When Marvel announced it was pulling its Netflix series on March 1, they were announced as going to Disney+ everywhere except for the U.S. market.
This was mostly due to the TV-MA designation given to these series, which include “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” “The Defenders,” and “The Punisher,” and it was possible they could appear on Hulu instead because of this.
Today Disney+ made the announcement that these series, along with ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (which was also streaming on Netflix) would indeed be finding a new home on Disney+ in all markets.
In the U.S., all six series will be available starting March 16, 2022. They will be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
To accomodate the introduction of TV-MA programming (equivalent to an R-rating in features), Disney+ says it will be updating its existing Parental Controls in the U.S. This feature has already been implemented internationally.
This move will make Disney+ the home to almost all of Marvel’s series, except for the two animated series “M.O.D.O.K.” and “Hit-Monkey,” which will remain on Hulu, for now.
Which of the newly acquired series will you stream first on March 16? Let us know in the comments!
