We start with Disney Plus, which will try to captivate all its subscribers with content that is relevant to the platform. On April 2, 2012, Treasure Buddies will arrive.

If Amazon is looking to compete among the biggest, it will also need to add content to its already extensive catalog. Therefore, one of the most interesting will be Without Remorse, which will appear on the service on April 30. This action film, directed by Stefano Sollima, will feature the starring role of the charismatic Michael B. Jordan.
From GQ Mexico they pose it as a "spy thriller", where the aforementioned actor will be a government agent on a dangerous mission. Precisely, an elite Navy SEAL discovers that there is an international conspiracy, which is why it must be deactivated, to avoid an unprecedented warlike conflict.
Finally, the season finale of Invincible will also be available on April 30. This new animated series for adults has one-hour episodes and is the brainchild of Robert Kirkman, author of The Walking Dead. Basically, it presents a world of teenage superheroes with different family conflicts.
This production has the voices of really prestigious actors and artists. Among them are Steven Yeun, JK Simmons, Sandra Oh, Mark Hamill, Seth Rogen, Gillian Jacobs, Walton Goggins, Jason Mantzoukas, Andrew Rannells, Zazie Beetz, Mae Whitman, and Chris Diamantopoulos, among others.
Of course, Netflix will also add many productions to its catalog. One of them is Concrete Cowboy, which will arrive on April 2. This new film, directed by Ricky Staub and starring Elba and Caleb McLaughlin, is based on the novel Ghetto Cowboy, written by G. Neri. Basically, it follows the life of Cole, a 15-year-old boy who, in a western setting, is sent to live with his missing father, who is an urban cowboy.
In the same way, Run on will land with its first season on April 10. This Korean production has the presence of Yim Si-wan and Shin Sae-kyeong, which belongs to the genre of romantic comedy. In its first 16 episodes, we will learn the story of an athlete who decides to move away from his predetermined life to listen to his heart, who is in love with a movie translator.
Netflix also gives space to recent productions. In this case, we are talking about Love and Monsters, which will arrive on April 14. This 2020 film, which was very well criticized by specialists, almost could not step in theaters due to the pandemic. Starring Dylan O'Brien and directed by Michael Matthews, this is a monster adventure film that follows a young man who survived an apocalypse and decides to find his girlfriend.
There will also be space for anime, one of Netflix's bets. According to IGN, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba will arrive on April 1, 2021 with Latin dubbing. This is a really popular series, which is about a monster hunter. In addition, it is expected that in the future the continuation will also arrive, in film format.

We are talking about Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, which will appear with its first 3 seasons, which will allow us to discover what happened in this story, through the arcs of Phantom Blood to that of Diamond is Unbreakable.
Finally, following this same line, we cannot fail to mention the first season of the Japanese series The Way of the Househusband. This production will also arrive in April, being an adaptation of a successful manga, based on short stories starring Tatsu the Immortal, a former Japanese mafia man who, after an accident, retires and becomes a householder.
