If you’re a Netflix subscriber and you’ve regularly relied on Netflix as a means to eventually consume movies set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then I have some bad news for you…it won’t be happening for much longer. Yes, I know. We’ve known about the transition that Disney will be making away from Netflix into their own streaming service for quite some time now, but thanks to a new report from the New York Times, we now have some semblance of an idea of when that will be…sort of.
According to the outlet, Captain Marvel — a film that’s set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019 — will be the first Marvel movie that will not head to the Netflix streaming platform following its theatrical, digital, and physical release. Up until now, after a film hit theaters, it came to digital, then Blu-ray/DVD, and finally streaming services like Netflix. Now, thanks to this report, we know that from Captain Marvel on, they will be heading to Disney’s own platform.
So does that give us more of an idea of when the streaming platform will hit? Well, maybe kinda but not really. Pretty much, Marvel movies hit Netflix eight or nine months after their theatrical debut, and all that really proves is that Captain Marvel would normally likely hit around November or December 2019…which is perhaps a little after we expected their service to hit.
In short, this news is a bit obvious, but it’s nice to hear something of a confirmation. Will the MCU films be enough to sway you over to Disney’s eventual streaming service? Sound off down below!
