Disney+ announced today that the live-action Marvel TV shows, which were previously only available on Netflix, will be coming to the streaming service on March 16, 2022.
The Marvel TV shows will be available on Disney+ in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
Coming to Disney+ are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher, plus Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the U.S., giving fans access to more from the Marvel collection, all in one place.
With the addition of these titles, Disney+ will concurrently release an update to its Parental Controls in the U.S. that will prompt all subscribers to update their settings.
“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,” said Michael Paull, President of Disney Streaming.
“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.”
These Marvel TV shows will also be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
The dedicated Marvel brand page on Disney+ already serves as home to the largest Marvel collection with hundreds of hours of movies and shows.
This includes the Marvel Studios movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther.
Also available are other Marvel movie franchises like X-Men; Disney+ Original series like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye; animated series, including the Disney+ Original series from Marvel Studios, What If…?; specials and shorts, and documentaries that go behind the scenes like Marvel Studios Assembled.
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 rating restrictions for each profile as well as to add a PIN to lock profiles.
Those who 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.
Disney+ is the dedicated streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, as well as the new general entertainment content brand in select International markets, Star. Disney+ is available on most internet-connected devices and offers commercial-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live-action and animated series, and short-form content.
Alongside unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of film and television entertainment, the service is also the exclusive streaming home for the latest releases from The Walt Disney Studios. Disney+ is available as a standalone streaming service or as part of The Disney Bundle, which gives subscribers access to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+.
