The Stan Lee and Reg E. Cathey memorials have been restored to their Marvel shows on Disney Plus.
Marvel’s TV series including DaredevilJessica JonesLuke CageIron FistDefenders and The Punisher moved away from their original home of Netflix, to their new streaming home of Disney Plus. Since then, viewers have had a chance to see some of the minor changes that resulted from switching to a different service.
A particular change in both The Punisher and Luke Cage caught some people off guard, especially since there seemed to be no justifiable reason why this change had occurred. The season 2 finale of The Punisher originally featured a title card that reads, “In Loving Memory of Stan Lee,” while a title card originally featured in the Season 2 finale of Luke Cage reads: “In Memoriam. Reg E. Cathey. Ahead. Both of these dedications were removed for an unknown reason, but have since been restored to Disney Plus.
Compared to the apparent and somewhat humorous changes made to Marvel’s Netflix shows since their move to Disney Plus, the removal of the dedications to Stan Lee and Reg E. Cathey was pretty bizarre, with Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker criticizing the decision. Fortunately, it has been restored for the respective series and viewers to honor their memory.
Here is the official synopsis of The Punisher season 2:
Former sailor turned vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) leads a quiet life on the road until he is suddenly implicated in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding him and those who seek the information she holds, Castle brings a new target to his back as new and old enemies force him to consider whether he should accept his fate and embrace a life as “The Punisher”. .”
