Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is coming to Netflix in 2018 in both the United States and Canada as part of the Disney contract which will soon be coming to an end. It’ll be the biggest Marvel movie to ever drop on Netflix so if you’re looking for when Avengers: Infinity War will be on Netflix, look no further.
The past 10 years have brought us many Marvel movies that introduced us to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s built some of the most recognizable characters in the 21st century including the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Doctor Strange and many more. In case you haven’t heard, Thanos is out to cause trouble in the galaxy with his quest to collect all of the infinity stones and wipe away half the population.
The movie is regarded as the biggest superhero movie of all time and it’s no surprise as to why. It blew up the box office with some impressive statistics and has since now released on DVD which you can now rent on Netflix if you have their DVD subscription and are from America.

For every Disney movie that’s come to Netflix as part of the contract struck back in 2014, new movies have arrived roughly between eight and nine months after the initial theatre release. In which case, you can expect Avengers: Infinity War to be arriving on Netflix before the year is out. In the timeline, we’re currently expecting the US to be streaming the movie around November/December 2018.
Captain America: Civil War released around the same time in 2016 during April and arrived on Netflix on December 25th, 2016. We’re expecting a similar window of release once again and given the last big Marvel movie came to Netflix on Christmas day, we think we could see a repeat in 2018.
Netflix CA Release Date
Netflix Canada, unlike America, isn’t beholden to the same contract as the United States which is expiring. It does, however, receive the Marvel movies on roughly the same timeline as the US currently so you can expect a December 2018 release.
Netflix UK Release Date
The United Kingdom doesn’t have the same deals as above. Those movie rights belong to Sky who gets new Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel movie rights before the likes of Netflix. That’s not to say that they won’t receive it at all. In fact, Netflix UK typically gets all Marvel movies a few years down the line.
Will Part 2 of Infinity War be on Netflix?
Netflix Canada will likely be getting the second part of Infinity War but in the United States, the Disney deal will be up by the time it releases in cinemas. That’s why “Ant-Man and The Wasp” is scheduled to be the final Marvel movie added to Netflix. Instead, you can expect the second part to drop on Disney’s new streaming service expected to be up and running in 2019.
While you’re waiting, why not check out the other Marvel movies on Netflix or better yet, just the two previous Avengers movies that are streaming in some regions of Netflix.
