It’s a great time to be a Marvel fan, as we have an ever-expanding slew of films to look forward to, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, to name just those with official release dates. On the TV side of things, Marvel already has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, and will soon be jumping into the streaming world as well, with a 52-episode deal over at Netflix.
The plan is to have four individual, 13-episode series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist), that will all lead into the eight-episode team-up miniseries, The Defenders. It was just announced that Marvel will be turning New York City into Hell’s Kitchen for the shows, with The Cabin in the Woods writer/director Drew Goddard working on Daredevil, and Dexter co-executive producer Melissa Rosenberg behind Jessica Jones.

If you're a Marvel fan, this is an exciting time. We've got Captain America: The Winter Solider about to hit theaters, Guardians of the Galaxy arriving this summer, and production about to begin in New York City on the first of five planned Netflix shows: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. In case you didn't know, Marvel and Netflix have teamed up to produce 52 one-hour episodes based on the Marvel characters, encompassing the four individual series (13 episodes each) and one four to eight-episode mini-series (dubbed The Defenders) that teams up all of the aforementioned characters and revolves around their exploits in Hell’s Kitchen.
