'Captain Marvel' Will Be First Disney Movie to Skip Netflix

'Captain Marvel' Will Be First Disney Movie to Skip Netflix”

Iger also said there was no intention to bring Hulu, ESPN+ and Disney+ together, and the company had taken the view that "we'd serve the consumer better by segregating all three".

Chairman Bob Iger says the upcoming film, starring Brie Larson, will be the first to skip streaming on Netflix after its theatrical run.

Chief financial officer Christine McCarthy meanwhile said that Disney would take a hit to the tune of US$150 million on operating income this year from its decision to withhold content from third party providers in the build-up to the launch of Disney+.

In other news, Captain Marvel will be the first of Disney's movies to exclusively stream on Disney+, as the company seems to no longer hand out licenses to competitors. Likewise, they may not perfectly align with past Marvel Cinematic Universe installments like the Captain America trilogy, the Avengers films, or the Thor movies.

Disney's own movie and TV show streaming service, Disney+, will arrive around the end of 2019 and when it does it is likely to have a stellar line-up of content.

"During another call with investors in 2017, Iger said, "[Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel-branded.

One of the franchises that Disney will get when its deal to buy the bulk of 20th Century Fox's assets is complete is the Deadpool series.

As it stands, the order itself is an exception to the initial rule as Iger confirmed that Disney's primary content strategy will be to focus on internally-sourced programming, starting with High School Musical, Monsters Inc, Marvel and Star Wars IPs.

Disney will preview Disney+ to investors at a meeting on April 11, but the company has not announced when the service will launch for the public or how much it will cost.
