Marvel will shoot Netflix series in New York

Locations mapped out for Hell’s Kitchen-based stories

Marvel has announced plans to shoot its four upcoming Netflix series in New York, with all four to be based around Hell’s Kitchen.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are all set to receive their own shows, and all will be exclusively shot in NYC, with their respective stories due to intersect along the way.

The announcement represents the biggest production commitment in New York state history, with each series comprising 13 episodes each, to be followed by a single mini-series.

That series will see all four characters team up, and has tentatively been titled The Defenders, Marvel’s TV answer to its big-screen Avengers franchise. All in all, the five series will rack up 60 episodes in total.

Filming is set to kick off this summer, with Drew Goddard’s Daredevil series expected to be first out of the gate in 2015…

      I'm intrigued.... Surely it's gotta be better than SHIELD. I was so looking forward to that but ended up hating the casting. Other than Coulson, I really couldn't care about the characters. Especially Fitz - Simmons. Hopefully DD will get a decent treatment.
