This will give Marvel Studios the ability to further use the characters: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher and Iron Fist throughout more projects.
For now, the next Marvel series coming to Disney+ in the UK and other countries is Moon Knight on March 30.
Edit: 18 hours after publishing this article. Now the precise date has been revealed for more countries. The Marvel shows are coming to the UK, US, Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on March 16. Quite a limited number of countries though.
