We’ve seen Marvel and Star Wars shows debut on the streaming service, as well as other original content. But, Disney+ also adds movies and TV shows onto its platform that weren’t made exclusively for Disney, like other content they have acquired over the years. And now, 3 NEW movies are coming to Disney+!
The rights to Marvel superheroes are kind of a confusing situation. Disney has the rights to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but not totally. Universal has the theme park rights to the Marvel comic characters in Orlando and a deal with Disney not to produce any Marvel theme park content too close to their parks. Sony still has some of the rights to Spider-Man. Is your head hurting yet?
Sony and Disney have struck a deal for the past few films that allows Disney to make Spider-Man movies — which is how we got Peter Parker in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies like Avengers:Endgame. Then, in 2019, the dealings fell apart. It looked like Disney and Sony weren’t going to reach an agreement and that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man would be removed from the MCU. Until, suddenly, they DID make an agreement. Alright, alright, we’ll back up. How did we get here and what does it even all mean??
Disney+ is starting a new Summer Movie Nights series where they will debut a blockbuster hit or original movie EVERY WEEK. Gather the fam and settle in for Friday night fun because this lineup is super exciting!
