This comes just four months after the movie debuted on Blu-ray. The news comes from the Strong Black Lead Twitter account, which is one of Netflix’s official subsidiary accounts. They posted a gif of Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa from Black Panther along with the message that the movie is going to be made available for Netflix subscribers in just two weeks.

Disney, who owns Marvel Studios, has had a deal in place with Netflix for a couple of years to have their movie’s debut on the streaming service shortly after they make their way to Blu-ray/DVD.
However, with Disney launching their own streaming service next year, which is meant to compete directly with Netflix, the Mouse House will not be renewing their deal.
