The full list of Netflix’s new December 2018 additions hasn’t surfaced just yet, but on Monday, the streaming platform’s NX on Netflix Twitter account tweeted, “Oh, snap. Avengers: Infinity War is coming to @Netflix on December 25.” We can safely consider this official word.
As great as this news is, it’s also somewhat bittersweet considering it brings us that much closer to the end of Disney and Netflix’s partnership. New York Times reported in August that Ant-Man and the Wasp would be the last Marvel film to make its way over to Netflix.
But for the time being, Avengers: Infinity War will be easier to rewatch than ever before.
December 25 is almost exactly eight months after Avengers: Infinity War was released in theaters on April 27. Ant-Man and the Wasp was released on July 6, 2018 so in theory, that means the sequel to Ant-Man could conceivably hit Netflix around Friday, March 8 — which just so happens to be when Captain Marvel is scheduled for release in theaters.

So that just might be the last time we ever see a Disney-owned movie available to stream on Netflix.
What’s On Netflix reports that all Disney-owned films will leave Netflix exactly a year and a half after they hit the streaming platform, meaning that Infinity War will stick around until June 26, 2020.
But by then, Avengers 4 will probably undo Infinity War anyway, right?
Avengers: Infinity War will be available to stream on Netflix December 25, 2018.
