Marvel Originals is coming to Disney+ later this month; Censorship still in question
Last month, it was revealed that all Marvel shows that were Netflix Originals would be leaving the streaming service, as the platform’s agreement to retain their rights had since expired. Luckily, shows like Jessica Jones and Agents of SHIELD aren’t extinguished forever; they will simply switch to Disney+.
Today we learned exactly when that will happen, as the streaming service earlier tweeted that Marvel’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher and Agents of SHIELD will all be coming to Disney+ at from March 16. 2022.
The news made many fans happy, but not without some concerns about possible censorship. Due to the mature nature of shows like Daredevil and Punisher, many wondered if the family platform would censor some of the more graphic scenes.
Speaking of concerns, Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker had the further to say:
“They’re going to do what they do. It’s theirs,” wrote Coker. “I just hope they don’t sit on it for years to make an easier reboot, or re-release it with a different mix, or muted the N-Word. I would love to do commentary tracks or the original credits.
Currently, it’s unknown if Disney will alter any of these Marvel shows, but we’ll be sure to let you know when they’re all released later this month.
