A few hours ago we were talking about WarnerMedia’s plans to give it exclusivity again in its premieres to theaters from 2022, and now we are going to Sony Pictures. As we know, she does not have her own streaming platform, so she has reached an agreement with Netflix multi-year and applicable in the United States.

With this new partnership, Netflix will have access to a new offering of premiere movies, including a constant supply of Marvel content, which has been out of reach of the streaming service since the launch of Disney +. Under the terms of the deal, this will include future installments of Spider-Man and Venom.
