Netflix 'Marvel Street Universe' Shows All Filmed Exclusively in New York City

Today The Wall Street Journal announced that Netflix/Disney and the state of New York has struck a deal to film all four Marvel Street shows (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist & Jessica Jones) exclusively in New York City. New York is essentially the center piece of the Marvel Universe anyway so this is great news. All four shows are said to take place within Hell's Kitchen. Disney CEO Bob Iger and Governor Andrew Cuomo are said to make the announcement today in Times Square.

This deal will bring out around $4 Million in tax incentives and 3,000 brand new jobs (400 full time jobs) to host the massive project.

Lastly, yesterday while speaking with IGN Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D head Jeph Loeb is heavily involved with the Netflix shows and not Feige himself.

Filming begins Summer 2014 on Daredevil

:: Press Release ::
"This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs totaling 52 one-hour episodes culminating in a four to eight episode mini-series programming event. Led by a series focused on “Daredevil,” followed by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking viewers deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a mini-series event in which the Marvel characters from the first four series team up as “The Defenders,” much like “The Avengers.”"
Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones will debut on Netflix in 2015
