That’s right folks Avengers: Age of Ultron will be leaving Netflix UK very soon! Make sure you get one last watch out of the film before it leaves tomorrow! We have an idea on when and where you’ll be able to stream Avengers: Age of Ultron next just in case you don’t get one last watch.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is an American superhero film based on the characters of the same name in Marvel Comics. The film is the 11th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the fifth highest grossing film of the franchise with $1.4 billion at the box office worldwide.
A few years after the events of Avengers Assemble, the Superhero team have been busy cleaning up Hydra’s mess. After taking down a Hydra fortress and recovering Loki’s scepter the team head back to Avengers Tower. Discovering that artificial intelligence resides inside the scepter Tony Stark and Bruce Banner secretly experiment with it to create Tony’s “Ultron” defense program. The awakening of Ultron is a success but the sentient A.I concludes that to save Earth, he must rid it of humanity. The Avengers must take the fight to Ultron if they are to save the Earth from Ultron’s wrath.
When is Avengers: Age of Ultron scheduled to leave Netflix UK?
Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to leave Netflix on the 25th of June. This may surprise many as the film has only been available to stream on Netflix for the past six months. Netflix UK would have only signed a six-month contract to license the film hence why it’s leaving.
Are any other Marvel films scheduled to leave Netflix?
At the time of writing only Avengers: Age of Ultron is scheduled to leave Netflix UK.
The next Marvel Cinematic Universe titles to leave Netflix UK will likely be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Why is Avengers: Age of Ultron scheduled to leave Netflix?
As we briefly touched upon above, Netflix UK would have only licensed Avengers: Age of Ultron on a short term basis. Considering it arrived just after Christmas 2018 this may have been to make up for the fact that the US Netflix had received Infinity War over that period.
Will Avengers: Age of Ultron be available to stream elsewhere?
Naturally, the title will be available to stream on another network once it has left Netflix. The three likeliest destinations are Amazon Prime, Sky and DisneyLife. Out of the three Disney Life is the most likely for obvious reasons. But if we do consider the amount of superhero content on Sky there’s reason to believe Age of Ultron could land there instead.
