Disney's Marvel and Netflix Join Forces to Develop Historic Four Series Epic plus a Mini-Series Event

Landmark Deal Brings Marvel’s Flawed Heroes of Hell’s Kitchen, led by "Daredevil," to the World’s Leading Internet TV Network in 2015

Burbank, Calif. - Nov 7, 2013—The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event.

Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York.  Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel's "The Defenders" mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.

"This deal is unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel's brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling. Netflix offers an incredible platform for the kind of rich storytelling that is Marvel’s specialty," said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. "This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what's sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure."

"Marvel’s movies, such as 'Iron Man' and 'Marvel’s The Avengers,' are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. "With 'House of Cards' and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we're thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude."

This new original TV deal follows last year's landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm.  Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC TV and Disney Channel films and shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.
So (in summation), in 2015 Marvel will launch 4 new television series' - "Daredevil", "Jessica Jones", "Iron Fist", and "Luke Cage" - that will lead into an Avengers-style team-up event miniseries, "The Defenders". Very Happy 

In the US these 5 ventures will all be distributed on the on-demand video streaming service Netflix, but will be produced in association with ABC (who produce Agents of S.H.I.E.l.D.). No word yet on how international distribution will be handled... Cool

I find it's tone to be schizophrenic - at times too hokey/jokey, and other times too grim (when directly following the goofier scenes) - but it seems to be getting more solid with each entry, and I'm enjoying it overall.

Jessica Jones! How very awesome. Finally, a super-powered female superhero.

That's if Marvel doesn't announce Captain Marvel as part of Phase 3. Although, it will really depend upon the release date of each of them.

Daredevil, Luke Cage/Power Man and Iron Fist are also great choices for TV series.

It pains me to say it, but SHIELD just doesn't capture my interest. I've worked my way through the first three or four episodes, but I have no desire to continue. I'm surprised at how bland all of the characters are given that it is a Whedon production, with the slight exception of Coulson although even his character is stagnating because of the "Tahitian resurrection" mystery.

The "by the book" male spy and the "sexy" female hacker are the worst two characters. Although "silent but deadly" female spy and "cute but socially unaware" lab geeks are also nothing more than caricatures.
