The Marvel universe is continuing to expand.

Netflix and Disney have announced that they are joining forces to develop four new live action series that will focus on four different superheroes from the Marvel universe. The “four series epic” will feature individual series for Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones, and will culminate in an Avengers-style team up tentatively titled The Defenders.

The individual series will begin rolling out in 2015 with each focusing on an individual character, and are expected to be a minimum of 13 episodes for each hero. The deal was announced on the Netflix website.

“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,” said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. “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.”

“Marvel’s movies, such as ‘Iron Man’ and Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’, are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.  ”With ‘House of Cards’ and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we’re thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude.”
