Carolina, a resident of Argentina is a movie buff through and through. She enjoys nothing more than binge-watching the latest Netflix series and is a big fan of their 'Originals' line. Her favourite movie is Frozen and she's a big fan of The Good Place & The Dragon Prince.

Spiderman is one of the biggest franchises in the movie world and with plenty of movies, cartoons and other spinoffs, there is a lot of viewing choice.

However, like any character that has spawned multiple films, finding where they’re available in the streaming marketplace of today can be difficult, if near impossible.

If you’re a Spiderman fan, you’ll want to know where you can watch all the latest movies and more.

So, the million-dollar question…

Can I watch Spider-Man on Disney+?

No. Sadly, none of the Spider-Man movies are on Disney+.

Probably, you’re wondering why? Since Spider-Man is a Marvel character, and Disney owns Marvel.

Long story short: before Disney bought Marvel, all the Marvel licenses were scattered around several movie Studios. Marvel was almost in bankruptcy, so they needed money. They sold their characters with different types of agreements.

Sony is the current right holder of Spider-Man for films, and it doesn’t matter that Disney is the owner of Marvel, they can’t get Spider-Man back unless they buy it back.

For this reason, all Spidey movies, even those based on characters that belong to the Spider-Verse, are produced and distributed by Sony Pictures, just like what happens with Venom.

The new trilogy of Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland is a co-production between Sony and Marvel Studios.

Since Marvel needed to include Spidey in their Infinity Saga, they reached an agreement with Sony to share the character. However, these movies are made by Sony, which is why Disney+ can’t have them on its catalogue.

Where can I find the Spider-Man movies on streaming?

Depending on where you live, you can find Spider-Man movies on different streaming services, like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Paramount+.

In this article I’ll be showing you exactly where you can find and watch each and every one.

What do I need to watch these movies?

There are two scenarios: the first one, you don’t live in any of the countries where the movies are available. The second one; you don’t have a subscription to the platform where the movies are available.

Whether that’s the case, you’ll need some help, and here enters an app known as a ‘VPN’ like ExpressVPN.

With A VPN, you can access the movies by connecting to a server located in the country where they’re available.

How does a VPN work?

A VPN works as an intermediate between your internet connection and your devices. Its main purpose is to protect your online activity and privacy by concealing your true location with the one of a server located in another country.

The benefit of this is you can make yourself appear in ANY country and therefore access streaming services that aren’t available locally.

How to choose the best VPN?

Choosing a VPN can be a challenging task sometimes. There are plenty of options and it’s difficult to know which are best before parting with your cash and signing up.

Don’t worry, I’ll make your task easier.

The best VPN in the market is ExpressVPN. It has the best features such as the fastest connection speeds, apps available for all devices and OS and the guarantee of getting your money back after 30 days of using the service if you’re unhappy.

If you want more options to choose from, take a look at NordVPN and Surfshark.

Both of them are runners up to ExpressVPN in features and prices. However, neither of them offers 49% off like ExpressVPN is right now or works well with routers allowing you to watch on Smart TVs and other devices.

Sam Raimi’s Trilogy

Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Army of Darkness) brought Spider-Man to the big screen in a time when superheroes movies weren’t as mainstream as now.

His Spider-Man trilogy remains nowadays as one the best sagas based on a comic character.

Although the third instalment is the weakest one and somehow killed any other plans for Raimi to keep going with Spidey, his job has influenced everything that has been done with Spider-Man since.

Spider-Man (2002)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi – 121 min.

Available on Netflix (in 22 countries) (Recommended VPN locations: Canada, the UK), Prime Video (the UK, France)

Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) is the typical nerd in high school: he’s shy, a genius, and an outcast.

When he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider, he gains spider-like powers. After a family tragedy strikes his life, he decides to use his new abilities to fight crime as the new superhero in the neighbourhood: Spider-Man.

The cast is completed by Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson), James Franco (Harry Osborn), Willem Dafoe (Norman Osborn/Green Goblin), and Rosemary Harris (May Parker).

The second instalment in Raimi’s trilogy is today considered one of the best superhero movies.

This sequel finds Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) struggling to balance his personal life with his Spider-Man alter ego. Things get more complicated when he must fight against a brilliant scientist, Dr Otto Octavious (Alfred Molina), who becomes the dangerous villain Dr Octopus.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi – 139 min.

Available on HBO Max (Latin America), Netflix (Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey)

Recommended VPN location: Australia

Perhaps the weak point of this final chapter to this trilogy is being too ambitious in covering three arcs in a single movie and not developing any of them.

However, aside from this, Spider-Man 3 is still a great movie that shows Venom for the first time on the big screen. When Peter has reached a certain balance in his life, an entity coming from another world joins him in symbiosis and makes him act strangely while he experiences weird freedom.

Reboot

Only five years after the final chapter to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man saga had hit theatres, Sony decided to reboot the character.

This time things were slightly different than before.

2012 was the year Avengers was released, changing how superheroes movies were approached by studios and audiences alike. Also, this was the year that Marvel Studios, now under Disney’s command, consolidated the MCU.

All eyes were upon Marvel, including what Sony made with an emblematic Marvel character like Spidey.

Although Sony’s reboot had a good beginning, they were too desperate to emulate what Disney was doing, and they attempted to create a Spider-Verse overnight.

The second movie in this new saga was a failure both in critics and box-office, causing Sony to abort the reboot and cancelling The Sinister Six movie that was already in development.

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy – 136 min.

Available on HBO Max (Latin America), Prime Video (the UK), Netflix (in 27 countries)

Two villains, the Green Goblin and Electro appear seeking revenge and trying to siege the city.

MCU Movies

During 2014, Sony was in talks with Marvel Studios to include Spider-Man in the MCU through the film Captain America: Civil War.

Marvel wasn’t happy with the first draft of the agreement because the rights to the movie were going to belong to Sony.

Finally, at the beginning of 2015, they reached an agreement allowing Spider-Man to be part of the MCU. This was the end of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.

Tom Holland replaced Andrew Garfield, and a whole new approach was given to the character.

Animated Spider-Verse

In 2015, Sony announced that an animated Spider-Man movie was in production set to be released in 2018. The idea behind this movie was to expand the Spider-Verse by focusing on Miles Morales, who in comic books was Spider-Man in another reality.

Due to the success of this film at the box office, the consensus of the critics, and having won the Academy Award as best animated movie of the year in 2018, Sony decided to work on a sequel and keep exploring the so-called Spider-Verse.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

Animation, Action, Adventure – 117 min.

Available on Prime Video (Latin America), Netflix (Australia, Canada, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine)

Recommended VPN locations: Australia, Canada.

What about the animated series?

Most Spider-Man animated series are available on Disney+ except for the first series from 1967, which can’t be found anywhere and The Spectacular Spider-Man that was produced by Sony who holds the rights of distribution and can be found on Netflix globally.

Anyway, Disney+ doesn’t have all the series globally, so some are in certain countries while others are not.

Animation, Action, Family – 1 season – 16 episodes

Available on Disney+ (Latin America, the US, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, the UK)

The series is based on the Marvel character of the same name that belongs to the Spider-Verse. Although several details from the comic were changed in the cartoon to make it suitable for kids, the basic premise remains the same.

The Spectacular Spider-Man (2008 – 2009)

Available on Netflix (globally)

This series focuses on a teenager Peter Parker and tells his origin as Spider-Man by following the style and stories from the early comics by Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and John Romita Sr.

Since Disney bought Marvel during the running of this show, the third season, which was already planned, never saw the light to avoid legal conflicts with Sony, who has produced the series.

Seagle, Joe Kelly, Joe Casey and Duncan Rouleau), Ultimate Spider-Man offers a new approach to the hero, being one of the most ambitious animation projects related to Spider-Man.

This time, Peter Parker has been Spider-Man for one year, fighting crime and villains and still learning how to use his powers. Nick Fury offers to train him under S.H.I.E.L.D., but first, Peter should learn some teamwork by leading four teenage superheroes: Nova, White Tiger, Iron Fist, and Power Man.

What other Spider-Man stuff can I find on Disney+?

The three MCU movies where Spider-Man has participated are available on Disney: Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Summary

Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes and also one of the most popular. Through the years, we have seen him in many TV series, movies, and animated shows.

Sadly, he got caught in the middle of the war of licenses between Disney and Sony, and for this reason, none of the Spider-Man movies can be found on Disney+.

However, through this dedicated guide and with the help of a VPN like ExpressVPN, you can watch all the Spidey movies along with the animated series on every streaming platform where they’re available.
