Those wondering “Why isn’t Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Disney Plus?” are likely searching through the streaming service and frantically hunting for the webhead. Unfortunately, watching new Spider-Man movies on Disney Plus has been made very difficult. Here’s the need-to-know info on why the new Spider-Verse 2 movie is missing from Disney Plus and if it will ever come to the streamer.

Why is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse not on Disney Plus?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is not on Disney Plus because of a deal between Sony and Netflix.

Netflix will have exclusive access to Sony movies like Across the Spider-Verse for the “pay one window.” This can last up to 18 months, so expect Netflix to have the exclusive license for quite some time.

It might seem odd that Spider-Man is missing from the platform that hosts the most Marvel content, but that is ultimately just how the deal has gone down.

Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse ever come to Disney Plus?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will eventually come to Disney Plus in 2025.

As we explained here, following Netflix’s exclusivity period, which can last as long as 18 months, Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse will then come to Disney Plus. While there is a bit of a wait, Disney Plus subscribers at least have the option to wait it out, rather than being forced to subscribe to another streaming service.

For now, the only way to watch Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse is in the theatres. Then, when it is available for watching at home, users will have a choice of buying or renting the movie from marketplaces like Amazon, or streaming it via Netflix.

For more Spider-Man content, here are the box office results for the new Across the Spider-Verse movie. Here’s how Hailee Steinfeld would play a live-action Spider-Woman.
