Marvel Netflix

Leading the way in bringing television onto the web with high-speed and quality streaming video, Netflix hosted several live-action series behind the creative vision of Marvel Television in bringing some of its most iconic crime-fighting comic book heroes to life. The shows generated cult-like fandom all over the globe but was consequently cancelled in 2018 and 2019 due to Disney's intentions to create their own streaming service with the Marvel intellectual properties (comic book characters) that they now own. Below are the main characters that were featured in the Netflix + Marvel partnership while it lasted.

The Defenders

"I tried being a one-man army, and it failed. But this... This feels like something else is at work here. The four of us show up to fight a criminal organization at the same moment? How obvious does it have to be? This... This cannot be an accident."
Danny Rand (The Defenders Series)

Marvel's The Defenders is miniseries that combined all of the Netflix solo series characters, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, into one epic New York City superhero mash. The villain is once again The Hand at a higher scale and Elektra is their trump card. Matt Murdock is torn between defeating the love of his life and saving her from the path of no return. It's a brief but exciting dream scenario to see our favorite Netflix superheroes together in one setting.
