Marvel Studios has done it again. With movies they were the first to create a united universe of characters that began with Iron Man, and continued with “The Incredible Hulk,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Thor,” culminating with the blockbuster, “The Avengers.”
Now they’re bringing the same approach of a unified universe to Netflix, with individual series based upon Luke Cage (also known as ‘Power Man), Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Daredevil, to culminate in a mini-series event, The Defenders.
Though based upon the news, I have to ask: Where’s Misty Knight?
Netflix has been looking for ways to differentiate itself from other networks, such as HBO and other cable networks for awhile now, though I never suspected that they would take such a bold approach.
