Official Press Release

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.

Unless Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are involved I have no interest....


Ok, seriously, I hope this is good.

They should just make Power Man & Iron Fist one show which Jessica Jones could be a character in then have a Dr. Strange and Punisher show.  Punisher not on TV is a damn shame and Netflix would be a perfect place to do gritty shit you can't get away with on TV.

Punisher is the only thing that would excite me Phone Post

I think Strange needs to be a movie and not a show. He's so powerful that it'd be hard to show him taking on regular bs all the time. Phone Post

Who could play him? he gotta be good to do the blind thing haha
I think any of tthe three guys in revenge either the guy who plays jack Aiden or even Daniel would do well, Robb stark too if he's abut older in this one the guy who played cyclops would do a good job too Phone Post 3.0

Less than a week since the announcement of Marvel's partnership with Netflix to develop four new live-action television shows, rumors have already begun as to which creative teams might be involved. The Wrap reports that Joss Whedon's "Cabin in the Woods" collaborator Drew Goddard is currently in negotiations to write "Daredevil," the first of the Marvel series to air on Netflix. Goddard, who wrote the script for "World War Z," has also worked on a number of television projects including "Lost" and "Alias" as well as Whedon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel."

Goddard's love of Daredevil is well documented. While doing press for "World War Z" in 2012, the screenwriter spoke with Collider, where he expressed interest in writing the character and said a "seminal" work for him was Frank Miller's "Born Again."

"You're talking to a guy that had quotes from 'Daredevil' painted on his walls all growing up," Goddard told Collider in 2012. "When I was 18, I still had the blood-red door [with the quote] 'I have shown him a man without hope is a man without fear.' That's the sort of thing I love. If I can find the right project, I would love to do it. It's just a matter of finding the right project. Filmmaking is alchemy and it's all about finding what's right."

The fact that Goddard has frequently collaborated with Joss Whedon in the past -- so much so that he even cameoed in "Doctor Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog" as Evil Thomas Jefferson -- lends additional weight to the unconfirmed report that he's in the running to write a Marvel television series. After all, Whedon himself may be busy with Marvel movies, but "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is currently headed up by Jed Whedon (Joss' brother) and Maurisa Tancheroen, Jed's wife. It wouldn't be surprising if Whedon has a vision as to how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will extend to serialized programming, and Goddard being a part of that vision would certainly make sense.

The fact they they are producing this with ABC makes me fear its another Agents of Bore coming.

Plus its coming out in 2015, by that time New York has been vadalized twice. Once by aliens, once by Ultron the evil robot. I would be surprised anyone was left in that city. I would be doomsday prepping since 2011 if I lived there.
