Marvel and Netflix team up to bring us the future of action filled Television 0
Marvel continues their strong push to bring action to our viewing pleasure! Not only in the theatres or on their network or even on the major broadcasting networks. They are bringing it to Netflix which we consider the future of amazing programming and the future of Television!
Bob Iger the chairman and chief executive of The Walt Disney Company announced that Marvel and Netflix are launching multiple TV series.
The deal between Netflix and Disney calls for a minimum of 13 episodes each for TV shows based on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron First, followed by all four characters teaming up in The Defenders miniseries. While more seasons of the respective series are possible, Iger also acknowledged, "It’s quite possible that they could become feature films," according to Variety. There are obviously plenty of different options - everything from solo films, to having any of them join the Avengers (all have been on the team at one point), or having Cage and Iron First team up for a Heroes for Hire movie. Obviously, Marvel is doing some unprecedented things here in terms of universe building.
