Over-the-top Superheroes is the aim of LOVEFiLM after inking a content deal with Disney UK and Ireland to bring Marvel animated TV series to its instant streaming service.
The Amazon subsidiary adds that under the terms of the deal, members will be able to stream hundreds of iconic episodes featuring many of Marvel’s most famous characters such as Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Silver Surfer.

Commented Jim Buckle, managing director at LOVEFiLM: “We already have a fantastic range of animated TV content on offer for our customers and it is great to see it expand with Marvel animation as a result of this new deal with Disney. It is an exciting development as many of our members will have grown up watching Marvel classics and can now catch up whenever they choose. The collection will also appeal to new fans.”

The Marvel deal is the third content agreement in two weeks to be announced by LOVEFiLM. It builds on the already extensive and unique collection of animated content available to stream, including titles from other market leaders such as Aardman, eOne and DHX Media.
