This strangeness of licensing leads to a lot of weirdness with recent Spider-Man movies — like the fact that Spider-Man: Homecoming And Spider-Man: Far From Home Aren’t available on Disney Plus or why Tom Holland’s character avatar hasn’t been shown until recently poison movies or upcoming morbius,
Since then, however, things seem to be more amicable between the studios. Sony Pictures recently signed a deal that will license future movie releases for Disney’s streaming platform starting in 2022. And Marvel Studios has already announced an animated prequel to the Spider-Man movies, Spider-Man: Freshman’s Year, also coming to Disney Plus in the future.
