‘X-Men: First Class’ has been removed from Disney+ in the United States.
The removal came as a bit of a surprise since Disney+ does not announce which titles will be leaving every month like other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.
The movie is now available to stream on Starz in the United States.
The film is expected to return to Disney+ when contracts expire that were made before The Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox.
It’s expected that ‘X-Men: First Class’ will be eligible to stream on Disney+ beginning on January 01, 2024.
“X-Men: First Class” charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
The movie remains available on Disney+ outside the United States.
