Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is finally coming to streaming. Months after its big screen release, the multiversal Spidey adventure will be available to watch from the comfort of your own home.

The streaming releases of Spider-Man movies are a little more complicated than other Marvel offerings due to the fact that the web-slinger is a joint property of both Sony and Marvel. But don't worry, you don't need to know the ins and outs of studio deals, because the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse streaming release date has finally been announced. 

When will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse be on Netflix?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is coming to Netflix on October 31. That means you can incorporate it into your Halloween movie nights, should you want to shake up the usual spooky fare. 

The movie hit the big screen on June 2, so 120 days after that was September 30, 2023; 120 days is the quickest titles can move from the big screen to Netflix, so it's arriving one month later than its earliest possible streaming date. 

Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse be coming to Disney Plus?

Despite featuring Marvel characters, the Spider-Verse movies (like the live-action Spidey films) are made and distributed by Sony. That means that it won't arrive on Disney Plus as quickly as MCU movies like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania or Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might.

This is because of a multi-billion dollar deal made between Sony and Disney back in 2021, which stipulated that Sony movies released from 2022 to 2026 would be eligible to stream on Disney’s services – AKA Disney Plus and Hulu – after an 18-month window. Sony has another deal with Netflix, which means the studio's movies will go to that streamer first – at a minimum of 120 days after theatrical release.

If you're waiting for the movie to arrive on Disney Plus, it might take a while yet – 18 months from June 2, 2023 takes us to December 2, 2024.
