Sony Pictures Entertainment owns the rights to Spider-Man, but with the last two they have a deal to share the Spider-Man film rights. This is why the last two are part of Infinity Saga.

These seven movies grossed $6 billion at the global box office. Spider-Man: Far from Home is the first Spider-Man film to gross over $1 billion worldwide. It is also Sony’s highest-grossing film ever.
