Marvel’s Netflix ‘Defenders’: Daredevil, Luke Cage and More “Could Become Feature Films”

We’re still reeling from Marvel’s bombshell announcement of four new Netflix original series for ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Jessica Jones,’ ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘Luke Cage,’ eventually forming their own miniseries ‘The Defenders,’ but questions will continue to pour in over the long wait until 2015. For instance, does Disney believe the heroes could still lead to their own films? What about the proposed ‘Agent Carter‘ series?

Admittedly with plenty on his plate between Marvel’s Netflix announcement and the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ release date, Disney CEO Bob Iger fielded multiple questions about the future of Marvel’s Netflix ventures, particularly why the streaming service had been chosen over any of Disney’s already-owned networks. “When we looked forward, we saw there were only so many Marvel shows we could fit on [our] platforms … It happens to be great for Netflix. They’re looking to make more original programming,”

Of course, while Jessica Jones had been discussed for TV years prior, and both Luke Cage and Iron Fist were speculated to be ripe for the small-screen treatment, some Marvel fans found themselves disappointed more well-known characters like Daredevil won’t end up on the silver screen again, following 2003′s divisive Ben Affleck rendition. Fear not! Iger was willing to offer that “It’s quite possible that they could become feature films,” should they prove more popular on Netflix than further seasons could satisfy.

As for ‘Agent Carter,’ a proposed TV series rendition of the Hayley Atwell-starring short of the same name, Iger confirmed that Marvel and ABC have begun development of a second series to follow ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,‘ but stopped short of confirming it to follow ‘Captain America”s best gal.

Well, what say you? Are you still in shock that Marvel and Netflix will bring Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones to the small screen? What other characters would you like to see brought to life in live-action Marvel?
