Disney+ announces 3 R-rated Marvel movies ‘Deadpool’, ‘Deadpool 2’ and ‘Logan’ will be released today.
What’s new about this is that Disney+ previously had programming for children 13 and under, making it easy to entertain the whole family, and these three movies became the first R-rated movies on the platform.
Disney+ didn’t even have R-rated movies, even though 20th Century Pictures, the producer of these three films, is a subsidiary of Disney.
Disney+ subscribers outside the U.S. will watch adult-oriented movies and TV shows on Star’s subchannels.
U.S. viewers watch these shows on Hulu, which is only available to U.S. and Japanese subscribers.
I wonder what impact the arrival of the ‘Deadpool’ series and ‘Logan’ on Disney+ will have on Disney’s streaming strategy.
