Ahead of this afternoon’s Disney earning call, Marvel and Netflix have announced that they’re teaming up to produce for original 13-episode series’ featuring the characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, that cumulate in a Defenders mini-series.
Disney already has a distribution deal with Netflix that will make them “the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies,” including Lucasfilm. (That deal starts in 2016, which means the 2014 ‘digital library’ hint is still open to interpretation.) Could this Marvel deal foreshadow something similar with Star Wars eventually? It’s early yet, but keep it in mind for the future.

Wow. I’ve actually heard of two of them.
(Yes. My geekery does not extend beyond comic movies.)
Paula, you’re one up on me. I’ve only heard of Daredevil.
I’m just happy this brings us closer to a possible Brother Voodoo series.
This is cool! Just so happens that Netflix is the only subscription service I pay for, so yay.
Hopefully it’ll be better than SHIELD — the episode I saw was really not very good.
I wonder what it means for us international fans. I bet we can’t suscribe to Netflix so here’s hoping those shows eventually end up on disc.
