Soon, Disney+ subscribers will be able to catch up on Netflix’s catalog of Marvel superhero shows.
All seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron First, The Defenders, The Punisher and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be streamed on Disney+ from March 16. This announcement comes on the heel of Netflix’s confirmation that these Marvel series will depart from its subscription service. The news puts an end to rumors over what the show’s future holds in store, despite the fact that many fans suspected they would ultimately make their way to Disney’s streaming service.
President of Disney Streaming, Michael Paull, shared:
“Disney+ has served as the home for some of the most beloved brands in the industry, and the addition of these live-action shows brings more from the Marvel brand together, all in one place. We have experienced great success with an expanded content offering on Disney+ across our global markets and are excited to continue that here in the U.S. as well by offering our consumers not only great content with the new Marvel additions, but also a set of features that help ensure a viewing experience most suitable for them and their family.”
When all Marvel Netflix shows become available on Disney+ in around two weeks, all subscribers will be prompted to alter their settings to either enable TV-MA material or to place it under a PIN. Those that enable TV-MA material will have full access to Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and the other Defenders series. Adults may also place particular profiles on a shared account behind a user-selected PIN, while accounts limited to TV-14 or below content will not be able to access these shows. Parents may now add extra safety precautions to their children’s profiles and adjust the content settings at any moment in the future.
The move enables Disney+ subscribers to stream “Daredevil” and all of the other Netflix-Marvel shows besides other MCU original series such as “WandaVision” and “Loki,” as well as MCU films such as “Avengers: Endgame.” Although Daredevil actor Charlie Cox appeared in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” the Sony-produced picture will not be streamed on Disney Plus. All of Tom Holland’s solo “Spider-Man” films are now unavailable on Disney+.
