Marvel Expands Netflix Presence
Marvel, who already has a few of its shows on insta-stream including Iron Man Armored Adventures and various volumes of Spectacular Spider-man, have announced plans to expand their presence on the service throughout the year.
Starting tomorrow, April 29th, with the release of :
- The Incredible Hulk (1996-97)
- Spider-Man Unlimited (1999-2001)
- Iron Man: Extremis — Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
- Astonishing X-Men: Gifted Â — Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
- Spider-Woman: Agent of the S.W.O.R.D. — Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
- Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes (2006)
- Silver Surfer (1998)
- Black Panther — Marvel Knights Animation (2010)
- Iron Man: Armored Adventures Season 1 (2009)
Which is a fine mixture of their older cartoons and newer projects, but things get more exciting during the summer as classic hits including the Fox Spider-man series hit the service. A show that hasn’t really been out in the open in years as Marvel has yet to release DVD box sets of the series.
- Marvel Action Hour: Iron Man (1994-96)
- The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Season 1 (2010)
- X-Men Evolution (2000-3)
- X-Men (1992-7)
- Spider-Man (1994-‘98)
- Spider-Man (1967-‘68)
- Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (1981)
- Spider-Man (1981-‘82)
In addition to the classic Fox Spider-man series, we also get Spider-man and his Amazing Friends and the original Spider-man cartoon with the bad-ass theme song. And its nice to see that Marvel will be including its current series, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on the service as well!
Finally, Marvel digs into the way back machine to produce these classic series during the fall:
- Iron Man (1966)
- Thor (1966)
- Captain America (1966)
- Hulk (1966)
- Sub-Mariner (1966)
Should be a treat for fans new and old.
DC currently offers up select DTV for instant-stream, but one must wonder when will they begin to offer full seasons of their hit shows?
