Spider-Man: No Way Home, the highly anticipated third MCU Spider-Man movie from Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, is nearly here.
Releasing exclusively in theatres on December 17th, No Way Home promises to the “Avengers: Endgame” of Spider-Man movies as the world of Tom Holland’s titular hero collides with the multiverse.
After an effort by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to make the world forget his secret identity goes wrong, Holland’s Peter finds himself coming face to face with villains from previous Spider-Man films.
Sony and Marvel have so far only officially revealed Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, with teases for Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin (Spider-Man), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church, Spider-Man 3), The Lizard (Rhys Ifans, The Amazing Spider-Man) and Electro (Jamie Foxx, The Amazing Spider-Man 2). It’s also heavily rumoured that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will reprise their roles as Spider-Man from the Sam Raimi trilogy and Marc Webb duology of Spidey films, respectively.
All of that is to say that No Way Home will draw heavily from Spider-Man films beyond Tom Holland’s own Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home. For that reason, you may want to rewatch some (or even all) of those older movies in the lead-up to No Way Home.
Read on for the full list of where you can stream all seven live-action Spider-Man films in Canada. Of course, these movies can also be rented or purchased from digital storefronts like iTunes and Google Play.
- Spider-Man (2002) — Amazon Prime Video and Netflix
- Spider-Man 2 (2004) — Amazon Prime Video and CTV.ca (free with ads)
- Spider-Man 3 (2007) — Amazon Prime Video
- The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) — Netflix
- The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) — CTV.ca (free with ads)
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) — Netflix
- Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) — Netflix
So TL;DR — having Amazon Prime Video covers you for all of Tobey Maguire’s films, while Netflix has both of Tom Holland’s. For Andrew Garfield, though, Netflix only covers his first outing, The Amazing Spider-Man, so those interested in the sequel will either have to bear with ads on CTV.ca or just rent it for $3.99 to $4.99 on the likes of iTunes and Google Play.
Of course, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man also appears in Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). If you want to revisit those as well, you can do so on Disney+ — now with support for ‘Enhanced IMAX’ aspect ratio, no less. The three movies can be found under both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Spider-Verse sections of Disney+.
Meanwhile, Venom (2018), the first in Sony’s growing universe of Spider-Man-related movies, is streaming on Netflix. The sequel, this year’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage, only just hit theatres last month, so it doesn’t yet have a confirmed streaming release date or specific streaming platform(s). And while unrelated to No Way Home, it’s worth mentioning that Sony Pictures Animation’s Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse can be streamed on Netflix.
