Did Disney Plus Remove Marvel Movies?

Disney Plus has become a popular streaming service for all ages in recent years. With its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment in 2009, it became the go-to platform for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there has been some speculation that Disney Plus has removed Marvel movies from its platform.

Is it true?

The answer is both yes and no. Disney Plus did remove some Marvel movies from its platform, but not all of them.

Which Marvel movies were removed?

In March 2021, Disney Plus removed several Marvel movies from its platform due to licensing agreements with other streaming services. These included:

  • The Avengers
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  • Captain America: Civil War
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Doctor Strange
  • Thor: Ragnarok
  • Black Panther

These movies were removed because they were licensed to other streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu before Disney Plus acquired the rights to stream them.

Why did Disney Plus remove these movies?

Disney Plus removed these movies because they don’t want to compete with themselves on other platforms. They also don’t want their customers to have to pay for multiple streaming services just to watch their favorite Marvel movies.

Will these movies return to Disney Plus?

The good news is that most of these movies will return to Disney Plus in the near future. The licenses with other streaming services will expire soon, and once they do, these films will be available to stream again on Disney Plus.

However, some films like Black Panther may take longer to return since it was recently added to Netflix.

What Marvel movies are still available on Disney Plus?

Thankfully, there are still plenty of Marvel movies to enjoy on Disney Plus. These include:

  • Iron Man
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • Iron Man 2
  • Thor
  • Captain America: The First Avenger
  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming
  • Thor: Ragnarok (until September 2021)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (until August 2021)
  • Ant-Man and The Wasp (until July 2021)

Conclusion:

Disney Plus did remove some Marvel movies from its platform, but it was only temporary due to licensing agreements with other streaming services. Most of these movies will return to Disney Plus soon, and there are still plenty of Marvel movies available to watch in the meantime. So, fans can rest assured that they won’t have to go without their favorite superhero movies for long!
