All you die-hard Marvel fans out there might want to consider getting a Netflix subscription, as Marvel has just announced that they'll be airing four new live-action Marvel superhero TV shows in 2015.
The shows will be based on characters Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Daredevil. The four series will be a minimum of 13-episodes long each, and be
