Disney announces 'Avengers: Endgame' is headed to streaming service, but when?
The record-breaking "Avengers: Endgame" is headed to home viewing.
The Marvel superhero epic will stream exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service starting Dec. 11, Walt Disney Corp. CEO Bob Iger announced Wednesday in a press release.
Given the three-hour "Endgame" screen time, this home release is especially big news for those having to make their way to theater toilets.
Disney+ is set to launch on Nov. 12 and will cost $6.99 a month, or $69.99 annually.
The service will include past Disney films, the Pixar library, Marvel movies, "Star Wars" films and the "Star Wars" TV show "The Mandalorian."
But the "Endgame" streaming news is so big, that business news website CNET reported that when Iger announced it during an earning meeting it "elicited a gasp from the crowd of investors, analysts and press."
Iger added that he is "thrilled with the record-breaking success" of "Endgame," according to the Disney release. The blockbuster crossed the $2 billion mark over its second weekend, in record time, to unseat "Titanic" as the second highest-grossing film ever worldwide.
