DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE & IRON FIST TV Shows On The Way!

We had already heard about Marvel's Netflix deal and knew that some new tv series were heading our way, but now they've been revealed and should make you guys very excited indeed. Luke Cage and Iron Fist have been characters that fans have wanted to see either on the big screen or small for years now, and a Jessica Jones show was already in the works but was though to have been shelved. The biggest news is that we'll be getting a Daredevil show. Marvel recently got the rights to Matt Murdock back and we figured we'd hear something about their plans for him over the next year or so, but many assumed it'd be a new movie project. Take a look at the press release and sound off in the usual place.



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 miniseries 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.

Orphix - 11/7/2013, 6:42 AM
So how is the defenders thing gonna work? They call it a 'reimagined' version. Is this the new name for Marvel Knights??

Or will Hulk, Submariner and Dr Strange show up???
neonhero - 11/7/2013, 6:42 AM
Jaw officially dropped!
jlabatman - 11/7/2013, 6:43 AM
wow, did not expect these characters in tv shows. Rather see Daredevil on the big screen. As far as Luke Cage and Iron Fist, would like to see them in one show as Heroes for Hire!
Viltrumite - 11/7/2013, 6:45 AM
This was really cool to wake up to. Hopefully we find out more before the new year.
magnusinthebox - 11/7/2013, 6:46 AM

JusticePourTous - 11/7/2013, 6:49 AM
But is it part of the MCU? That's the big question here.
MsDarkPhoenix - 11/7/2013, 6:49 AM
^my thoughts exactly

And YEEEEES!!!! FINALLY!!! SUPER [FRICK]ING EXCITED!!!! Screw Coulson and his stupid team
FantasticSpidey - 11/7/2013, 6:50 AM
I was just saying that these characters would be perfect to have their origins laid out in advance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Makes perfect sense. You expose these characters to the viewing public early and get them hooked on them now and AoS benefits from bringing the superhero action people have been wanting to see.
ezio619 - 11/7/2013, 6:51 AM
Netflix has been pretty big this year especially so its good that they are using that as their platform, man ,we gotta wait till 2015, well i will wait for them to make a really good show then rush a crappy one
ruadh - 11/7/2013, 6:51 AM
Yes! I've been hyping this the last few weeks and here it is.
Mothchild - 11/7/2013, 6:51 AM
Iron Fist is awesome!! The sergeant from Brooklyn Nine Nine would be a good cast for Luke Cage or that guy from Ironside.
ezio619 - 11/7/2013, 6:52 AM
Daredevil and iron fist is what got me really excited,i like jessica and Luke but those are my boys!!
Batmaniac - 11/7/2013, 6:52 AM
As long as the give Daredevil the right tone (and by that, I mean NOT the tone of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D), I'll be cool with this. In fact, if they give Daredevil the right tone, I'll be more than happy to watch the show.
Nomis - 11/7/2013, 6:52 AM
YES! YES! YES! YES YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES













MegatronLP9 - 11/7/2013, 6:53 AM
Hell Yes's!!!!
ezio619 - 11/7/2013, 6:53 AM
they would have said it was part of The Mcu in the press relase,i really hope it is
Mothchild - 11/7/2013, 6:54 AM
TV is going nuts for CB characters. Bring it!!
ezio619 - 11/7/2013, 6:54 AM
Batmaniac- i think they will,they said it will be gritty and netflix does have house of cards which is pretty much that tone from what i have heard
tadrob - 11/7/2013, 6:54 AM
You beat me by minutes. lol good catch man.
NoAssemblyReqd - 11/7/2013, 6:55 AM
Nice. This may take some of the pressure off MAoS. Heck, this could lead to some of the most awesome TV crossovers ever.
charlie2094 - 11/7/2013, 6:55 AM
Awesome!! Hope they do Iron Fist (and all of them) justice, and get to see Kun Lun...excited to see how these develop, don't want this to keep Daredevil to from being in a film though :/

It's gotta be in the MCU. There's no way it's not going to be. And even if it wasn't, Marvel will listen to it's fans and somehow incorporate it. All of these heroes don't need to be in Avengers 3. They can just stay in the Bronx and Hell's Kitchen.
