Marvel rodará las nuevas series para Netflix en Nueva York




Netflix acaba de dar una rueda de prensa en Nueva York junto a los responsables de Disney-Marvel y el gobernador de Nueva York.
Como sabéis, en el 2013, se anuncio un acuerdo Marvel-Netflix para producir en exclusiva varias series de diferentes personajes de Marvel como Daredevil. Pues este nuevo acuerdo es para fijar como lugar de rodaje la ciudad de los rascacielos. Se esperan unos beneficios de 200M$ y trabajo fijo para 400 personas durante los próximos 3 años.  Marvel quiere que sus superheroes favoritos tengan sus hogar en Manhattan o Brooklyn.

De los detalles de las series algo se sabe. Daredevil será la primera en llegar, a mediados de 2015. El piloto lo va a rodar el director de "Cabin in the woods" Drew Goddard.  Luego vendrán superheroes como Luke Cage, Jessica Jonesy y Iron Fist.  Para rematar, se espera un evento en formato de mini serie al estilo The Avengers, pero esta vez con los "Defenders" reuniendo a varios superheroes.

Os dejo con la rueda de prensa original.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, The Walt Disney Company, Marvel and Netflix Inc. today announced that Marvel's landmark live-action television series, which will bring Marvel's "flawed heroes of Hell's Kitchen" characters to Netflix, the world's leading Internet TV network, will principally film in New York State. Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking series is Marvel's most ambitious foray yet into live-action television storytelling and represents the largest film or television production project commitment in New York State history.
Daredevil will be the first series from Marvel and Netflix to film in New York City
Filming is set to begin in the Summer 2014 and will create at least three thousand jobs in New York State including up to 400 full time jobs. The project will include nearly 60 one-hour episodes focused on the 4 Defenders characters: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
"New York is where the entertainment industry started, and this unprecedented commitment from Disney and Marvel is further evidence that we're bringing it back bigger and better than ever before," said Governor Cuomo. "And when the entertainment industry thrives, it fuels dozens of other industries and businesses. The competition for these projects is fierce and Disney could have chosen to film these shows anywhere, but they knew that shooting in New York means getting to work with the best in world. These shows bring New York's super heroes home where they belong--along with hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in new business."
"Since 2008 Disney has directly contributed almost half a billion dollars to New York's economy through television and film production, along with approximately 9,000 jobs for New Yorkers," said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. "The Governor's policies make this great state a more affordable and attractive location, opening the door for even greater economic investment and job creation for New Yorkers. Our Marvel series for Netflix will inject millions directly into the local economy and create hundreds of new jobs."
"We thank the Governor and the great state of New York for helping us create the ultimate backdrop to this epic series. Setting our production in New York City truly underscores the authenticity and excitement we plan to bring to The Defenders and their 'flawed heroes of Hell's Kitchen' stories," said Alan Fine, President, Marvel Entertainment.
