Spider-Man: Homecoming in a nutshell
Released in France on July 12, 2017Spider-Man: Homecoming is the first film of the trilogy dedicated to Spider-Man within the vast Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character debuted as Tom Holland (Uncharted) in Captain America: Civil War. This first solo film is directed and written by Jon Wattswho also directed the following two opuses.
Homecoming begins after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Young Peter Parker tries to balance his high school life with his superhero identity. He has a hard time resuming an ordinary existence with his Aunt May after his brief but remarkable experience alongside the Avengers. He wants to prove to his new mentor, Tony Stark/Iron Man, that he can be more than the friendly neighborhood spider. When a new adversary, the Vulture, endangers what is dear to him, Peter decides to take matters into his own hands.
The Spider-Man franchise brought back to Disney+
Spider-Man: Homecoming being a film from Marvel and Disney studios, it is therefore not surprising to see it join Disney + once the distribution contract at Netflix has come to an end. This is not the only Spider-Man film to join Disney’s SVOD platform: Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2and the two opuses of The Amazing Spider-Man by Marc Webb join the service. In other words, all the live-action versions of Peter Parker are in one placealthough the other two feature films of Sam Raimi’s trilogy are still missing. These should arrive at a later date.especially since they are already available on the British version of Disney+.
The new media chronology lawwhich states that films can only be released on VOD from 17 months after their cinema screening, compared to 36 months according to the old version. This is why that the other two installments of the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy are also missing. According to this rule, Spider-Man: Far from Home being released in 2019, it should arrive sometime in the summer, and Spider-Man: No Way Home will not arrive until May 2023. Last year, Sony and Marvel have also reached an agreement that all Sony-distributed productions will need to stream on Netflix first before they can join Disney+. It is therefore possible that the last two Spider-Man will not arrive on the platform for quite a while.
Spider-Man: Homecoming leaves the Netflix catalog on Thursday, July 7, 2022. The first film in the MCU trilogy is already available on Disney+ since June 17, 2022.
