In news guaranteed to fill certain Tosche Station staff members with glee, Marvel has announced that Netflix will air four–that’s right, four–new live-action television shows based on Marvel superheroes Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil. Not only that, there will be a miniseries event based on the Defenders. These shows will be set in the Marvel cinematic universe, which also includes the ABC show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Each series will contain 13 episodes and will begin airing in 2015.
Even a comic illiterate person like myself can understand that this is a huge deal. And, as a person hugely invested in Star Wars (which is owned by the same parent company as Marvel), it makes me wonder what is planned for future projects set in the GFFA.
