With great power comes great, *amazing* movies. Take it from the five Spider-Man movies swinging onto Disney+ starting this week.

Disney+ in a Facebook post announced that Sony's Tobey Maguire-led Spider-Man trilogy and Andrew Garfield-led The Amazing Spider-Man are streaming on April 21.

The Marvel's Tom Holland-led Spider:Man Homecoming, meanwhile, will premiere on May 12 alongside Venom starring Tom Hardy.

Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as Venom: Let There Be Carnage aren't on the platform just yet.

The first three Spidey movies, directed by Sam Raimi, feature Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Kirsten Dunst as his love interest Mary Jane Watson. Villains include Green Goblin (William Dafoe), Doctor Octopus (Alfred Molina), Sandman, (Thomas Hayden Church), Venom (Topher Grace), and New Goblin (James Franco).

The Amazing movie, directed by Marc Webb, stars Garfield as the titular superhero and Emma Stone as his love interest Gwen Stacy. His nemesis is Lizard, portrayed by Rhys Ifans.

The Homecoming movie, directed by Jon Watts, features Holland in the lead role, Zendaya as Mary Jane, and Filipino-American actor Jacob Batalon as his best friend Ned. He fights against Vulture, portrayed by Michael Keaton. As part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Homecoming also features Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man.

The three Spider-Mans appear altogether in No Way Home, as Phase Four of the MCU has introduced the concept of "multiverse." The Let There Be Carnage movie also has a connection to the MCU.
