Marvel’s Netflix shows, which now includes Agents of SHIELD, will be heading to Disney Plus in the UK and US later this month. Disney made the announcement that a wave of Marvel shows, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage would debut on the service from March 16. The Punisher will further feature on the service, including the limited series spin-off The Defenders.
They’ll be available to stream in Ireland, Canada Australia, and New Zealand too. However, there is a drawback for US fans with a Disney Plus subscription. They’ll be required to set parental controls due to some of the non-family-friendly, grittier content arriving on the platform, most notably Daredevil and The Punisher.

The news broke last week that a number of popular Marvel shows would be leaving Netflix for good and become available in selected regions. The transition to Disney Plus is understandably a frustrating one for fans without a subscription. The move however will expand Disney Plus’s ever-growing catalogue of Marvel productions on the platform, which right now includes almost everything a die-hard Marvel fan could need.
Disney Plus is currently home to every film from the MCU franchise beginning with Iron Man to Shang-Chi, (minus The Incredible Hulk), and the so-far-released shows Wandavision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye.

A home release date for Spider-Man: No Way Home was announced last week, and we can likely expect Tom Holland’s third Spidey film to land on Disney Plus at some point in the near future. No Way Home is expected to arrive on Starz within the next six months, and while we wait, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is next up on the schedule, slated for release from May 6.
