Disney's Marvel and Netflix Join Forces to Develop Historic Four Series Epic plus a Mini-Series Event Based on Renowned Marvel Characters
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.

Weird that they are having Iron Fist and Luke Cage as separate shows rather than together as Heroes for Hire. I really hope they just pulls stuff directly from Fraction and Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist run.

Daredevil blatantly needs to be a Law & Order-style show with added superhero stuff, and Mentalist/Castle-style humour.

I guess Jessica Jones will be the show that ABC rejected a few years back.

Yeah they could have combined Fist and Cage for H4H and made a Punisher show instead.

Exactly what I was thinking, although I wouldn't be surprised if they are deliberately shying away from Punisher due to the violence.

Can't wait to see the casting. Jensen Ackles as Matt Murdock, obv.

Maybe the Cage series comes first and that leads into a Heroes for Hire series that introduces Fist. Those two teaming could be the start of The Defenders also.

Hopefully by not being on cable TV they won't be so restricted by how violent the action scenes can be.

Netflix is such a game changer. Marathon sessions of TV. :wub:

I can get on board with this provided they are better than Agents of Shield, which has been a huge dissapointment.

ABC developing another Marvel Show:-

He then went on to say that ABC has another Marvel series in development, and though he wouldn't say what character or series it is based on, we think it might be the Agent Carter TV series talked about a few months ago.


Netflix shows could get films:-

Iger then added that should their respective series be well received on the Netflix platform, however, feature films for the individual characters aren't out of the question.
