Marvel is the final word in most conversations about the most popular western franchises to follow, at least on the big screen. Since 2015, however, it has made a serious push toward streaming audiences with varying degrees of success. It generates buzz, even critical acclaim, and massive accolades, but can sometimes also be huge for the MCU overall. Recently, Disney Plus acquired the Netflix catalog to add to all of their Marvel streaming shows, and the completed list can make for a fun viewing marathon!
All the Marvel Shows You Can Stream on Disney Plus
The Marvel Cinematic Universe shows available on Disney Plus range from dark and moody, to adventurous and energetic, to hilarious. While some appear not to have made a proper connection with the MCU in a more traditional sense, they all have existed with exposure to the events of the franchise in some capacity, especially with the Disney Plus originals. Here is our collected list of all Marvel shows you can watch on the platform by order of release:
- Agents of Shield
- Agent Carter
- Jessica Jones
- Luke Cage
- Iron Fist
- The Defenders
- The Punisher
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
- What If…?
- Moon Knight
- Ms. Marvel
- She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
- Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur
These series have varying degrees of canonicity to them, with the Defenders saga being a prime example of this. Despite changes to the universe, especially in light of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home, some characters have persisted and managed to appear in the current MCU.

Daredevil, aka Matt Murdock played by Charlie Cox, is a great example of this, appearing in Spider-Man, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and even some upcoming projects. Fans will be delighted to see bigger, more ambitious stories that are yet to be told on the streaming platform.
Upcoming MCU Series on Disney Plus
Beyond continuations of hit stories like Loki and What If…? there are quite a few stories yet to be told in the streaming MCU. Some characters have made their debut on the big screen, like Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, who will get their shows, and other hit characters receiving spinoffs!
