Marvel teams up with Netflix for four new shows and a crossover miniseries

Goddamn,  Marvel is so hot right now.  As if the house of ideas needs to prove once again why a) it's a cash cow of gigantic proportions and b) its cinematic universe is becoming more like its comic counterpart, they decide to hit us with this news. Disney, Marvel and Netflix have struck up a deal to produce four series based on superheroes as well as a crossover miniseries. Holy hell.

Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil and Jessica Jones will each get a 13 episode series. Thus is confirmed before even a pilot has been made. Not only that but there will also be a Defenders miniseries to tie each series together. Talk about ambitious.

Think of the crazy potential this has for future movies and Agents of Shield. I'm salivating.
