Marvel fans who want to get one last look at their favorite heroes on Netflix have less than a month left to do so. The streaming giant has been pushing a popup message to viewers in the UK notifying them that the shows would be leaving Netflix on March 1. It was confirmed that this will likely be the case in all regions.
Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders will all be gone at the start of next month. The series’ were created exclusively for Netflix as a way for marvel to expand their universe with superheroes who weren’t introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. All of the shows were canceled by February of 2019.
There is no word on whether Disney is interested in adding the shows to their streaming service. The company acquired Marvel Entertainment in late 2009 and have since dovetailed the MCU and several other Marvel properties into Disney+. The original report by GamesRadar noted that there were no plans announced for such a swap.
The shows were among the most popular on Netflix, and for good reason. Most of the series’ were well-received by fans who couldn’t get enough of the Marvel Universe. Unless a deal gets done to preserve them, the shows may be lost.
Netflix has not yet commented on the removal of the Marvel programming. Fans assumed it was a matter of time once Disney got involved with the company. Disney+ is the eventual streaming home for almost all remaining Marvel content.
If you’re interested in taking one last look at Daredevil or Jessica Jones, now is your last chance. February is the shortest month of the year, so many viewers could inadvertently miss out. Hopefully, Disney or some other service can pick up and preserve these incredible shows.
