Disney+ Announces Streaming Dates for Marvel’s ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’
Disney+ is going to be the home of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are just a few kinks to work out first. Mainly, Disney has to wait for their deals with other streaming services to lapse, deals they made before they launched their own streaming service. There’s not much longer to wait though. Thor: Ragnarok is already slated for Disney+ in December and three more Marvel titles will be available on Disney+ by mid-2020.
Scanning the list of Movies A-Z reveals many titles that are not yet on Disney+. However, they list the dates on which they will premiere. So now we know when to expect Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp after they fulfill their contract with Netflix. You can add these Marvel titles to your Disney+ watchlist now ahead of their arrival on the streaming platform!
When you can watch Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ on Disney+
After his debut in Captain America: Civil, Black Panther set new records with his solo movie. Black Panther topped the solo movies of Iron Man, Spider-Man and Captain America and there’s a Black Panther sequel on the way in 2022, but for now you have to turn to Netflix to watch the original.
That all ends March 4. That’s when Disney+ lists Black Panther is coming to their streaming service. Reserve your trip to Wakanda now! T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) are waiting.
Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is already on Disney+. When will they snap up ‘Infinity War’?
When Avengers: Infinity War opened in 2018, Marvel fans had to wait a whole year to find out how The Snap could be reversed and who could still be saved. Now fans can watch Avengers: Endgame on Disney+ but have to wait until next summer if they want to watch the epic two-parter back to back.
Disney+ lists June 25 as the date Avengers: Infinity War comes to their streaming service. It’s the biggest Marvel crossover by far. Endgame brings everyone together in the end but Infinity War manages to juggle them all throughout the movie and no character feels lacking. The ending is a lot easier to take when you can jump right into Endgame too.
‘Ant Man and Wasp’ finally team up with Disney+
The original Ant-Man is already on Disney+. The sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp finally gave Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) a chance to suit up as The Wasp and put her name in the title. This miniature superhero duo is committed to Netflix for the time being, but they will join their Disney+ brethren July 29, 2020.
That’s over two years from when the film came out in theaters July 6, 2018. Ant-Man and the Wasp fills an important gap in the MCU too. Since Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) escaping the Quantum Realm gave the Avengers the key to reversing Thanos’s Snap in Avengers: Endgame, Ant-Man and the Wasp is the movie that sets up Scott’s Quantum time, albeit only in a mid-credits tag.
