It’s the beginning of a brand new month and unfortunately, this means that Disney is forced to remove some titles from Disney+ in the United States due to pre-existing contracts made before the Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox.
Today, the Marvel Legacy film “Fantastic Four” from 2005 was removed from Disney+ in the US and will now be available to watch on Peacock.
During a space voyage, four scientists are altered by cosmic rays: Reed Richards gains the ability to stretch his body; Sue Storm can become invisible; Johnny Storm controls fire; and Ben Grimm is turned into a super-strong … thing. Together, these “Fantastic Four” must now thwart the evil plans of Dr. Doom and save the world from certain destruction.
Expect this removal to be temporary, as eventually, once the pre-existing contracts that were made before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox have expired, titles removed like “Fantastic Four” should stay on Disney+.
While Disney doesn’t remove too many titles each month, unfortunately, Disney+ doesn’t advertise these removals in advance like other streaming services like Netflix or Hulu.
“Fantastic Four” is still available on Disney+ in other countries.
