After being conspicuously absent from the streaming service since launch, Avengers: Infinity War is finally available to watch on Disney+. The third film in the Avengers series, Infinity War, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim for bringing together all of the superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to battle Thanos. The movie, directed by The Russo Brothers, shocked fans by allowing Thanos to triumph at the climax and killing off half of the all life in the MCU. It was followed by Avengers: Endgame, which became the highest-grossing movie of all time at the box office.
When Disney+ launched late in 2019, it was marketed as being the home of many movie franchises, including Star Wars and Marvel. Despite this, several movies from the MCU weren’t available to stream on the platform at launch, including the Spider-Man films, which are owned by Sony, as well as Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Infinity War. Both films were tied into Netflix deals that meant they wouldn’t appear on Disney+ until the second half of 2020.
Now, Avengers: Infinity War is finally available on the streaming service. Initially slated to appear on Disney+ on June 25, it’s released was delayed by a day to June 26, and it is now available for subscribers. The movie’s presence on the site means that fans can now binge all four Avengers movies on the service, and fills a gaping content gap for Disney.
