Disney+ may be launching this year, however, some folks in the Netherlands are getting a free trial of the service, and some classic Marvel TV series will be featured on the service.
Now, we should note things in Europe could be vastly different than what is offered in the U.S. but since Disney owns television rights to most Marvel properties it’s a safe bet they’ll be featured here as well.
Thanks to GJ Kooijman (a reader of The DisInsider). He is currently trying out the service and has revealed via Twitter that 90’s animated series such as X-Men: The Animated Series, Spider-Man, and more are featured.
