The next seven days hardly promise to reinvent the wheel in terms of content coming to Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Hulu and Amazon Prime, but there are still more than a few titles worthy of consideration, whether they be brand new or established classics making their way to a certain platform at long last.
Of course, the marquee release of the week is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which hits HBO Max and theaters on Friday. The majority of Warner Bros.’ hybrid releases have topped the box office, but looking at Gunn’s popularity carried over from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy and the rave reviews coming from all quarters, don’t bet against Task Force X troubling pandemic-era record setters Fast & Furious 9 and Black Widow, although the R-rating could impact the film’s chances of box office success.
It isn’t all about foul-mouthed and wildly irreverent superheroes, though, and you can check out the full list of incomers to the ‘Big Five’ platforms below.

Dean Cain has been finding himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently after his public dressing downs of Seth Rogen, Captain America and more, so that might convince a few folks to check out Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman on HBO Max and see if it plays well through the rose-tinted glasses of fuzzy nostalgia.
Mrs. Doubtfire is coming to Disney Plus, and the classic family comedy is destined to be appointment viewing for audiences of multiple generations, especially when the late, great Robin Williams was trending on what would have been his 70th birthday. Again, it’s not the strongest lineup we’ve ever seen, but there’s more than enough on offer to whittle away the days.
