Disney is ready to disrupt other online streaming services by launching Disney+. The online streaming service will be launched internationally on 12th November 2019. The relatively cheap service will have content from the precious Disney vault including Marvel, Star Wars and much more.
Talking about the content for Disney+, we cannot forget the recently acquired Fox properties. Although the fans would expect that Deadpool will be a part of Disney+, but that is not happening.
There has been a lot of debate about the future of the Merc with a Mouth within Disney and Marvel. The main issue is regarding the R-rated nature of Deadpool movies. Deadpool movies are full of violence and sexually themed content in contrast to PG-13 content of most other Disney and other Marvel movies. Hence, not everything under the Mickey Mouse banner will be included on Disney+.
CEO Bob Iger explained in a recent interview with Bloomberg. While promoting the upcoming streaming service – a task that hardly seems necessary – he confirmed that some of Fox’s more adult-oriented content, such as the Deadpool movies and Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy series, wouldn’t be available – even though about 30 seasons of The Simpsons will be.
Adult oriented shows will be available on Hulu instead. This also seems to be the case for other Fox movies like Logan, which are more likely to appear on Hulu. We have to wait for the final listings of the show, but it seems things will remain the same.
The little setback regarding the Deadpool movies won’t stop people from buying the service. After all, its launch will be accompanied by the release of several anticipated projects, including the new High School Musical series, as well as The Mandalorian and Lady and the Tramp. And on top of all of that, it’ll also feature several, already-released blockbusters such as Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, and the entire Skywalker saga.
