Disney+ Tweaks Parental Controls for Netflix’s Marvel TV Shows

Daredevil and its fellow Netflix shows have a new home: Disney+. And with those additions, the streamer is retooling parental controls due to the Marvel series’ dark themes and graphic violence, especially The Punisher.


Disney announced this week that Daredevil, the Charlie Cox-led Marvel series, in addition to Jessica JonesLuke CageThe Punisher, Iron Fist, The Defenders and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will land on the streamer after leaving their original Netflix home March 1. All the shows will be available March 16 on Disney+.



With the addition of the series, Disney+ users will be prompted to update their parental controls. The Netflix Marvel series will be the most mature content on the streamer in the U.S. thus far. On Netflix, Daredevil and Punisher had TV-MA ratings, meaning they were not suitable for viewers under the age of 17. The parental controls are already in effect in Europe, and include the option to add content restrictions for each profile, as well as add a PIN to lock profiles. Last month, Disney began adding more adult-skewing fare, but nothing as violent as Punisher.


Disney licensed its Marvel shows to Netflix as part of a 2013 pact, with its first two series, Daredevil and Jessica Jones, launching in 2015. By early 2019, the streaming service had canceled all of those series as Disney prepared to launch its competitor, Disney+.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
