Marvel Live-Action Series and Parental Controls Coming to Disney+ in the U.S.

Starting March 16, subscribers will have access to ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Jessica Jones,’ ‘Luke Cage,’ ‘Iron Fist,’ and more, along with enhanced content ratings and PIN protection.

Disney+ announced that it will expand its streaming slate of Marvel live-action series titles in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

On March 16, the streaming service will add Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher, plus Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the U.S.

These shows, previously streamed on Netflix, will join a collection already populated by Marvel Studios movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther, along with other Marvel movie franchises like X-Men; Disney+ original series like WandaVision; The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye; animated series, including the Disney+ original series from Marvel Studios, What If…?; specials and shorts, and documentaries that go behind the scenes, like Marvel Studios Assembled.

Additionally, Disney+ will update its parental controls in the U.S., a move that will prompt all subscribers to adjust their settings.

That prompt will include the option to select content ratings restrictions for each profile, and to add a PIN to lock profiles. If subscribers choose to keep their settings the same, they will still be able to watch Disney+ as they normally have within a TV-14 content rating environment, and will have the option to adjust their profile settings at any time.

“Disney+ has served as the home for some of the most beloved brands in the industry, and the addition of these live-action shows brings more from the Marvel brand together, all in one place,” said president of Disney Streaming Michael Paull in a statement. “We have experienced great success with an expanded content offering on Disney+ across our global markets and are excited to continue that here in the U.S. as well by offering our consumers not only great content with the new Marvel additions, but also a set of features that help ensure a viewing experience most suitable for them and their family.”

The Marvel series included in the company’s announcement will also be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
