Marvel has released the news that their multiple Netflix series will be in the same cinematic universe as their films. This means that everything that happens, either on TV or at the movies is one connecting story. This, again, proves that Marvel is ahead of Warner Brothers and DC Comics, who have no connection between their TV properties and any of their films (to date). 

Joe Quesada broke this news on Kevin Smith’s "Fatman on Batman" podcast. 

There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.” 

Quesada also spoke about what kind of heroes these Netflix characters are going to be.

"Although these are superhero stories, this is different now. This is the street level…this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really, really seen in any of our Marvel movies, and probably more ground level, than I think you’ve seen. This is not like us doing Batman, Dark Knight or any of that stuff. This is very Marvel doing street level superheroes.” 

So just how far along are the Netflix adventures? 

The scripts are coming in. They are pretty fantastic. They’re really emotional. They’re very, very original. But at the same time, it is Daredevil. It is Matt Murdock. We will eventually, hopefully start casting really, really soon, but I’m very, very excited about it.” 

The next question is for you Maniacs. Will you binge watch these episodes or watch them one at a time?
