Marvel Studios and Sony Announce Movie Theater Only Release for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Marvel Fans have been waiting to hear the new title of the next Spider-Man film and after a bit of teasing from the cast this week, Marvel Studios has shared the official title for the new film: Spider-Man: No Way Home. The studio also confirmed the film will premiere exclusively in theaters in time for Christmas on December 17, 2021.
Though Marvel Studios has several series premiering on the popular streaming service Disney+, it seems Marvel and Sony have agreed to keep Spider-Man: No Way Home in theaters exclusively for the premiere.
This is not a shock to Marvel fans, given Sony has been very forward about their plans to only premiere their films in theaters as well as Marvel Studios barring films such as Black Widow and Eternals from theaters for over a year to see a theatrical only release for the highly anticipated titles once movies theaters open at larger capacities, and it seems the next Spider-Man film is no exception.
Currently, neither Spider-Man: Homecoming or Spider-Man: Far From Home are available on Disney+, so the likelihood that the studios would have given the film the green light for a streamable premiere was practically non-existent.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently set to swing into theaters on December 17, 2021. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Marvel!
