Marvel Reportedly Removes Netflix Credit From Latest Disney+ Additions
This month marked the debut of the beloved MCU series that had premiered on that other streaming service, and fans are shocked as Marvel reportedly removes the Netflxii credit from those latest Disney+ additions.
What has been coined by fans as the Defendersverse was long considered the gold standard as far as MCU worldbuilding, and was Marvel Studios’ first real success in the avenue of long-form storytelling.
Daredevil remains one of MArvels best series, with Charlie Cox bringing Matt Murdock/s blind vigilante to life in a way that perfectly honored the iconic comic book character.
This was followed by series like Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, all culminating in The Defenders; with the entire sub-sect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe being defined by its founded approach to the world of superheroes.
The series was part of a collaboration with Netflix that served as the original home of the various series, but it appears as though Marvel is following through on their desire to cut ties with their previous collaborative partner.
First reported by ComicBook.com, Marvel has reportedly removed the Netflix credit from the various series that debut on Disney+ this month.
The series originally began with a small credit during the opening credits that stated, ‘Marvel Television and Netflix Presents,” which has now been taken out completely; along with the similar, “Netflix Original” credit that appeared in the same sequence.
It is interesting, as Marvel’s Netflix series seemed to represent a certain style of MCU content that was similar to the mainstream films, yet something entirely different.
The change also brings to question the continuity issue surrounding the series, as fans are now seemingly expected to consider all of Marvel’s various series- both the Netflix, ABC, and Disney+ original endeavors- as operating within various timelines points in the same continuity.
As interesting and intriguing the change is for the state of Marvel and their level of success, it isn’t surprising; as Marvel has seemed to be actively trying to distance itself from Netflix, with this alteration being yet another manifestation of that.
