Disney decided to advance the launch of Avengers: Endgame in its streaming service: the last film in the Infinite Saga will be in the catalog of Disney + later this month in the USA and four more countries. It was only scheduled for December. In Brazil, the Netflix competitor should only arrive in November 2020.
The official Disney + account on twitter published the release dates for Avengers: Endgame, and they coincide with the service’s debut in five countries: November 12 in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands; and November 19 in Australia and New Zealand. Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, said earlier that the film would premiere in streaming starting December 11.
In this way, Disney + will be released with seven Marvel films in the catalog:
- Captain Marvel
- Iron Man
- Iron Man 3
- Ant Man
- Thor the Dark World
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Avengers: Endgame
Netflix keeps Avengers: Infinity War until December
The list is expected to grow next year. By the end of 2019, Netflix will have exclusivity in the U.S. over Disney movies released between January 2016 and December 2018, as Thor: Ragnarok, black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Disney + is striving to increase the catalog: the company has made an agreement with Starz, a cable TV channel, to place films such as Star Wars The Force Awakens in streaming. In return, it will display a channel advertisement to users who sign up for the service.
In Brazil, Disney + will only be launched in November 2020. HBO Max, which will have an exclusive series in the universe of game of Thrones, is scheduled to debut in Europe and Latin America in 2021.
Still, Netflix needs to keep an eye on competitors in Brazil, including services like Amazon Prime Video – which has been adding Disney titles -, Telecine Play, Globoplay, Starz Play, Paramount +, among others.
