Fans of Charlie Cox and Daredevil will happy to know that his show is finally returning to a streaming platform. That’s not to mention that all the Marvel-produced TV series will follow. However, it might be a bit shocking as to where they are ending up. Starting on March 16th, all of the Marvel television series including Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Defenders, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and The Punisher will be making their way to Disney+. These shows will be available for streaming in the US, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand for the first time.
While it is fantastic news that all these shows are heading to Disney+, it might seem kind of odd considering the majority of them are chock full of bloody and adult content. Well, the family-friendly streaming platform has also implemented a caveat to these shows being available there. Disney+ is going to be releasing stricter family controls because these shows are now being made available. While we are more than thrilled that Charlie Cox and Daredevil can be binge-watched again, we understand that children might not be suitable to watch a 30-minute hallway brawl scene. Of course, that 30 mins is exaggerated, but you get the idea.
Disney+ has also announced that these shows will be coming to all markets later on this year, so if your country of origin was not listed, don’t fret. According to a spokesperson for the streaming platform, “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.” It sounds as if the tightening of parental controls is specifically in relation to the new and more adult content being brought over. That could mean that even more adult-rated content could be on its way as well. Charlie Cox and Jon Bernthal beating people to a pulp are clearly enough to warrant these changes.
Another thing to consider is that this could bode well for the potential that more Charlie Cox and Daredevil content is also being produced or will be produced. Everyone has been begging for the man to return as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, and it could be well on its way. This next part is a spoiler, so look away if you miraculously haven’t seen the newest Spider-Man film. Spider-Man: No Way Home saw Matt Murdock return in lawyer form, as he was representing Peter Parker. While it was a very welcomed sight for the MCU, it was also short-lived. However, that was the official introduction of Daredevil into the MCU, so now we can all patiently wait for a new series or movie to be announced.
With Disney+ making such a big announcement that they have secured these shows for their streaming service, it sounds as if they are wanting to become the hub for all things Marvel, which makes total sense. However, there have been little to no announcements made about when Charlie Cox is set to reprise his role in the MCU. There should be plenty of times he could theoretically pop in, but hopefully, his next foray into the comic-based universe will be more substantial than just a quick cameo.
