Marvel and Netflix are teaming up to produce four live action mini series of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage in 2015.

Each series will have at least 13 episodes and will then feature the 4 heroes teaming up to form The Defenders mini series on Netflix

Love this so much. Marvel won't be their letting popular heroes keep piling up dust. While they probably won't make it to the movies anytime soon it be a perfect compliment to the Avengers movies. Hopefully they will all be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I find this pretty awesome, and I like the fact that they are building up to an event arc. I'm curious to see how that goes.

Having the SHIELD tv show and this tie directly into the Avengers universe is brilliant marketing.

Awesome...just awesome.

And Im so glad it'll be on Netflix. Think that will fix some of the problems Agents of SHIELD has.

I wonder if each of the single series will be their origin story or what. And who they will get to play the four of them, you'd assume that some could make their way into movies at some point if they are popular.

It could definitely be a lot darker than Shield is too, being on Netflix. These shows have a lot of potential to do really well. Obviously Daredevil is the biggest name out of all of them but it will be really interesting to see how they tackle it. I, for one, cannot wait to see!

Luke Cage is pretty popular too I believe.

Hell, Nicolas Cage changed his name because he loved the character so much.

The average person has no idea who Iron Fist or Luke Cage is. They only heard of Daredevil because of the movie with Affleck

Sounds good. I do hate how Netflix dumps the whole season at once. I like it when the story builds a little. I also hate feeling like I am way behind on a show. I hope they cross characters into the movies and AoS and vice versa.

Yea...I think it's a smart way to get a reading on these characters by Marvel all of them would be risky move for a movie.

And it's really a barometer for things they have yet to do in the films. More mature stories (hopefully), Street level characters, and more directly a female & a black superhero.


If things go well, it'll be interesting what there next move would be. Do they combine Jessica Jones and Luke Cage into one show? Or do a Heroes for hire second season with him and Iron Fist? Or both?

There are plenty of other characters who fit naturally in with that, The Punisher and Moon Knight come to mind, but I think it'd be great if they got into Blade and some of the supernatural/horror stuff at some point....would fit in with what Netflix has done pretty well. And Doctor Strange will really open that can of worms in 2016/17 in the films.

It does take away some of the culture of being a fan I 'll agree.

Netflix has said it would do other distribution methods if the creators wanted them to in the past. I guess I'd be ok with 3 chapters a week and then four the last week. Contains it to a month....release it on Fridays so busy people have the weekend then you get a week for discussion and stuff.

Yea it's been rough.....though I will say this weeks episode actually wasn't bad....first time I could say that all season.

Here's to hoping that the locked in commitment of a 13 episode season and openness of Netflix draws in some quality talent for these.

I doubt there will be more than one season for each character. Since these will be 13 episode "mini-series," they can go after some top notch talent for the leads, knowing that filming will last probably as long as a regular movie, and there will be no further commitment, other than potential future movies.

Luke Evans for Daredevil

From what I've seen the Defenders is the only thing that is a mini series, everything else is a first series order and they'll go from there.
