It wasn't long ago that I was writing on this blog that I thought Daredevil would make for a great TV series. Now it seems I am going to get my wish - and then some! Marvel and Netflix have reached an agreement to present five 13-episode series featuring Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and The Defenders (which will combine all the characters). I could quibble about them using The Defenders for what is clearly a Heroes for Hire concept, but I don't care right now because I am so happy with the format that has been chosen. Having these as Netflix Original Series, they will be commercial free and not bound by the restrictions of network TV. Plus, we'll get the entire seasons at once! I have been impressed by House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, so I hope that Netflix will maintain the high standard that they have set for themselves. Now lets get Joel Edgerton cast as Matt Murdock!
