Daredevil’s heading to Netflix in a new deal struck between Disney’s Marvel and Netflix. The incredible deal will mean four live-action adventure series based on four of Marvel’s popular characters will air exclusively on Netflix.
It’s anticipated that the series will premiere in 2015 with Netflix guaranteeing there will be at least four 13 episode series that feature Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. There will also be a Marvel’s The Defenders mini-series “that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”
“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.”
