film with Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney will give it a woman-led superhero film it’s been making an attempt to get for years now, and Morbius is….doing one thing with the Sinister Six, and presumably October’s Kraven the Hunter film will proceed that bizarre thread.
As for Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker? That’s additionally a giant query mark; it appeared like No Approach Residence was meant to provide him some extra closure that Superb 2 didn’t completely give him. However with how multiverse-heavy Sony and Marvel have been as of late in their very own tasks, it’s simply as possible that there’s an Superb Spider-Man 3 within the works that’s meant to be a model new day for the underappreciated iteration of the webhead. We possible gained’t know for awhile, given the state of Hollywood proper now, nevertheless it wouldn’t be too stunning to listen to, contemplating that at this very second, veteran superhero actors returning to previous roles can be the recent development studios are latching onto.
Each Superb Spider-Man motion pictures are over on Disney+, joined by Venom, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. Tom Holland’s different two sequels, Far From Residence and No Approach Residence, are presently locked to Starz, as is Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
