When is ‘Deadpool’ Coming To Disney Plus (US)

Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool franchise has been a huge box office hit and has naturally gained a massive following across the globe. While on the surface, it doesn’t seem like Deadpool isn’t a good fit for Disney+, things have certainly changed in recent months due to parental controls being added to Disney+. So, when exactly is Deadpool coming to Disney+ in the United States? Read on for everything we know so far.


What is Deadpool About?

Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool, unfortunately, isn’t available to stream on Disney+ in the United States, but that certainly doesn’t mean the door is closed. If you asked us a few months ago, we’d definitely tell you that Deadpool has very little chance of being available on Disney+.

Disney recently introduced parental controls on Disney+ to accommodate the former Netflix Marvel series. This allowed DaredevilLuke CageJessica Jones, and more to be available to stream on Disney+ in the United States.

This means that Disney+ is no longer a strictly family-friendly streaming service. In fact, Disney is planning to add more general entertainment content over the next few months. Disney CEO Bob Chapek recently revealed that over 50% of Disney’s consumer base on Disney+ do not have kids meaning more general entertainment is needed to satisfy that market.

So, what does this mean for Deadpool coming to Disney+ in the United States? Officially nothing at the moment, but to the incredible popularity of the Deadpool franchise, we certainly expect that Deadpool will be coming to Disney+ in the United States… at some point.

For now, Deadpool can be streamed on Disney owned Hulu.
