All Marvel Studios Movies Now Available on Disney+!
We are so excited to report that every Marvel Studios movie is now available to stream on Disney+! The final Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film to make its debut on the streaming service – Ant-Man and the Wasp – appeared early Friday morning.
Disney’s Streaming History
Disney formerly had a deal with Netflix whereas each of its new releases (from Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, etc.) would head to Netflix after its theatrical run. Those movies would then stream on Netflix for about 18 months.
Since Disney was planning to launch Disney+, the deal was not renewed for 2019. That being said, all films released in 2018 still had to follow the original deal struck between the two entities.
Films including Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp, were not part of the Disney+ opening roster. However, as those deals expired, these films have made their way over to Disney+.
Ant-Man and the Wasp was the final film under this former deal between Disney and Netflix. Moving forward, any Marvel film Disney releases will be available on Disney+ after its theatrical run.
Spider-Man & Hulk will Not Join Disney+
The only exception to the MCU films on Disney+ are Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-Man is owned and distributed by Sony, so even though the films are part of the MCU, they can not stream on Disney+.
The only other exception is The Incredible Hulk, released in 2008, which was distributed by Universal Pictures.
