four separate series leading into a miniseries event for all four titled... The Defenders?
Cut to the end of the first episode of Daredevil, where Stephen Strange is waiting at Matt Murdock's desk.
This is unspeakably cool! And with none of the added pressures of "ratings" and other such nonsense. The best part is, these can all be completely different kinds of shows. Jessica Jones goes and does the Alias thing in a detective setting, while Iron Fist's series focuses on martial arts in K'un-lun. Great stuff!
"Playing guitars. It's hard to sing while playing...guitars."
