When Marvel decided to make TV shows based on MCU characters for Disney+, they made one of their best decisions in years. Ever since the first MCU series, Wandavision, premiered in January 2021, the MCU shows have been bonafide hits and became some of the most talk about TV shows of 2021. But before we got this deluge of shows, there was a time when Marvel, via the banner of Marvel TV, partnered with other companies to create shows not related to the main MCU timeline.

Arguably the most successful to come out of this partnership were the Netflix Marvel shows. Starting with Daredevil and continuing with the Defenders series, most of these shows were commercial and critical successes, becoming must-see content on Netflix. But sadly, the era has come to an end as these shows are all set to leave Netflix on March 1.

MARVEL SHOWS LEAVING NETFLIX

When you head to the main pages of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, The Defenders, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, you’ll see a reminder on top that says that the last day you can watch them will be on February 28. That is because, as reported by Deadline, Netflix will lose the licensing agreement to these shows to Disney on midnight of February 28. For the past few years now, Disney has had the rights to many of the characters featured in these shows. Hence the appearance of Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home and Kingpin in Hawkeye. As to where the Netflix Marvel shows will head to next, they will be available to stream on Disney+ starting March 16.

END OF AN ERA

Seeing all these shows leave Netflix is definitely weird considering how popular they are and have remained staples of the Netflix lineup. It’s normal for non-Netflix movies and shows to leave the streaming service on a monthly basis. But not when it’s Netflix-produced. It’s clear that Disney is looking to keep everything in-house from now on and it will be sad to see these shows leave Netflix.

But on the bright side, we may be seeing more of these characters in the future. After all, Charlie Cox, the actor who plays Daredevil, is open to returning as the character in future MCU projects. And the introduction of the multiverse means that it won’t be too hard to introduce characters like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones into the MCU timeline.

If you have seen Netflix’s Marvel shows already, then we suggest you binge watch them again considering how there’s still no word on when exactly Disney+ is coming to the Philippines. And if you haven’t seen any of the shows, now would be a perfect time to do so. They’re arguably some of, if not the best, non-MCU Marvel entertainment to watch. If you have limited time, we recommend you check out Daredevil season one to three, Jessica Jones season one, and The Punisher season one first as they’re the best in the entire lineup.
