Marvel and Netflix pair up to bring Daredevil, Power Man, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones and unite them as The Defenders!
Big news has come once again to those looking forward to some new Marvel shows, as The Walt Disney Co. and Netflix have announced something exciting for fans of some particular New York-based Marvel Heroes who will not only be getting their own individual serialized programs, but eventually lead up to one big miniseries event!
Announced and reported by sites like Superherohype, it appears that Marvel TV will be developing four shows based on the heroes "Daredevil", "Iron Fist", "Power Man/ Luke Cage", and "Jessica Jones", each holding their own live-action television series that will run for about thirteen episodes each! The project, which will be produced by Marvel Television and ABC Television Studios, is expected to begin in 2015, and all individual character's series will converge into a separate team mini-series called "Marvel's The Defenders", which follows the same kind of formula as the films and heroes features in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where heroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor had their own movies and eventually teamed up in one mega-blockbuster hit film that was "Marvel's The Avengers"!
This is definitely big and awesome news, especially for fans of Marvel Knights, Daredevil, Power Man/ Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones/ Alias! After bringing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D into the fold and experimenting with the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the small screen, it isn't a surprise that Marvel Entertainment is taking this approach, and having recently reacquired the rights back to Daredevil, this will do nicely to bring all the heroes together, big and small screen combined! And who knows... The Avengers and The Defenders may actually meet someday! For more information, visit the source post at Superherohype!
