Who owns the Spider-Man Movies?

It's pretty common knowledge that Disney also owns Marvel. And Spider-Man is a Marvel comic book character. So why can I not watch Spider-Man movies on Disney+?

The answer to that, should ever have a few hours to go down the rabbit hole of rights ownership, is that Sony actually owns the character of Spider-Man.

It started back in the 90s when Marvel was a company that sold paper comic books or plastic toys. Selling actual retail products was their business model.

In 1993 Marvel Films was created, but it wasn't to make movies. Instead, it was so they could license Marvel superheroes so other companies could make them.

The idea was that studios would pay Marvel to use a superhero, and then when the film was a hit, Marvel could sell the toys and merch and make money that way.

Around 2000, when Marvel didn't make their own films, they agreed on a deal with Sony Pictures. Sony would pay Marvel $10 million for every “Spider-Man” movie that Sony wanted to make.

Marvel would also get 5% of the movie revenue, and the two would split the money generated from the “Spider-Man” movie toys.

Here's the kicker – and it's also the reason why there are soooooo many Spider-Man movies.

According to Joanna Robinson, who read the contract on a Planet Money podcast for NPR:

“Sony must commence production on a new “Spider-Man” film within three years, nine months and release it within five years, nine months after the release of preceding picture.”

And what happens if they don't? If Sony does not release a Spider-Man movie every five years and nine months, the movie rights go back to Marvel, and Sony loses its most valuable pieces of intellectual property.

Why Is Spider-Man No Way Home Not On Disney+?

The explanation above outlines how and why Sony owns Spider-Man. As Sony has no working relationship with Disney, the movies cannot be streamed by them.

Instead, Sony uses other platforms to stream its content, including HBO, Sky Cinema, Netflix, and Amazon. Basically, everybody but Disney!
