There’s something about June 17th, as it’s looking like we’re getting more announcements regarding the release of Sony films in key markets. Not only did Disney+ UK announce that they’ll add a multitude of iconic Spider-Man films, which is our first hint at the Sony-Disney deal from last year, but now we also have the confirmation for two more Spidey-based titles getting added to the streaming service.
Disney+ Japan has revealed that the Sony-Verse film Venom will also get added to the streaming service on June 17th. As it’s part of the Sony-Disney deal, we shouldn’t expect Venom: Let There Be Carnage to follow anytime soon, as Netflix has a first-look deal overall with the production company. Still, it’s addition is a big step forward for Disney+ to establish its “Marvel” home.
That was not all, as Italy has also shared a poster confirming that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is making its way to the service on June 17th. So, it looks like there won’t be much consistency between the markets on who gets what film. Italy includes a Venom announcement but not the other Spider-Man films.
Disney Japan is getting Spider-Man: Far From Home while the UK has not included the title in its line-up. They even shared that they are adding The Incredible Hulk, which is a character owned by Universal Studios and landed on HBO Max in the States. So, we might get an announcement from the US Disney+ at one point on what projects they might be adding.
