Netflix’s Marvel series, which includes Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and more, are only a few days away from leaving the streaming platform to find a new home. Just earlier today, we’ve learned that the new home would end up being Disney+ after all. What has any confusion is that the announcement is purely through Canada, which offers the Star branding for mature content. Well, a new report by That Hashtag Show hints that there’s a chance that not only will they also release in the US version but also unedited.
Disney has made some bizarre choices by editing and censoring some of its films. Yet, it seems that they might luckily leave these projects untouched, something even the showrunner of Luke Cage, Cheo Hodari Coker, feared in a recent Twitter thread discussing the history of the project before it leaves Netflix. The US version will release around the same time as the announced March 16th date. So, violence and language will remain the same.
The way Disney+ will handle these more mature projects is through the new Parental Guidance content warning. It may also open up the path for other projects like Deadpool or Logan finding their way to the regular Disney+. There is currently no word if we should expect these projects to retain their “Marvel” logo and end up alongside other Marvel TV projects, or with the recent appearances of Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. We’ll have to wait a few more weeks until we find out.
