Disney May Not Be Able to Move Its Marvel Series From Netflix

Confusion and concern was stirred up among Marvel fans earlier this year when parent company Disney announced plans to move forward with its own original direct-to-consumer streaming platform created to compete with services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. Iger then disclosed in September that the service will also include Marvel and "Star Wars" movies.

"What Disney going direct to consumer means, I don't really know, and I'm not positive that they do, either".

On the film front, the company is still ramping up production. Next year, the company, which now licenses more titles than it produces but plans to reach a 50-50 split by 2019, will release 60 kids' shows and 20 anime originals. "So, we have two in the pipeline right now and I think the capacity to do as many as four or five a year".

Sarandos has prioritized original series that customers can't get anywhere else because they endear customers to Netflix. "It will be substantially below Netflix because we'll have substantially less volume".

For now, Marvel fans can rest assured that they'll still have access to the Netflix shows. As the company continues to grow its subscriber base outside the US, it's now producing local language original content that has been released in six countries, he said. That might change if the popular, influential streaming giant known as Netflix is serious about making this a reality.

One area that Netflix appears content not to disrupt is the live sports rights business. They recently struck a deal with Mark Millar's Millarworld to start publishing comics, and they have plans to release 30 scripted series and original 80 movies in 2018, according to Sarandos. He added: "There's some opportunity down the road" for more licensing and merchandising, "but relative to the big prize, it's pretty small".
