Marvel and Netflix really are moving forward with their series. With the hype for Daredevil reaching maximum lately, Netflix has given us some more information regarding the next 4 shows. As reported, DAREDEVIL will be the first series of 4, that culminates in the DEFENDERS, a street level type of Avengers.
Next up, Kristyn Ritter will be playing Jessica Jones in AKA JESSICA JONES, which starts filming next month and will be releasing in 2015. That increases our Marvel content for the year and sounds awesome.
Luke Cage has been cast (Mike Colter) and will appear in AKA JESSICA JONES first, before his TV series starts. According to Netflix, “In this Marvel live-action series, a street-fighting ex-con battles crime in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen as the superhero Luke Cage. Coming soon.” This is great to hear, as it sounds like it’ll stick close to his origins and give us the Luke Cage we deserve!
Following Luke Cage will be IRON FIST. While we know a lot about Iron Fist from Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man TV show, his live action debut should definitely kick some literal ass. Netflix describes the show: “Marvel’s Iron Fist” follows superhero and martial arts master Danny Rand in the upcoming live-action series. Coming soon“
Lastly, the DEFENDERS has gotten a description on which we all know, “Marvel’s The Defenders” brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage in an epic superhero team-up in New York City.”
Netflix beginning to flesh these series out is exciting and shows that both Marvel and Netflix are sticking to their guns to see this through. Are these new definitions for beloved Marvel characters what you want to see on screen or did Netflix get it way off? You can guarantee we’ll update you with more information as it arrives.
