"Not content with ruling the big screen when it comes to comic book movies, Disney/Marvel has inked a rather epic deal with Netflix: four series with 13 episodes each, all leading up to a final team-up miniseries. The subjects of those series: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. And if that wasn’t a sweet enough deal for fans, the deal is also part of a broader arrangement between the two that grants Netflix exclusive, first-run subscription rights to Disney and Marvel films. Any number of comic book sound effects would be appropriate in response, but President of Marvel Entertainment
"Alan Fine has a slightly more measured response. “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 Fine. “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.”
"Once you get over the initial shock of it all, the reality settles in that this is a very, very awesome and groundbreaking deal. That Marvel continues to delve into its wealthy library of characters is great. Fans have long been clamoring for a movie about Luke Cage, but a series will gladly be accepted as well. The fact that both Iron Fist and Jessica Jones are also getting the Netflix treatment is an added bonus, giving fans even more Marvel characters that the everyday fan may not be too aware of. These three characters actually have quite a storied history in the Marvel universe, often playing an integral part in many storylines and team-ups."
