    Here is some huge news to kick off your Thursday, Marvel has announced that they will be teaming up with Netflix to bring us new live-action TV shows. They are set to have at least 13 episodes each of DAREDEVIL, LUKE CAGE, JESSICA JONES, and IRON FIST. Keeping with their big screen plan, Marvel also announced that the shows will lead into THE DEFENDERS mini-series which is described as, “a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”

    Netflix and Marvel also said in the announcement that, “the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming,” and that it will "take Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York,” DAREDEVIL will be the first to premiere in 2015.

    This is awesome news as I know a lot of us wanted Marvel to use their lesser known heroes on the small screen. Being with Netflix also means that there won’t any limits on content. We could finally get that “R” level DAREDEVIL adaptation that so many of us want. The series sound like they are going to be closely connected and Marvel is going to take their time building towards THE DEFENDERS. This is exciting news and Marvel continues to be innovative and one step ahead of the rest of the industry.

    Here is the press release:

    BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 – The Walt Disney Co. (Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels,” sNYSE: 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 miniseries 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.

    I love Crews and he has the build for the part...

    Terry Crews Reiterates Desire To Play LUKE CAGE In Upcoming Marvel And Netflix Series

    We've heard from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Expendables 3 star Terry Crews about his interest in playing Luke Cage a number of times in the past, but now that Marvel and Netflix have given the character his own series, the actor makes it clear that he still wants the role...

    [​IMG]

    While it appears as if Luke Cage is no longer heading to the big screen, the fan-favourite character will soon be joining Daredevil on Netflix in his own 12-episode series on the online streaming service. Talking to IGN Movies, The Expendables 3 star reiterated his desire to still play the former Power Man if the opportunity arises. "I would love to do Luke Cage. I heard they finally green-lit that whole thing and I would love to do something like that." As for whether or not he had any other superhero roles in kind, he added: "I have so many. I have to go back to Luke Cage just because he was our Superman. There were no African-American superhethe equivalent to Superman for me. But I have plenty. Second to Luke Cage would probably be The Hulk. The Hulk was amazing." Crews is of course busy with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but if he were to find the time, there's no denying that he would be a good choice. roes out there. He was the first. He was the man. He was the one. The only example we could look at. I remember then seeing Falcon and a couple of others. Even in the D.C. Universe there was Cyborg. But Luke Cage was the original one where you said ‘This is me. This is my guy. This is the character.’ So he’s

    The netflix shows are live-action and tie into the movie universe. Fox owns the live-action film rights.

    That's DC. Get your comic publishers straight.

    We've been talking about this at work, it's a gift. If you don't take him as Luke Cage you're not paying attention, plus he wants the role.

    Also...can't wait to see Iron Fist.

    I have watched all but Defenders and all I can say is that they are just ok. The problem I have is things seem to drawn out and I lose interest around episode 7 or 8. Dare Devil was good and season 2 best of all of them. Luke Cage could have easily been two 6 episode season. Jones kind of sucked and I could not really get into it. Iron Fist was better that expected, but still not great and seemed too long.

    I only watched jessica Jones and iron fist. to me jessica Jones was awesome, not sure why you didn't like it. And iron fist, I only watched because of jessica henwick. I didn't care for the story beyond her story inside of it.

    I'm just thinking back to Punisher in Season 2 of DD... I'm not sure I want to watch 13 episodes of something that freaking dark and grizzly.
