Marvel Brings Daredevil, Iron Fist & More to Netflix

dd 509

Press Release:

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 mini-series programming event.

Led by a series focused on “Daredevil,” 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 episodes series and a culminating Marvel’s “The Defenders” mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.

“This deal is unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel’s brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling. Netflix offers an incredible platform for the kind of rich storytelling that is Marvel’s specialty,” said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. “This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what’s sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure.”

“Marvel’s movies, such as ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,’ are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “With ‘House of Cards’ and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we’re thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude.”

This new original TV deal follows last year’s landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC TV and Disney Channel films and shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.

am_d2d

Artist Alex Maleev appears at Society of Illustrators on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:30pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

About Alex Maleev:
Eisner-Award-winning artist, Alex Maleev, is a comic book illustrator of Bulgarian descent best known for the Marvel Comics’ series Daredevil Vol. 2, collaborating with writer Brian Michael Bendis.

Maleev has a distinct drawing style of dark, grainy imagery, which gives his work the 16mm-camera look of old-fashioned documentary. Maleev studied under artist and teacher José Delbo.

In 2006, Maleev finished his run with Bendis in Daredevil and planned a collaboration with the writer on a new ongoing Spider-Woman series. Bendis and Maleev collaborated, once again, on the four-part “Halo: Uprising” miniseries from Marvel Comics. He first teamed with Bendis on Todd McFarlane’s “Sam and Twitch” series. In 2010, Alex returned to partner with Bendis, on “Scarlett” and The Spider-Woman Motion Comic.

Maleev also did art for the comic book The Crow: Dead Time, The Crow: Flesh & Blood, the New Avengers “Illuminati” special, the January 2007 issue of the New Avengers, issue #26 and the one shot, Civil War: The Confession.

In his comics, he sometimes references his Bulgarian origins. For example, in Aliens vs. Predator, alien eggs are stored in the cellar of a typical Bulgarian church. In Bulgaria, he is famous for Godan (Ãîäúí in Bulgarian) and Carthel of Dead, published in Riko magazine since 1991 and 1992, respectively. In 1994, he attended the Joe Kubert School.
