This has caused a lot of disputes in the past. Although Daredevil got canceled, fans are still hoping for another season. And now that Netflix’s Marvel shows are coming to Disney+ what can you expect for the future of Daredevil? Well, continue reading to find out!
As this is a big milestone, Michael Paull himself addressed the fans regarding the news. In his official words:
“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. 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.”

Why are Netflix’s Marvel shows coming to Disney+ ?
The shows which were made before Disney’s decision of connecting them to the Cinematic Universe, were all under Netflix’s control. Even though they were Marvel related characters, Disney could not decide any of their fates without having Netflix’s approval. However this was a contract for a limited period of time. And now that it is almost over, the shows are finally coming to Disney+.
Along with the updated list of Marvel shows, Disney has also revised its list of parental guidelines. This is because these shows are quite violent and are not suitable for kids to watch. The nudity is also much higher than the normal Marvel shows which got made recently. Hence it is advisable for parents to coordinate with the new updated guidelines.
