Marvel Netflix Shows and Agents of Shield Coming to Disney+
Disney+ has announced that the slate of Marvel shows that were created and hosted by Netflix will be going to their new home as part of Disney+‘s lineup. On March 16th, seven Marvel series will be arriving on the streaming platform in North America, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The streamer said that this decision “made the most logical sense to best serve Marvel fans.”
The previously hosted Netflix titles include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., opening up the Marvel extended library to all Marvel fans in one place for the first time ever.
Michael Paull, President of Disney Streaming, said:
“Disney+ has served as the home for some of the most beloved brands in the industry, and the addition of these live-action shows brings more from the Marvel brand together, all in one place. We have experienced great success with an expanded content offering on Disney+ across our global markets and are excited to continue that here in the U.S. as well by offering our consumers not only great content with the new Marvel additions, but also a set of features that help ensure a viewing experience most suitable for them and their family.”
With these new series joining the streaming platform, and the mature content that the series brings, Disney+ is going to implement additional options to their existing parental controls.
A statement from the streamer explained:
“As Disney+ continues to grow and evolve, we remain responsive to changes on the platform to ensure we retain the trust of our consumers and uphold our reputation by offering them not only great content but also a set of features that help ensure a viewing experience most suitable for them and their family.”
According to Disney:
“When opening Disney+ for the first time on or after March 16, all subscribers in the U.S. will be prompted to update their Parental Controls. This includes the option to select content ratings restrictions for each profile as well as to add a PIN to lock profiles. Subscribers can also enable a Kid-Proof Exit feature to ensure viewers cannot leave their Kids Profile without completing an exit challenge. Those that choose to keep their settings the same will continue to enjoy Disney+ as they always have within a TV-14 content rating environment, with the option to make changes at any time under Profile settings.”
These could be steps to broaden the content tailored to adults outside of Hulu as has been the case for some time now. With Charlie Cox making a cameo appearance and confirming we will see him again in the MCU, now is as good a time as ever to brush up on these series as we continue to dive deeper into the next phase of the MCU.
