New Deal Will Allow Netflix to Stream Sony Titles Such as Spider-Man, Venom, Jumanji, and More in 2022. This week, a new agreement was struck between Netflix and Sony Pictures that will bring big name titles to the popular streaming service next year. Films from franchises such as Spider-Man, Venom, Jumanji, and more will be offered on Netflix beginning in 2022, with a select number of titles from Sony’s “movie vault” making their way to Netflix as well. Sony And Netflix have yet to announce which older titles will join the Netflix roster.
The new deal “requires Netflix to commit to a certain number of titles from the studio, but it doesn’t stop Sony from selling direct-to-streaming titles to Netflix’s rivals. And Netflix will license an unspecified number of older titles from Sony’s movie vault.”
“Sony Pictures is a great partner and we are thrilled to expand our relationship through this forward-thinking agreement,” Netflix global film head Scott Stuber shared in a statement featured by Variety. “This not only allows us to bring their impressive slate of beloved film franchises and new IP to Netflix in the U.S., but it also establishes a new source of first-run films for Netflix movie lovers worldwide.”
“Netflix has been a terrific partner as we continue to expand our relationship,” Keith Le Goy, SPE’s president of worldwide distribution and networks expressed. “At Sony Pictures, we produce some of the biggest blockbusters and the most creative, original films in the industry. This exciting agreement further demonstrates the importance of that content to our distribution partners as they grow their audiences and deliver the very best in entertainment.”
