Disney Plus launched Tuesday, and while it's missing some Marvel movies it is now letting us know when those titles will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe content on the new streaming service.

For instance, when you search for Black Panther, Disney Plus tells you it's coming soon. "Due to existing agreements, this title will be available on March 4, 2020," the notice says. "Add to your watchlist now." It also includes the trailer, a short description of the movie, the runtime, rating, year released and genre.

Thor: Ragnarok is coming on Dec. 5, 2019; Avengers: Infinity War on June 25, 2020; and Ant-Man and the Wasp will arrive on July 29, 2020. Nothing so far on 2008's The Incredible Hulk, or on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home

There are 16 MCU movies available on Disney Plus launch day: Iron ManIron Man 2Iron Man 3Captain America: The First AvengerCaptain America: The Winter SoldierCaptain America: Civil War, ThorThor: The Dark WorldThe AvengersAvengers: Age of UltronGuardians of the GalaxyGuardians of the Galaxy Volume 2Doctor Strange, Ant-ManCaptain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame.

It's also got new deleted scenes from Avengers: Endgame, several animated series including X-Men and Rocket & Groot, the new Marvel's Hero Project and another new show called Expanding the Universe.

Disney Plus surprised by launching with both seasons of Agent Carter, and one season each of Runaways and Inhumans, but there's no word yet on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which currently lives on Netflix , or Cloak and Dagger, which is on Disney-owned streaming service Hulu . Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, The Defenders, Iron Fist and The Punisher are all canceled Netflix originals. 

Disney Plus also launched Tuesday with the original Star Wars  trilogy, the three prequels and The Force Awakens. We won't have to wait long for Episode 8: The Last Jedi, which Disney Plus says will arrive on Dec. 26. Additional Star Wars content at launch includes original series The Mandalorian, along with The Clone Wars and a whole lot of Lego Star Wars offerings.

The streaming service is also letting us know when Disney movies tied up in Netflix deals are coming, like Christopher Robin, which will be hitting Disney Plus on Sept. 5, 2020.
