There’s been big news in regards to the long in the works quintet of Netflix series from Marvel Studios. Daredevil is about to hit the streaming site with all 13 episodes, and the titular roles for AKA: Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have been cast, but what don’t we know about these shows? How about brief plot synopsis and a vague release date for all the series including Iron Fist and The Defenders? With Agent Carter doing very well on ABC with fans and critics, it seems that Marvel may have the TV series code cracked, so it’s understandable that we should all get a little bit extra excited about what’s coming up with Daredevil. But what if I told you that we may get not just one, but two Marvel Netflix series this year?
As revealed in Cosmic Book News, let’s run it down: Daredevil.
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night. Coming April 10
A.K.A. Jessica Jones
Working as a private investigator in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen, a troubled ex-superhero’s past comes back to haunt her in the live-action series, “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” Coming 2015
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
“Marvel’s Iron Fist” follows superhero and martial arts master Danny Rand in the upcoming live-action series. Coming soon
“Marvel’s The Defenders” brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage in an epic superhero team-up in New York City. Coming soon
Yay! So we’re going to get Jessica Jones this year too. Obviously with both Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter cast as Jones and Cage respectively late last year, at least one of those shows was going to make it on to Netflix before too much longer, and as previously reported, Jessica Jones is slated to start shooting next month.
In the meantime, Luke Cage is still looking for a showrunner, and it’s uncertain as to what kind of work’s been done on Iron Fist yet, but if Netflix is aiming to get both Daredevil and Jessica Jones online by the end of the year, perhaps Cage and Fist will be more firmly scheduled for 2016, with The Defenders to follow up in 2017. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see to find out for certain.
Again, Daredevil bows on Netflix on April 10.
