With the release of Avengers: Endgame and the massive amounts of money it’s raking in for Disney, what comes after it? We aren’t talking about Phase 4, but that will come later. We are talking about when will it appear on streaming services? More notably, when will it appear on Disney+ streaming service?
During a quarterly earnings report on Wednesday, Disney CEO made the announcement that Avengers: Endgame will arrive on the Disney+ streaming service on December 11, 2019. That makes it over a month later than the official launch which is slated to happen on November 12th.
Iger also noted that the company is “very pleased with our Q2 results and thrilled with the record-breaking success of Endgame,” adding that it is currently the second-highest grossing film of all time, following James Cameron’s Avatar. Endgame broke records with its release, pulling in more than $1.2 billion during its opening weekend, which topped Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $517 million worldwide opening weekend.
This obviously falls in line with Disney’s plans from the beginning. Last year, they noted that Ant-Man and the Wasp would be the last films released on their Netflix deal. Meaning that Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame would be released on their own service. That would, also, indicate that Captain Marvel would be available on the service at launch, with the follow-up coming a month later.
Now, we can be certain that the Blu-ray and DVD version of the film will be released by the end of summer, which is normally the case for late April releases. However, to capitalize on their success, we could even assume that they release it earlier for that cash grab hype.
The Disney+ streaming service launches on November 12, 2019 for $6.99 a month, or $69.99 annually. Keep in mind, if you pay for the year up-front, which locks you in on the lower, which is sure to go up in 2020. It will contain their Disney library, originals, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and every other film in their library. Not to mention, it’s a lot cheaper than Netflix.
