If watching Spider-Man: No Way Home got you nostalgic for the web-slingers of your youth, then you’ll soon be able to get your wish. Next month, the two Amazing Spider-Man films will swing their way onto Netflix, making it easier for fans to see Marc Webb’s version of Spider-Man in action.

Starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, both The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will land on Netflix on March 1. This isn’t the first time the movies have been on the streaming service – Netflix often gets and loses the rights to movies in what has become a revolving door. It makes it difficult to know how long anything that isn’t a Netflix Original will be in their library, so don’t leave something sitting on your Watch List too long.

The Amazing Spider-Man movies have seen something of a revival in the years since Garfield reprised his role in No Way Home. At the time, the films were seen as somewhat corny, with scripts that were too packed with extraneous storylines and corny dialogue. Jamie Foxx’s portrayal of Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is particularly jarring. However, Garfield’s Peter Parker and Stone’s Gwen Stacy share a fun, playful chemistry that outshines most of the film’s flaws.

The movies’ underwhelming critical reception was a driving factor in Sony abandoning its future sequels and spin-offs and striking a deal with Marvel Studios to include the web-slinger in the MCU, so we never got to see the payoff of the mountain of foreshadowing present in the final ten minutes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Instead, we got left with the wonderful Paul Giamatti ferociously devouring every inch of scenery in his brief stint at The Rhino, which will have to be enough.
