Netflix and Marvel Partner In 4 Hero Series
Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, are four Marvel characters that will be getting their own TV shows on Netflix. The programs are part of a live-action “four series epic” and a “miniseries event” based on the four Marvel characters. Each of the characters will star in a separate thirteen-episode series. The story-lines will converge into a mini-series called “The Defenders” just like the 2012 blockbuster “The Avengers.” Last year, Netflix signed an exclusive deal with Disney for subscription TV rights of their live-action and animated films starting in 2016.
