Prior to Disney+, Netflix was actually the home of Marvel series like “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and “Luke Cage” series, but apparently they’re getting evicted in a few weeks.
This last weekend viewers of these series noticed a sash stating “This show is available until March 1st.” This is because the license for Netflix has ended and the rights have reverted to Disney, which owns Marvel.
This means the series, which also include “Iron Fist,” “The Defenders ,” and “The Punisher,” can now be added to the Disney+ library.
As for the characters, their non-compete clauses are also expiring. Netflix’s deal with its four original Marvel shows – “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist,” and “Luke Cage” – had a clause that prevented the title characters from appearing “in any non-Netflix series or film for at least two years after cancellation.”
Marvel’s “Daredevil” was the first of the series to air, and it was cancelled in 2018. That is why Daredevil actor Charlie Cox was able to cameo in “Spider-Man: No Way From Home,” and Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio was able to cause trouble on the “Hawkeye” series.
The remainder of the Marvel series on Netflix were cancelled in 2019, so they should be free to be used again any time now.
In the meantime you still have a few weeks to binge the series on Netflix, and we’ll let you know when they’re available at their new home.
