Disney+ has big plans for Marvel shows now that they are leaving Netflix


Netflix made the preemptive strike by canceling Iron FistLuke Cage and their best Marvel television series in Daredevil.

After they air season 2 of The Punisher and season 3 of Jessica Jones, they will cancel those as well.

Marvel doesn’t seem to care and that said as much in an interview Variety conducted with Kevin Feige, the Marvel Studios President.

While Netflix is breaking up with Marvel — mostly due to the Disney+ streaming service that is coming — the comic book giant has huge plans to bring more long-form TV shows to life under their own banner.

Marvel released their 20th film under the MCU banner (which started with Iron Man) and their 22nd movie, Avengers: Endgame will change the entire movie world to start anew with Spider-Man: Homecoming – Far From Home.

They have also worked hard on the small screen — keeping the shows under their banner slightly interconnected with the movies.

On ABC, they made Marvel’s Agents of SHIELDMarvel’s Agent Carter and The Inhumans. On Netflix, they released Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders and The Punisher.

That is a lot of entertainment.

Marvel has no plans to slow down.

On the big screen, there will be more Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy and new movies with characters like The Eternals and more.

On DIsney+, Marvel will take what they did at Netflix and amp it up to sell their own streaming service. While they are not likely to continue the stories from Netflix — despite the huge success of properties like Daredevil — Feige said more is coming.

"“We are going to tell stories for the streaming service that we wouldn’t be able to tell in a theatrical experience — a longer-form narrative, that’s what comics are, it’s about as longform a narrative as exists.”"

This means that Disney+ will keep telling stories just like Marvel told on Netflix. Already announced are series based on Loki (with Tom Hiddleston returning as the God of Mischief) and another on Scarlet Witch and Vision (with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany returning).

There will also be a series starring Winter Soldier and Falcon (leading to speculation that Captain America’s two buddies might be teaming up after a tragic end to Avengers: Endgame).

There are also big rumored properties.

Kevin Feige already said that people behind-the-scenes have been talking about Moon Knight. There have also been grumblings about a Hawkeye series (or will it be Ronin?).

Fans who hated to hear that Netflix was dropping some of their favorite Marvel series can cheer up with the fact that more is coming very soon from Disney+.
