Disney+ Gives Netflix's Marvel Shows An Official Title: THE DEFENDERS SAGA

Netflix's defunct Marvel shows, including Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, are now available to stream on Disney+, and the streamer has given them an official title: The Defenders Saga.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher and The Defenders are now available to watch on Disney+, and the streamer has given Netflix's now defunct Marvel shows their own title.

Likely in an effort to distance the TV-MA series from standard Marvel Cinematic Universe content, the former Netflix shows have been cumulatively titled The Defenders Saga.

Though these shows were originally conceived to be part of the main MCU, they haven't been considered canon since the dissolution of Marvel Television and the advent of the Disney+ spinoffs. That said, Marvel Studios has begun to incorporate certain elements and characters such as Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio), with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) rumored to follow at some point.

Disney recently came under fire from the Parents Television Council (PTC), who accused the House of Mouse of "destroying their brand" by showcasing the TV-MA-rated Netflix shows.

“While we applaud Disney+ for improving their parental controls, the mere presence of MA- and R-rated content violates the trust of families, and may well turn them off entirely. There is no need for Disney+ to compete with the explicit content on other streaming platforms. Disney is already at a competitive advantage with a streaming platform that is the safest one out there for families. Its foray into TV-MA-rated fare will forever tarnish its family friendly crown.”

Have you guys checked out any of the (former) Netflix Marvel shows on Disney+ yet? If not, do you plan on giving them a re-watch? Drop us a comment down below.
