Netflix and Marvel Partner In 4 Hero Series

Posted Nov 8, 2013

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.
