However a Disney spokesperson also told the Times that as of now there are "no current plans" to also take the Marvel-themed shows that air on Netflix, including Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Iron Fist, and The Defenders, but "no current plans" speaks for itself.

New content will be created for Disney's streaming service for Star Wars, Marvel, and live-action versions of animated features such as Lady and the Tramp and The Sword in the Stone.

In a recent New York Times article, we are introduced to Ricky Strauss, who has been placed in charge of the streaming service, specifically its content.
