    Default Marvel can’t reuse their Netflix characters until at least 2020

    When Marvel’s Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and then Daredevil were cancelled recently by Netflix, it left a lot of fans upset. Well, mostly Daredevil fans as that show’s third season wasn’t just critically praised but had actually been one of the most popular shows on the streaming service. Of course, the cancellations made complete sense as Marvel owner Disney is launching its own streaming service called Disney+ next year, and it would be silly for Netflix to keep producing shows for its soon-to-be biggest rival.
    As Marvel hinted strongly in its various press releases about the cancellations though, the characters would return. While they may not be a good fit for the family-friendly Disney+ due to their mature content, the shows could easily slip onto Disney-owned Hulu. Or maybe the characters can finally also make the transition to the big screen alongside the Avengers. Except none of that is going to be happening for a while.
    According to a report from Variety, when Marvel and Netflix signed their original deal in 2013 for the latter to make five new superhero shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and then the team-up miniseries The Defenders), that contract contained ” a clause that prevents the characters from appearing in any non-Netflix series or film for at least two years after cancellation.” In this case, the characters from the three recently cancelled shows would only be eligible to appear anywhere again in October 2020 for the earliest.

    I found a site which is similar to Netflix. I want to ask is this site safe for watching movies as my Netflix account is not working from the last few weeks.
