Avengers: Endgame will land on Disney + a month earlier than expected, from December 11 to November 12 in the United States. The date changes Endgame a launch title.
Disney CEO Bob Iger announced this during a telephone conversation with investors in May Endgame would be available on Disney + on December 11. Iger noticed that EndgameThe placement would come "just a month after we launch the service." That date was later repeated by Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige on D23, Disney's biennial fan convention, in August.
An announcement badge from the official Disney + account did not indicate why the change was made. It is becoming increasingly clear that having spectacular titles is important for Disney when it comes to bringing in subscribers. Disney signed a deal with Starz, including showing a one-time promotional ad for the premiere network (which customers see as soon as they sign up for Disney +) for certain films, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens, appear on Disney + at the launch.
That is also the reason why certain Marvel titles like it Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War are not available at launch. Disney & # 39; s previous deal with Netflix, including films released between January 2016 and December 2018, means that those films will remain on Netflix until the end of 2019. That's why Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not there either. They will be rolled out from 2020 to Disney +.
But don't worry: there are now a few other Marvel movies to watch. Iron Man, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and Captain Marvel will all be on Disney + at the launch. That only means … the majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not available. In the end almost all MCU films end up on Disney +. (There is no word yet about whether Disney will get the streaming rights for this Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.) It's just going to take some time.
The full launch line-up of Disney +, including avataris now available.
