If you’re a Marvel fan, chances are you’ve been binging on Disney Plus ever since it launched. With over 20 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it’s easy to lose track of which ones are available on the streaming service and which ones are not. Here’s a rundown of what Marvel movies are missing from Disney Plus.
What Marvel Movies Are Not on Disney Plus?
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The first MCU movie to feature Edward Norton as Hulk, The Incredible Hulk is not available on Disney Plus due to complicated distribution rights. Universal Pictures still owns the distribution rights to the film, making it impossible for it to be included in the Disney Plus lineup.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
Despite Spider-Man being a part of the MCU, the two standalone films featuring Tom Holland as Spidey are not available on Disney Plus. This is because Sony Pictures owns the film rights to Spider-Man and has a deal with Marvel Studios to include him in their films. However, this deal does not extend to streaming services.
The Punisher (2004) and Punisher: War Zone (2008)
Both movies featuring Frank Castle aka The Punisher are missing from Disney Plus. Although they were released by Lionsgate Films, they were produced by Marvel Studios before they became a part of the MCU.
The Blade trilogy starring Wesley Snipes as the vampire hunter is also not available on Disney Plus. Like The Punisher films, these movies were produced by Marvel Studios before they became a part of the MCU.
While there are only a handful of Marvel movies missing from Disney Plus, it’s important to remember that there may be other factors at play when it comes to distribution rights. However, with Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, there’s a chance we may see some of these missing movies added in the future. Until then, we’ll just have to make do with what’s available on the streaming service.
