For Marvel fans looking for the original 20th Century Studios Marvel film “X-Men” on Disney+ in the United States, unfortunately, the film has been removed. This is due to pre-existing contracts made before Disney purchased 20th Century Fox.
This film was originally released in 2000 and is about a group of mutants with extraordinary powers, wage a fight against both intolerance, and a fellow band of radical mutants intent on exterminating the human race. When Magneto kidnaps Marie, a young mutant, with the intention of using her powers to destroy humanity, the X-Men and Wolverine team up to save her and stop Magneto.
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 that are removed, will return to Disney and hopefully stay there. “X-Men” was added to Disney+ last summer and lasted about a year before it’s removal today.
It’s not yet clear which streaming service the film has been moved to, however “X-Men” is still available on Disney+ internationally.
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.
