This morning Disney+ has made a huge announcement about the streaming future of Spider-Man in the UK. The streamer has confirmed that six movies from the Wall Crawler’s cinematic legacy will all be joining the service later this week.

All three films from Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3, will arrive alongside both The Amazing Spider-Man movies on June 17, 2022. They will be joined by Jon Watt’s first film made in the partnership between Sony and Marvel, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In case you missed any films in this legendary franchise, here’s a breakdown:

  • Spider-Man™ (2002) – Available 17 June, 2022

It’s great to be Spider-Man, but being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.

It is not yet known when, or if, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: No Way Home or animated super-hit Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse will join. The press release does confirm that “additional titles” from Sony Pictures film and television are expected to premiere later this year.
