The third solo Spider-Man movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, No Way Home, picks up where Far From Home left off. Spidey (Tom Holland) has had his secret identity outed to the world, and to make matters worse, he’s wanted for the murder of Mysterio. Desperate to put things right, the Wallcrawler turns to the master of the mystic arts, Doctor Strange, to make the world forget his secret.
Unfortunately, Peter makes the mistake of interfering while Strange is casting the spell and things go wrong. How wrong? Well, the multiverse starts collapsing in on itself, which seems like something you don’t want to happen. To make matters worse, this allows old Spidey villains (Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Electro and more) to invade the MCU. Can Spidey stop his old enemies and save the multiverse? Will the world forget his identity? Well, you’ll have to watch to find out.
Where can you watch Spider-Man: No Way Home?
Spider-Man: No Way Home swings into theatres on December 15 here in the UK, and two days later on December 17 in the US. Like several films, Spidey’s third MCU outing was initially set for a July 2021 release but was delayed by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Spider-Sense tingling! Best action movies
Still, things could have been worse; we nearly didn’t get a third MCU Spider-Man film at all. Following the release of Far From Home, renegotiations between Sony and Disney – who share ownership of Spider-Man – collapsed, leading to the character leaving the MCU.
People were outraged, and under pressure from the fan base, both studios eventually struck a new deal that allowed the character back into the MCU.
Can you stream Spider-Man: No Way Home?
Not yet, but soon! Spider-Man: No Way Home will arrive on digital on March 22 before hitting physical media (Blu-ray and 4K UHD) on April 12.
The adventure continues: Marvel’s Phase 4
No Way Home is in a strange position — as a late 2021 movie, it narrowly missed the deadline of both Netflix’s agreement with Sony’s and their agreement with streaming service Disney Plus – with Sony recently signing a new deal with Disney Plus that’ll ensure all their Marvel films from 2022 onwards come to Disney Plus first.
of course, we got THE meme. #SpiderManNoWayHome swings home on Digital March 22 and on 4K UHD & Blu-ray on April 12!

This leaves Starz, as part of a previous deal with Sony that is no longer in effect for their 2022 slate of films, as the streaming service that will exclusively drop a digital version of No Way Home before anywhere else. While the exact date it drops is not yet confirmed, Starz’s CEO said in an interview that it will be sometime in the next six months — meaning that we can expect the movie to be available to stream on Starz before the end of August 2022.
