Walt Disney Co’s Marvel superhero studio will produce four new adult-oriented animated series for the Hulu streaming service, Hulu said on Monday. Disney is reserving new programming for its own online platforms as the company works to transform into digital entertainment.
As the top writer at Marvel Comics and later as its publisher, Lee was widely considered the architect of the contemporary comic book.

Marvel? Meh. The small screen belongs to a new breed of old favorites. From Superman and Wonder Woman to The Flash, more than 10,000 characters populate the universe of DC Entertainment.

Netflix will offer at least four, 13-episode series over “multiple years” with a miniseries, The Defenders, that it says “reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”
