Disney’s Kevin Mayer Discusses Disney+ And The Future Of The Canceled Marvel Netflix Shows

Kevin Mayer is Disney’s top dealmaker. His official title is Walt Disney direct-to-consumer and international division chairman. His department houses ESPN+, the upcoming Disney+ streaming service and is soon to hold a majority stake in Hulu. However, Mayer will forever be known in the company as the man who flew to New York and made the decision not to leave until Rupert Murdoch’s people agreed to sell their product. “For 10 days, it was late nights and early mornings and over the weekends. I missed the Star Wars premiere and so did my  team.”

Those long 10 days paid off in the end and Mayer lived up to his dealmaker status. On December 14th, 2017, Disney outbid Comcast and purchased Fox’s film and TV studios, FX and National Geographic channels, regional sports networks, Star India and stakes in Hulu and Sky. The entire purchase came out to $71.3 billion.

Now, over a year later, Mayer sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss his many adventures in the “Mouse House.” A few of those questions involved the upcoming Disney streaming service, where Mayer explained how they plan to make the streaming service one that consumers will want to use. Mayer responded:

“We have to take our content and make it as exclusive as we can to our service. We have to make the app and the technology pretty seamless. You can find our content under our key brands, which is a real differentiator for us.”

Mayer also discussed the fate of the now-canceled Marvel shows over at Netflix (DaredevilLuke Cage, and Daredevil) and whether there is any hope for a revival on Disney+.

“They are very high-quality shows. We haven’t yet discussed that, but  I would say that’s a possibility.”

So, after two weeks of drama regarding the canceled shows over at Netflix and whether there is any hope of them being reborn on Disney’s network, Mayer states that it may be possible. While it is simply a statement and with nothing in the works at the moment, it is a statement that provides a small light of hope to those who enjoyed those entertaining products.
