Spider-Man: No Way Home is heading to digital

After nearly a month in theaters, Spider-Man: No Way Home has firmly solidified its status as one of the highest-grossing films of all-time (it’s currently in eighth place behind Jurassic World and The Lion King). And now, we have an idea when people at home will get a chance to see the superhero event of 2021. According to Vudu, No Way Home will get its digital release on February 28, although that has not yet been confirmed by Sony or Disney (Vudu later removed the release date from its listing). However, pre-orders are already online on Amazon, Vudu, Apple TV, Google Play, and the Microsoft.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME - Official Trailer (HD)

Judging from the film’s current domestic total of $668.8 million, and its worldwide total of $1.5 billion, many moviegoers weren’t dissuaded from seeing it in theaters by COVID concerns. But for the benefit of those who have yet to see Spidey’s latest adventure, there will be no spoilers in this post. At the moment, there are no special features listed for No Way Home, but there will presumably be a behind-the-scenes look at how the movie came together.

A Spider-Man 8-Movie Collection bundle is also available now for $60, and includes the three Tobey Maguire films, the pair of Andrew Garfield installments, and Tom Holland’s contributions, ending with No Way Home, which will be made available to the bundle when it’s released.

Fans holding out for No Way Home‘s Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD debut are going to have a longer wait. As noted by Slash Film, Sony tends to schedule its physical disc releases two weeks after a film’s digital debut. If the pattern holds, then No Way Home will hit store shelves in the middle of March. That’s a much longer theatrical window than the majority of films get in the COVID era. The Spidey sequel’s continued box office success is likely the reason for this. It’s also rumored that Sony delayed Morbius simply to keep No Way Home on as many screens as possible.

In a recent interview, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed that Marvel and Sony are already developing a fourth Spider-Man movie for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. However, Holland has reiterated that his contract is up and he has spoken openly about taking a break from acting. As for director Jon Watts, his next Marvel movie will be a reboot of the Fantastic Four.

Zendaya and Jacob Batalon reprise their roles in No Way Home as MJ and Ned Leeds, respectively. Benedict Cumberbatch also co-stars as Doctor Strange ahead of his upcoming sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Marisa Tomei and Jon Favreau are back as May Parker and Happy Hogan, respectively. The film’s villains include Willem Dafoe as Green Goblin, Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, Thomas Haden Church as Sandman, Rhys Ifans as the Lizard, and Jamie Foxx as Electro. Finally, J.K. Simmons portrays Spidey’s eternal nemesis, J. Jonah Jameson.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is out in theaters now.

Madame Web: how many post-credits scenes does it have?
Dakota Johnson looks at someone in Madame Web.

If you're coming into the weekend without any idea about who the title character of Madame Web is, then you're not alone. For all of the barbs that The Marvels got – and we've fired a few ourselves – the three characters at the center of that movie at least had the benefit of having two headliners between them. Not one of the main characters in Madame Web has ever held down an ongoing comic book series, least of all Dakota Johnson's Cassandra Web.

But for any comic book movie fans who just have to know about the future of Sony's Spider-Man Universe – aka the movies that don't actually feature Spider-Man – then we can tell you right now how many post-credits scenes that Madame Web has.
How many post-credits scenes does Madame Web have?
None. There's nothing at the mid-credits or the post-credits, so you can run for the exit as soon as the credits roll. Although you may want to leave sooner than that. But consider this post as your clairvoyant vision of the future, which will allow you to stop yourself from losing 116 minutes of your life that you'll never get back. Why should you pay money to see a film that will probably be on Netflix by this summer?

Madame Web’s ending, explained
Four women stand in a NYC corner in "Madame Web."

Sony and Marvel's latest Spider-Man spinoff, Madame Web, has finally swung into theaters. Set in the year 2003, Madame Web follows paramedic/clairvoyant Cassie Webb (Dakota Johnson) as she tries to protect three young women destined to become Spider-Women from being hunted down by the evil Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim). Said Spider-Women include Julia Cornwall (Sydney Sweeney), Mattie Franklin (Celeste O'Connor), and Anya Corazon (Isabela Merced).

Though it is only the fourth film in Sony's Spider-Man Universe, it has been received just as well as one would expect from the franchise at this point. Before this film even came out, fans knew it would be another misfire on par with Morbius, and things have turned out just as they were foretold. Nevertheless, it's clear that this story is meant to set up something big for the franchise. So now, let's break down what the movie and its ending mean for this cinematic universe.

Spider-Man vs. Harry Potter: Which one is the best?
Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man and Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter.

Although the magical Hogwarts adventures of Harry Potter and the super villaininfested New York City of Spider-Man are worlds apart, the two franchises have a common history in this century. The first Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, arrived in theaters in November 2001. Six months later, Spider-Man marked his big-screen debut in May 2002. Both film series went on to be among the highest-grossing franchises ever.

There isn't a true rivalry between Spider-Man and Harry Potter fans in the way that fans would pit comic book heroes against each other. Comic book crossovers actually exist that have put Spider-Man in stories opposite Superman and Batman, the only superheroes who are on his level or beyond. A Spider-Man and Harry Potter crossover is unlikely to ever happen outside the realm of fan fiction, but their similar history makes it an intriguing matchup. So we've decided to compare them in five key categories in order to determine who would be the winner in a Spider-Man versus Harry Potter battle.
