You only have mere hours left to stream Marvel’s Doctor Strange on Netflix as it will soon be departing Netflix (in the United States) on November 30th for good. Here’s why it’s leaving and where it’ll be streaming next.
In 2016, Doctor Strange's origin story was released. Benedict Cumberbatch played the leading role. It’s about his journey to recover after a serious accident but do so by picking up new powers from monks.
Netflix titles change all the time, but this one falls under Disney. In 2016, the Disney contract was signed. This means that movies are available on Netflix for approximately 8 months from their theatrical release. Netflix holds these licenses for only one and a quarter years.
Moana, Rogue One and other future Disney films will be removed in the coming months.
Doctor Strange, of course, will return to Infinity War in his long and critically acclaimed appearance on Netflix USA. It is available for streaming starting December 25th.
Sadly, we don’t think it’ll find its way onto another streaming service immediately. We think that it will eventually appear on Disney+, which is due to launch in late 2019
Don't worry if you are a diehard fan of Doctor Strange. Netflix has an animated title that will keep you entertained, even though live-action is ending. Netflix acquired three animated Marvel movies on November 1, 2017. The animated Doctor Strange, which was released in 2007, tells a similar tale but in animated form. You can watch that right now on Netflix as that’s not expiring tomorrow.
Netflix in the UK only recently just picked up Doctor Strange and you’re good for the meantime. The show will eventually end, but it won't be for at least the next year.
