Well, Time http://time.com/3975704/marvel-netflix-6-months/ has published an Associated Press news item that ought to have all the so called Marvel fans in a tizzzy.

Jessica Jones will premiere before the end of 2015

Though the next Marvel film, Captain America: Civil War, won’t premiere until May, more Marvel heroes are coming to your streaming queue—and soon. Netflix announced at the Television Critics Association summer meeting on Tuesday that it will be rolling out a new Marvel superhero series every six months.

Marvel and Netflix teamed up to bring five separate shows to the streaming service, focusing on a group of comic book heroes called The Defenders, a street-level Avengers team. The first in the series, Daredevil, premiered in April. Jessica Jones will be the next superhero to get a Netflix treatment before the end of 2015, followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage, according to the Associated Press. After each has starred in their own series, all four will join forces for a Defenders show.

The announcement comes as anticipation for Jessica Jones, the first female superhero to headline her own Marvel project, grows. “I’ve been coming to Comic-Con for 12 years, and I think a lot of fans here have been eager to see more women onscreen for a long time,” Dawn Keiser, a 30-year-old Californian told TIME at San Diego Comic-Con in early July. “I was really happy to see the characters Karen and Claire become these heroes on Daredevil, but I really can’t wait for Jessica Jones to be the hero of her own show.”
Netflix Confirms Premiere of Marvel’s JESSICA JONES in Late 2015
Krysten Ritter, star of Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 2 (pictured above) as the titular superhero turned private investigator, Jessica Jones will also feature David Tennant as her archenemy Dr. Zebediah Killgrave (a.k.a. The Purple Man) and Mike Colter as the super-powered Luke Cage, Jones’ boyfriend and the eventual father of her child. (Cage will receive his own Netflix series next year.) Jessica Jones co-stars Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval.

If the tone of Daredevil is any indication, Jessica Jones and the other Marvel Netflix shows will be much darker and bloodier than the one audiences know from films like Iron Man and The Avengers.

All of which sounds like Disney want to get as much out of their Marvel properties as they can before comics and all the add-ons come crashing down.

 It means that you can now say with 100% certainty that there is NO such thing as "continuity" at Disney/Marvel.  As characters in comics changed to reflect the movie versions so they are starting to change to reflect the TV versions.

It's just a mess.  You know when you want to get someone to stop something? Say, eating Cadbury's creme eggs which they "love"?  You buy them creme egg after creme egg and it does not take long before there is no longer any love!!  This is what Disney-Marvel is doing.  Super hero after super hero, comic change after comic change -you will not be able to follow them because one day you'll just say: "Another Marvel super hero TV series....god I miss Happy Days!"

Everything I predicted would happen when Disney took over has happened. I really -REALLY- wish I had been wrong!
