I heard about that. Even Family Guy the Quest for Stuff poke fun of the merger.
I've just looked online, and it looks as though it is two years from date of cancellation, not last date used:
Fans of the Marvel Television series recently canceled by Netflix who hope to see the shows revived on Disney+ may be out of luck. Sources tell Variety that the deal for the original four Marvel sh…variety.com
It will all just depend on what the use of the word "appear" means... Can they film before this date and just not air publicly?
Iron Fist/Luke Cage/Heroes For Hire/Daughters of the Dragon would not be able to be used until 19/10/2020 (Iron Fist was cancelled on 12/10/18 but both Danny and Colleen were main characters in Luke Cage S2, therefore Danny, Colleen, Luke, Misty and Claire would not be available until 19/10/2020.
Daredevil would not be able to be used until 29/11/2020 - ruling out Matt, Foggy, Wilson Fisk and Dex until then.
The Punisher/Jessica Jones would not be able to be used until 18/02/2021 - ruling out Frank, Karen, Jessica and Trish until then, unless anyone else appears in Jessica Jones Season 3 whenever it airs
Means that we are already through 27% of the time until LC/IF could air, 22% of the time until DD could air and 11% of the time until TP/JJ could air.
Given the fact that JJS2 was picked up in January 2016, but didn't start to film until April 2017 there would be no reason why Disney/Hulu couldn't pick up the rights/actors now and then film when they have time as they couldn't air/film before the above dates anyway.
Marvel's Ghost Rider and Marvel's Helstrom to launch on Hulu in 2020.

Everything changed when Feige took over all creative control at Marvel, including Marvel TV. Look for these characters to start getting announced for Disney+ shows over the next couple years. As well as more of these characters added to MCU films after Phase 4.EXCLUSIVE: Hulu has opted not to proceed with Marvel’s Ghost Rider, its planned live-action series starring Gabriel Luna, I have learned.

Disney is executing on its previously announced swap of Fox Bonds for Disney Bonds.... No new debt raised, just a change in listing and liquidity (ability of the current bond holders to sell their bonds within the market). Over $14 Billion in debt due over the next 77 Years.
Seems like they are finalizing the sale of Endemol Shine Group. 2.2B price tag and offloading of 1.95B in tax. Disney owns half of Endemol Shine that it inherited from Fox.
I think the $1.95 Billion is in debt (therefore total value is $4.15B). I am sure Disney has Endemol Shine signed up with Hulu for long-term streaming rights as well, so this appears to be a great deal for the Mouse-House.
I know for a fact they don't have Endemol Shine signed up with Hulu because they typically are third party producer and their reality content doesn't fit US hulu's audience. Master Chef distribution rights are still with Fox Corp, Keeping Up with the Kards is with Universal, and their other shows are European format which don't fit the hulu binge model by having only 4-6 episodes for most reality shows.
Here’s what I did wrong on the studio network side, the reason why I had to go away. It all started with a joke. And not a very good one. There was a line in the Season 2 premiere. EZ [JD Pardo] and Coco [Richard Cabral] were getting off the bus at the school where the drugs were being processed. There was supposed to be a really gnarly playground out front. Filled with debris, dangerous looking swings, sharp objects, rusty jungle gym, etc. As they exited, Coco sees EZ’s distracted and says: Lighten up Boy Scout, and gesturing to the playground, says, We’re going to Disneyland. EZ replies: Yeah? Guess this is where Walt buried all the Jews he had killed. Coco comments: That’s dark man… And exits.
So when I was informed that the Walt, Jew killing line had to go, I agreed and changed it to…We’re going to Disneyland. And now EZ says, Yeah… if Mickey and Pluto were pedophiles.
Seth MacFarlane has great relationships with Disney. He is extremely happy with the way The Orville is being handled by Hulu and the way his others shows are goinf. Kurt Sutter created his own problems.
Plus Sanders has been harassing Disney for years.Well, we have people here on these forums who supposedly know better because they're Disney fans and not 70+ years old who also wrongly thought the Fox acquisition gave Disney a majority stake in the movie industry.
I guess if there is no buyer, Brazil will let Disney keep it as long as Disney announces the new Brazil Pavilion.Brazil is reassessing the Fox deal after Disney failed to find a buyer for the Fox Sports channels there.
Brazil's antitrust regulator said on Wednesday it will reassess Walt Disney Co's (DIS.N) $71 billion purchase of Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA.O) because the divestiture requested by the regulator as a condition for the merger of U.S. media companies has not happened yet.www.reuters.com
