You can now watch nearly all Spider-Man movies on 1 streaming service
The SSU swings into the MCU.
The multiverse will break wide open as you can now watch nearly all of the Spider-Man films on Disney Plus. These include Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, the 2 Amazing Spider-Man reboots and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Part of Sony's Spider-Man Universe (SSU), these are movies made by Sony Pictures, which has the licence to Spider-Man and related characters. This is separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which makes movies and TV shows about nearly all other Marvel characters such as Iron Man, Thor and Black Widow. However, the 2 companies have in the past shared the character, allowing Spider-Man to appear in some MCU movies.
This means you can now watch nearly all Spider-Man movies alongside their MCU counterparts.

But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only he can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than himself. And as old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns, Peter comes to realise that his enemies have 1 thing in common: Oscorp.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (2018)
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) bring their talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe.

Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote. This results in extraordinary superpowers, transforming him into Venom. Will these powers be enough for this new lethal protector to defeat great evil forces? Especially against the far stronger and more weaponised symbiote rival, Riot?
