In a move that nobody could have ever foreseen, Disney has decided that the new home of Netflix’s Marvel shows will be its titular streaming service, Disney+.
Disney+ subscribers will be able to check out Daredevil and a bunch of other shows that nobody really cares about beginning on March 16, including Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the MCU’s very first TV spin-off that originally premiered on ABC. New parental controls are also being rolled on that date due to the Netflix shows being mature-rated and containing content that might not be the best fit for children, such as Luke Cage banging Jessica Jones in her apartment.
“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.”
