According to a new report by The Verge, Disney has confirmed to investors that Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe title to exclusively stream on the company’s upcoming digital streaming service, Disney+. Disney CEO Bob Iger said that various Disney licensed content will be moving to Disney+.
Previously, MCU titles have been made available via Netflix and other services; Netflix has previously enjoyed success with other Marvel titles such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage.
“We have a number of creative engines across our company, many of which are dedicating their time and talents to develop content for the Disney+ platform,” Iger said to investors during the call. “Many are the same innovators driving the prolific success of Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm, and Marvel. We look forward to leveraging National Geographic for even more content on Disney+.”
Other Disney films set to arrive on the service include the upcoming Dumbo and Toy Story 4. Disney+ will also be home to a variety of exclusive streaming content from Marvel and Star Wars properties.
There is still no release date for Disney+, though it has been previously mentioned that the service will launch in late 2019. Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
