Fans have longed for Marvel Studios to bring the character of Spider-Man to life as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a long time. With Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans finally got their wish. The film was released on July 7, 2017, marking the first full-length feature film focused on Spider-Man to come through Marvel Studios. Now, fans of Spidey are asking “When will Spider-Man: Homecoming be on Netflix?” This article provides our best estimate.
Spider-Man: Homecoming Netflix US Release Date
Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the teenager who gained superpowers after he was bitten by a spider. The film follows Spider-Man as he tests out the abilities of a new suit created by Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.).
Along the way, Peter uncovers the sinister plot of The Vulture (Michael Keaton) and has a chance to take down the villain and earn his place as an Avenger. In addition to being a superhero, Peter has to juggle school and try to hide his alter ego from his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei).
When will Spider-Man: Homecoming be on Netflix? To try and determine the answer, let’s take a look at what happened with another movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America: Civil War. The film’s DVD release occurred on September 13, 2016. The movie was available on the Netflix DVD service at that time. It debuted on the streaming service roughly 3 months later, on December 25, 2016.
Spider-Man: Homecoming’s DVD release date is not yet available as of the beginning of 2018, although most retailers have reported the movie is set to come to Netflix in October or November of 2017. Using Captain America: Civil War as a guide, the movie is likely to appear on Netflix about 3 months later. That means fans can expect it in January or February 2018.
It’s important to note that not every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie is available for streaming online. Spider-Man: Homecoming may only become available on Netflix through DVD. If it does become available, it will likely only be for a limited time.
In addition, we need to take into account that, although Marvel (which is owned by Disney) has the comic rights to the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, the movie rights belong to Sony alone, which further decreases the chances of the movie ever reaching the streaming service.
Spider-Man: Homecoming Around the World Release Date
According to our research, Spider-Man: Homecoming is already streaming on Netflix South Korea.
Spider-Man fans in Canada, the UK, and other parts of the world may face disappointment with the answer to “When will Spider-Man: Homecoming be on Netflix?” If the movie does become available on the most popular streaming service, it is likely to only stream in the United States. That’s the case with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The DVDs will likely be available through Netflix outside the U.S. Normally, Marvel Cinematic Universe DVDs become available abroad around the same time as in the U.S. This means the DVDs will likely come to Netflix DVD sites in the following months, as well. However, the fact that Homecoming is a Sony movie might delay its availability on Netflix even further.
