Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson will be available to stream on Disney+ on the streaming service’s launch date, Nov. 12, 2019.

Captain Marvel is the first new Disney movie in three years that will not be added to Netflix. We learned this information a while ago. Recently, Disney announced Captain Marvel will be on Disney+, their new streaming service, when the streaming service launches on Nov. 12, 2019.

Captain Marvel premiered in theaters around the world on March 8, 2019. With the Netflix deal, it took new Disney movies, including all the Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar movies, as well, about eight months to be released on Netflix. This length of time, from premiere to release on the streaming service, is right in line with that timing.

This movie will not be the only new Marvel movie on Disney+ at the launch. According to Decider, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp and a few other Marvel movies will be available on Nov. 12. We’ll have to wait and see when the whole library will be available.

Disney announces the news during their Investor’s Day meeting and on Twitter.

Trending. Disney+ is way cheaper than Netflix. light

A few of those new Marvel and other Disney movies, like Avengers: Infinity War, will also be on Netflix when the streaming service launches. We’ll let you know when those movies will leave the streaming service for Disney+.

Disney+ will only cost about half the price of a Netflix subscription at $70 per year or $7 per month, depending on the plan you choose. That’s a great price, and subscribers will get a lot of good, cheap content for a while.

Of course, this is a blow to Netflix, but I think there are a few things working in Netflix’s favor. Disney+ is losing billions this year setting up the infrastructure and all the licensing money Netflix was willing to pay them, according recode.

And, as we know from experience with Netflix, this cheap subscription price is not going to last forever. It’ll last just long enough until they carve out their space by undercutting the market and then it’ll get more expensive. Disney has the money to bankroll this for a long time, but they aren’t doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. That’s not how it works.
