Marvel Television and ReedPOP, producer of New York Comic Con (NYCC), are making NYCC the ultimate destination for Marvel Fans this year with an action-packed lineup of Panels. Fans will have the opportunity to witness the debut cast appearance of the upcoming Netflix Original Series Marvel’s Iron First and catch the world-premieres of new animated film Marvel’s Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell and an all-new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel’s most popular characters exclusively to the world’s leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a miniseries programming event.
Led by a series focused on Daredevil and followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four thirteen-episode series and a culminating Marvel’s The Defenders mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.
