Marvel has officially confirmed the Disney+ release dates for all of the Netflix shows that left the platform, yesterday. The list which includes “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage”, “Iron Fist,” “The Defenders,” “The Punisher,” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” will release on March 16 on Disney+, where the platform is available (including the US).
In India, all these shows will stream on Hotstar, and in South America, they will hit the Disney-owned, STAR, but probably not in March.
Disney+ has also introduced the parental control system on its platform, which will allow the users to make profiles based on the content rating. Users will also be able to lock their profiles with PIN. If users want to continue with the old settings, they won't be needed to do any changes or create profiles.
“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.”
The list of Marvel content hitting the Disney+ is suited for the mature and adult audience. Few of them are R-rated, which is suited for an 18+ audience and few are 16+. This also opens up the streamer to introduce long-awaited all kinds of mature and violent content like Deadpool. Disney+ can also make films like Blade with more dark and gore settings, which is based suited for the character.
The latest change in the platform also opens the possibility of Jon Bernthal returning as Frank Castle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as The Punisher is officially canon. The same goes with other characters like Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, which can now return for more seasons instead of reboot.
Moon Knight is hitting Disney+ at the end of this month. The leading character is one of the most violent Marvel characters in the comics, and so far the trailer has given a glimpse of it. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige called the series, "Brutal & Bloody" confirming that it is something that audiences has never seen before in any live-action Marvel content.
