2015 is already looking like quite the year for geek movies, and now, thanks to a new deal between Marvel and Netflix, streaming TV will be hot on its trail.

Four thirteen-episode original live-action Netflix series, one each for Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, will be arriving from 2015, culminating in a joint The Defenders miniseries.

President of Marvel Entertainment, Alan Fine, had this to say about the news: "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. 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."

Just to reiterate, the Marvel/Netflix deal comes to well over fifty TV episodes confirmed before the word 'pilot' has even been uttered. The times, as the man said, are a'changing.
