Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen
Looks like there's a deal with Netflix to bring 4 series of at least 13 episodes for multiple years plus a mini-series, and an exclusivity deal for Disney's films starting 2016.
The companies call this an “unprecedented deal” and “Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.” Disney will provide Neflix with live action series and a miniseries featuring Marvel characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. Netflix will offer at least four, 13-episode series over “multiple years” with a miniseries, The Defenders, that they say “reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.” The arrangement grew out of the deal that will give Netflix exclusive rights to Disney films in the premium TV window beginning in 2016. It is “unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel’s brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling,” says Marvel Entertainment President Alan Fine. And Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos calls Marvel “a known and loved brand that travels.” Deadline broke the news last month that Marvel was shopping the package with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America seen as potential candidates.
And their call for war on poverty is a smokescreen we don't need, cos the only war worth fighting for is a war on their pure greed. : Acid Country - Paul Heaton
