Netflix chief Ted Sarandos has confirmed that the upcoming Marvel TV shows could crossover with The Avengers.
Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage will culminate in a Defenders event series team-up.
“It has definitely been talked about. Daredevil is already shooting, since that’s out first. Eventually the series will run very close together. You can then have a separate season where the characters will cross over.”
Elaborating the company’s plan to follow in the footsteps of the Marvel feature films, Sarandos said:
“It was really based on the theatrical model of ‘The Avengers.’ Could you take another group of characters, The Defenders, and go about it the same way? Normally, they do the big movie and then eventually they get to the group origin story. Having 13 hours to tell each of these stories, you can go right to the origin story and the action at the same time,” he explained.
