Spider-Man: No Way Home will be in theaters by the end of 2021, and audiences can’t wait to get their hands on some new webhead content. 

Many fans are prepping for the MCU threequel by rewatching past installments from the Spider-Man franchise.

They’re also checking out other, older works from the webslinger, since there are many different projects out there that revolve around the friendly, neighborhood hero. 

Now, Disney+ has pulled together its collection of Spider-Man properties into a neat little category for audiences to browse. 

Into the Disney+ Spider-Verse 

Ahead of Spider-Man: No Way Home's theatrical release in December, Disney+ added a new section under its Marvel category of projects titled "Spider-Verse."

This new collection groups together various titles from both animated and live-action projects, including classics like mid-90s cartoon Marvel's Spider-Man and more modern takes like Avengers: Infinity War starring Tom Holland's webslinger. 

The full list of Spider-Man projects is below: 

  • Spider-Man (2017-2020) 
  • Spider-Man (1994-1997) 
  • Spider-Woman (1979) 
  • Spidey and His Amazing Friends (2021) 
  • Meet Spidey and His Amazing Friends: Shorts (2021) 
  • Ultimate Spider-Man (2012-2016) 
  • Spider-Man (1981) 
  • Spider-Man Unlimited (1999) 
  • Marvel's Super Hero Adventures (2017-2020) 
  • Spider-Man: Shorts (2017) 
  • Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (1981) 
  • Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel (2013) 
  • Marvel's Ultimate Comics (2016) 
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 
  • Avengers: Endgame (2019) 
  • Captain America: Civil War (2016) 

Disney’s Deal to Stream Sony’s Spider-Verse 

The addition of this new Disney+ section titled “Spider-Verse” is especially exciting when considering the additions that can be made to it starting as early as next year. 

As many fans now know, Sony and Disney struck up a deal in mid-2020 that allows Disney+ to stream live-action Spider-Man movies, as well as all of the upcoming films from Sony’s Universe of Spider-Man Characters. 

This was an unprecedented development in Spring 2020 as Sony had not previously played as nicely with Marvel Studios, keeping its Spider-Man movies (past and present) and all other affiliated works separate from the collection of MCU projects. 

Starting in 2022, though, Sony’s Morbius will be the first to follow this new streaming structure. After its theatrical run, Morbius will hit Netflix for a period, and then it’ll move to Disney+ and presumably join this new Spider-Verse collection. 

Fans will likely see Tom Hardy’s Venom movies follow suit, as well as each of Tom Holland’s previous solo films as the MCU’s Spider-Man. 

With this new deal between Disney and Sony, fans will even see the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse hit the House of Mouse's streaming service, giving the new Spidey-themed collection even further credibility with a project that actually explores the Spider-Verse. 

The new Spider-Verse collection is available to stream on Disney+.
