What Marvel Movies Did Disney Remove?

In recent years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become one of the most successful and lucrative franchises in movie history. However, not all of the movies that have been produced under this umbrella have remained available for streaming or purchase.

In fact, Disney has removed several Marvel movies from its platform for various reasons. Let’s take a closer look at what Marvel movies Disney has removed.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

One of the earliest entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was The Incredible Hulk, which starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner and his big green alter-ego. However, despite its initial success, this movie has been removed from Disney’s streaming platform. The reason for this is that Universal Studios actually owns the distribution rights to The Incredible Hulk, which means that Disney cannot include it in its library of MCU movies.

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home

While both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home were produced by Sony Pictures rather than Disney-owned Marvel Studios, they were still included as part of the MCU thanks to a deal between the two studios. However, this deal eventually fell apart after negotiations broke down between Sony and Disney. As a result, both Spider-Man movies are no longer available on Disney’s streaming service.

Avengers: Infinity War

When Avengers: Infinity War was first released in theaters, it was a huge hit with audiences and critics alike. However, fans who have since tried to watch it on Disney+ may have noticed that something is missing – specifically, an entire scene involving Bruce Banner and the Ancient One. This scene was cut from the movie after its theatrical release due to time constraints but was never added back in for home video releases.

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is one of the most beloved movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but some fans were disappointed to discover that it was missing a key feature when it was released on Disney+. Specifically, the movie’s director’s commentary track was not included. However, this has since been remedied, and the commentary track is now available for streaming.

In conclusion, while Disney’s Marvel library is extensive and impressive, there are some notable omissions that fans should be aware of. Whether due to distribution rights issues or failed negotiations between studios, these missing movies have left a noticeable gap in the MCU canon. Nevertheless, there are still plenty of great Marvel movies available for fans to enjoy on Disney+, so there’s no need to despair!
