From March 1, Netflix’s wave of Marvel TV shows, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, will soon be coming off the streaming service permanently, and make the transition to Disney Plus. However, there is a catch. The Marvel shows will only be available on Disney Plus in selected regions. The shows are expected to debut first in Canada from March 16. Release dates for the UK and US have yet to be confirmed, and this story will be updated as more information is released, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, Disney Plus has become the place to be for Marvel fans, with plenty of new shows debuting in the coming months. This notably includes Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight from March 30. Disney Plus is currently home to everything from Phase 4 including the so-far-released shows Wandavision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye.
If that’s not enough, almost every single film in the MCU franchise, (from Iron Man to Shang-Chi, excluding The Incredible Hulk), is available to binge at your leisure, should you have a Disney Plus subscription and a need for some superhero action.
The release of Daredevil and Jessica Jones in 2015 on Netflix inspired a wave of Marvel shows, deemed as Netflix originals, despite remaining connected to the MCU, including Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders. There are signs that these Netflix shows could play bigger roles within the MCU following Charlie Cox’s unexpected cameo during Spider-Man: No Way Home, and his subsequent admission that he’d be returning to the MCU in the future.
Over Christmas, Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin made a return in the final two episodes of Hawkeye, starring Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, further opening the gate for more crossovers. For more MCU content, make sure to check out Flickluster’s latest reviews on Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
