Marvel and Netflix have long enjoyed a shared ecosystem but that will change soon. Marvel’s parent company, Disney, is gearing up to launch a streaming service and Marvel movies could be in that playlist. However, before that all happens, Marvel’s Black Panther will stream on Netflix from September 4.
Netflix is home to several of Marvel’s web series. In fact, Netflix counts Daredevil and Jessica Jones as the initial crowd pullers – at least in India. Netflix also commissioned three other Marvel web series, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and The Defenders. Iron Fist and Luke Cage have both been set up for a second season.
