Netflix Is Removing All Its Marvel Shows. Daredevil, Netflix’s March series, premiered in 2015. Throughout the following several years, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and more series were introduced. All as part of the larger MCU. All of these Marvel/Netflix collaborations, however, will be deleted off the service on March 1. It has been verified that the Netflix licence for all of the above-mentioned programmes has expired, with rights reverting to Disney.
When you watch one of these episodes, you’ll see that the intros for Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and Defenders all say they’re departing the streaming service next month. What’s strange about this is the manner in which Netflix is announcing it to users, as first reported by What’s On Netflix.
Marvel and Netflix collaborated from 2015 through 2019, releasing many seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and The Punisher. By 2019, every Netflix/Marvel partnership has been cancelled, with Jessica Jones Season 3 being the year’s final release in June.
Disney, Marvel’s parent company, created its own streaming service, Disney+, a few months after the discontinuation of these episodes. While nothing has been verified, it’s likely that all of these episodes will be moved to Disney+ or will be archived for decades because they are Netflix products.
Disney has already made use of two Netflix TV programmes. Last year, Vincent D’Onofrio returned to the Hawkeye limited series as Wilson Fisk, The Kingpin. In addition, Charlie Cox reprised his role as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home in December. Perhaps Disney is attempting to move the Marvel Universe from Netflix to its own.
