Netflix has occupied the throne of the largest streaming platform of our time, although its reign is threatened by the arrival of Disney Plus, HBO Max, Paramount Plus and Apple TV +, among others. However, in recent years he has shown a great vision to continue attracting subscribers; with Nickelodeon they have produced several films and series of their most successful properties such as sponge Bob and Avatar: The Last Airbender: Book 3 – 100%. The most recent deal that Netflix closed was to produce and have exclusively the sequels of Entre Navajas y Secretos – 100% by Rian Johnson.
On the other hand, it seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home and Venom: Let There Be Carnage are not part of the aforementioned contract, but it does not mean that the films are not going to reach Netflix, they will only take a little longer. Plus, the long-awaited sequel to Spider-Man: A New Universe – 100% will be part of the deal, as it opens on October 7, 2022.
However, Disney Plus users currently have several animated Spider-Man series, and Spider-Man played by Tom Holland appears in several choral installments as Captain America: Civil War – 90%, Avengers: Infinity War – 79% and Avengers: Endgame – 95%.
