You’ll notice box office smash Spider-Man: No Way Home is absent from the list, with the streaming rights to the box office smash heading to Starz this month as part of Sony’s deal with the platform.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hit Disney+ last Wednesday, just 47 days after its theatrical premiere on a box office run that has seen the sequel amass over $950 million worldwide, second only to Top Gun: Maverick in terms of the year’s biggest earners.
