Netflix Marvel shows on Disney Plus

You'll have a bunch more Marvel shows available to stream on Disney Plus from March 16.

Disney

Marvel TV series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher and The Defenders are joining Disney Plus in the US on March 16, Disney said Tuesday. They're coming to the streaming service after leaving Netflix at the end of February.

The shows, which rolled out on Netflix from 2015 to 2019, will also be available on Disney Plus in Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. They'll hit the service in all other countries where Disney Plus is available later this year.

These Marvel Cinematic Universe series were made before Disney Plus launched, so they were created and branded for Netflix, but rights reverted back to Marvel parent company Disney on Feb. 28. 

All seven seasons of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, which aired on the Disney-owned ABC from 2013 to 2020 and were previously available on Netflix, will come to Disney's service along with the other shows.

It's unclear whether any of the shows will get more seasons on Disney Plus, and the company declined to comment on future programming plans. Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) showed up in Spider-Man: No Way Home and his nemesis Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) appeared in the Disney Plus Hawkeye series, suggesting Marvel is eager to integrate these characters into its new productions.

The former Netflix Marvel shows were pretty violent (particularly Punisher), so US Disney Plus subscribers will be prompted to update their parental controls from March 16. These features, which are already available in Europe, include the option to add content restrictions for profiles and add a PIN to lock profiles.
