While a six-month period may appear to be a loose timeframe to release the Spider-Man The Movie: The Ultimate Spider-Man: No Way to Homestreaming release, however the more complex aspect of its rights is the main reason behind the plan. It is not like other MCU films Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals that were released on PVOD in addition to Disney+ within two months of their theatrical release The web-slinging third installment is owned by Sony and has a contract with Lionsgate for the films to be made available on Starz.

Since this agreement will see films released to the network after both theatrical and home media releases, it’s understandable why Spider-Man The Last Way Homewouldn’t appear on Starz earlier because it will have to wait until the film is ready to be released on physical and PVOD shelves, for which no date has been set the film by Sony at the moment at the time of the writing.

It’s worth noting it is Spider-Man the Movie: The No Way Home is set to be the last Sony movie to air on Starz under their agreement with Sony since they reached a lucrative contract in partnership with Netflix in the early 2021s for all future movies until 2026. Sony also signed a contract with Disney in the same period that let the two platforms Disney+ as well as Hulu to stream the company’s old content including earlier Spider-Manfilms as well as the Sony Spider-Man Universe, which is expected to debut later in the coming year. While fans await a precise date for its streaming debut, Spider-Man: No Way Homecan be seen in cinemas right now.
