There was a time, before the existence of Disney Plus when Netflix was considered worldwide as the platform and home of the entire universe. Marvel.
Thanks to an exclusivity deal signed almost at the end of Phase 1 of the MCU, the streaming entertainment service hosted a lot of exclusive productions.
Some series had higher quality and consistency than others, but thanks to this agreement we were able to enjoy Daredevil, The Defenders, Jessica Jones, and other adventures.
Unfortunately, it seems that everything has come to an end since a few hours ago Netflix began to send notifications about the departure of its catalog of these series.
Netflix says goodbye to its Marvel series
The colleagues of What’s on Netflix were among the first to notice that when entering the application to try to watch their exclusive Marvel series, such as The Defenders, the notification notice about the next output of the service’s catalog began to be displayed.
This caused relative noise among subscribers and followers of the MCU since even with the launch of Disney Plus these productions remained available on the site.
They were the friends of TheVerge who were able to obtain confirmation that these exit notifications were real and that the days of the Marvel series on Netflix were numbered.
All because the exclusivity rights for the platform will expire on February 28, 2022. Said rights to these productions are owned by Marvel Studios and therefore now belong to Disney.
Therefore, when this date is fulfilled, the control over these series and their diffusion would return to the company that originally produced them.
What we do not know here is if they will all be added now as exclusive titles to the Disney Plus catalog.
In any case, what will inevitably happen is that everything will disappear from Netflix as of March 1, 2022.
So far the series showing this exit notification is The Defenders, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Punisher.
