Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Homecoming has grossed over $700 million worldwide since its release in early July, making it the latest hit from the shared Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is still playing in over 3,000 theaters, but retailers have already announced a variety of exclusives to drop when the latest Spidey flick swings onto store shelves: domestically, Best Buy, Target, and Amazon will all offer specially packaged editions, while international retailers like Zavvi and HMV will release a more expensive set that comes complete with a comic book and a limited edition figurine.
Sony has yet to officially release an announce date for the Spider-Man: Homecoming 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD, but the movie could hit store shelves on Tuesday, October 17th, the same day Sony is expected to release Sam Raimi’s retired Spider-Man trilogy on 4K UHD. For now, here's a look at all the Spider-Man: Homecoming retailer exclusives currently available for pre-order.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Spider-Man: Homecoming to Blu-ray and the relatively new 4K Ultra HD format, boasting even better picture and audio than standard 1080p Blu-rays. The release will make it only the second Marvel Studios production to be released to the premium format, following Disney's release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on August 22nd. Spider-Man: Homecoming will also be available two weeks earlier than the physical release when purchased digitally, so keeping with the prospective October 17th release date, Homecoming could be yours to stream on Tuesday, October 3rd. The standard and 3D editions, available separately at retailers everywhere, will come with a slew of bonus features that include featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, a director's cut of Peter Parker's home movie, and more.
In the United States, Target will release a Blu-ray set that comes with three exclusives: a comic book, a bonus disc, and packaging that you won't find anywhere else, but you'll have to forego the 4K disc. The set, using the Spider-Man: Homecoming IMAX poster as inspiration, looks like it could be a digibook, which would keep with the "journal" theme of the artwork. Target has yet to announce specifics, but it's likely the included comic book will be Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude, from writer Will Corona Pilgrim and artist Todd Nauck. The two-part comic, released in March and April, adapts Spider-Man's involvement during the Avengers' schism in Captain America: Civil War, where Tom Holland's Spidey made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. Target previously released exclusive bonus discs for Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, each containing a featurette not available on discs carried at other retailers. Target currently has the set available for pre-order at $22.99.
Also in the United States, Best Buy will offer collectors an exclusive steelbook, which comes complete with a 4K UHD disc, a Blu-ray disc, and a digital copy code, encased in steelbook packaging featuring art from popular Marvel Studios artist Ryan Meinerding, who most recently wowed fans at San Diego Comic Con with his Avengers: Infinity War poster. (If the steelbook looks familiar, it borrows its art from the cover of Spider-Man: Homecoming — The Art of the Movie hardcover book.) Best Buy is fond of offering steelbook exclusives for Marvel Studios productions: most recently, Best Buy has released exclusive steels for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, all of which were highly sought after by collectors. The steelbook is currently available for pre-order at $34.99, and it's a smart move to secure a copy as soon as possible if you hope to add it to your collection. Worry not, international fans: you can grab the same steelbook from sites like Amazon Germany and Amazon France.
Online retailer Amazon will offer fans an even niftier exclusive, with the Spider-Man: Homecoming 4K UHD disc housed in a hard plastic case recreating Spider-Man's mask — perfect for any fan wanting Spidey's decapitated head nestled neatly on their entertainment shelf. The set comes engraved with the young hero's spider emblem on the back, and also carries the fun ability to shift Spider-Man's eye lenses, just like in the movie. The set comes with the 4K edition of the film and a digital copy code, but fans hoping to view the film in 3D at home will have to purchase that disc separately. The mask set is currently available for pre-order at $45.99.
Available internationally will be a premium set that comes with a limited edition statue, a comic book, and a heftier price tag. Spider-Man: Homecoming is included on 4K UHD in addition to the exclusive comic book and figurine, which depicts Tom Holland's Spider-Man in battle with Michael Keaton's villainous Vulture. The gift set, housed in a fancy box featuring the Spider-Man: Homecoming teaser poster art, is available from international retailers like Zavvi and HMV for £149.99 (about $200 USD), and is also available for pre-order through Amazon Germany at 139.99 EUR. Zavvi and HMV list the set's release date as November 21st.
