Posted May 13, 2019 11:50:52Marvel is taking the leap into live-action TV, and the first two episodes of its upcoming Marvel TV series, Daredevil and Jessica Jones, are expected to debut on the streaming service.
But when they do, it’s not expected to be in the form of a Netflix-like format.
Instead, it will likely be a more traditional episodic format, with a series’ first episode focusing on a major character’s journey from a low-level mob boss to being a lead character in a major TV show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first of the new Marvel shows will be Daredevil and its two seasons will follow the main characters of the Netflix show, Matt Murdock and Luke Cage.
The two series are expected in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
The first of these two series will likely launch with Daredevil, which will debut in 2019, but Netflix may choose to launch the series as a standalone series or even a spinoff.
The series will be directed by Marco Ramirez, who is currently helming The Blacklist, which is also a Daredevil spinoff and is slated for release in 2020.
Netflix is expected to start streaming the new Daredevil series in early 2020.
Netflix will also stream the second of the series, Jessica Jones in 2021.
Both shows will likely premiere at the same time, with Daredevil in early 2019 and Jessica in 2020, respectively, according to THR.
Netflix’s Daredevil will air on Netflix and other Netflix-owned platforms, and Jessica will air as a Netflix exclusive.
The Netflix series will launch as a one-hour series on March 13, 2020.
The Defenders will air in 2019.
Netflix has previously teased that its Daredevil and Daredevil: Season 1 television series will debut around the same point as Marvel’s upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the first episode premiering sometime between May 13 and July 10, 2020, and then continuing throughout the 2020s.
The second episode will premiere on May 13-14, 2020 for the Netflix-Owned, Marvel-owned and Netflix-Streamed streaming services.
