Disney and Marvel have randomly removed many episodes of the Marvel Studios: Assembled series.

Over the past few years, Disney and Marvel have been pretty good friends, and Disney+ has become the official home for a number of MCU shows and movies. According to ScreenGeek, however, there may be something sinister going on behind the scenes. Suddenly, and for no apparent reason, six episodes off Marvel Studios: Overall has disappeared from Disney+.
For those readers who may not be Marvel superfans, Marvel Studios: Overall is a documentary series that gives viewers an in-depth look into the creation of MCU shows and movies. It’s been on Disney+ since 2021, but now that we’re approaching 2023, it looks like Disney has removed this Marvel offering from the streaming service — albeit partially.
The series itself is still on Disney’s high-profile streaming platform, but six of the episodes have been removed. The episodes focusing on Marvel’s WandaVision, Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, What if…?and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings are all gone… which is quite strange since almost all of these shows and movies are still very popular at the moment.
But before we all jump to conclusions and conspiracy theories, there may be an explanation for this. Disney+ released the six episodes mentioned earlier as a full-on series, as opposed to later episodes, which were released individually and spaced out over time. According to The Direct, it could be possible that Disney is just reorganizing its Marvel content. It can either turn all the episodes into one series and list them as such on the platform, or it can break them up and list them all individually.
It’s still just conjecture, but the removal of these episodes by Disney is most likely temporary. It’s in their best interest to make sure viewers can easily find all their Marvel content, as MCU fare is always a hot commodity on the streaming service.
Marvel Studios: Overall was released on Disney’s platform during what is being referred to as Marvel’s Phase 4. The series will release another “surprise” episode on December 28 that will delve into one of Phase 4’s later projects, but it has not yet been revealed exactly which film or show that it will be.
Phase 5 of the MCU starts next year, with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will hit theaters on February 17, 2023. It is believed that Disney will then add more Marvel Studios: Overall episodes to discuss it and the other movies and shows on Marvel’s 2023 schedule.
Meanwhile, Disney has plenty of other Marvel content to offer on its streaming service. Older movies like Iron man can be found here, so can everyone Avengers films, as well as most of the films with the various individual Avengers characters in them, such as Thor and Black Widow. If you are looking for a series, you can find WandaVision, She-Hulk, Lokiand What if…? there too, with the last two getting new seasons in 2023.
So although a few episodes off Marvel Studios: Overall has mysteriously disappeared at the moment, there is no need to fear. They will most likely be back soon, and Disney and Marvel fans still have plenty of content to keep them busy until then.
