Netflix’s Marvel Shows To Film In NYC
[ Technology]

Netflix, The Walt Disney Company, Marvel and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday that Netflix’s upcoming live-action Marvel shows will be filmed in New York, beginning this summer. The projects are expected to create at least three thousand jobs in the state, including up to 400 full time jobs.

The results will be sixty one-hour episodes focused on “Defenders” Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, as Netflix announced in November.








Marvel shares some quotes:

“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.

In December, Marvel announced that writer/director Drew Goddard (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Lost,” “Cloverfield,” “Cabin in the Woods,” “World War Z”) will serve as showrunner on the Daredevil series, which will be the first to premiere.
