Disney Plus continues to be a bit of a mixed bag streaming service when compared to competitors Amazon Prime Video and especially Netflix.

Some find the lack of adult-geared Disney content to be a deal-breaker, while others lament Disney Plus‘s security issues, which now seem to have been mostly resolved after the introduction of two new functions.

However, no one can deny the vast array of top-quality TV series and movies that Disney Plus continues to release every month.

Among those anticipated titles are Avengers: Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Ant-Man and The Wasp, all of which have had their release date on Disney Plus pushed back slightly.

According to CBR, Infinity War will now launch on Disney Plus on June 26, one day later than its original release date. Ditto with Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will now release on Disney Plus on July 10.

Marvel‘s Ant-Man and the Wasp have a slightly longer delay to its Disney Plus release date; two weeks to be exact. Marvel‘s smallest heroes will now come to Disney Plus on August 14.

The only exception is The Incredible Hulk, which Disney and Marvel allegedly have no plans to bring to the streaming platform as its the film‘s distribution rights are owned by Universal.
