Marvel fans are not only excited about the launch of new films and series produced by Marvel Studios and Disney+. Some of them are nervous about the disconnection of the story in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) franchise with several non-Disney+ TV series.
There are quite a number of TV series whose stories are not considered by Marvel Studios. All of them were produced prior to the launch of the Disney+ platform. Starting from Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, to franchises on Netflix: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, to the Defenders.

Hugh Jackman Shows off Wolverine’s Claws and Portraits with Marvel Studios Boss, Fans Put Hope
