Audition information coming in 2014 for new super heroes.
In 2014, Disney, Marvel and Netflix are teaming up to create 4 new TV shows and a series that combines them, “The Defenders”. The new project was just announced and auditions should be taking place this year in 2014 for the Disney / Marvel venture. Netflix will be picking up the shows as part of their offering in 2015 and 2016.
Netflix has stepped into the arena of original content with their “House of Cards” series that stars Kevin Spacey. It seems that in the next few years they will be expanding on their original content with more new shows. Netflix has teamed up with Marvel and Disney for a new superhero show The Defenders and 4 other superhero shows that relate to the Defenders.
Disney Studios, Marvel comics and Netflix will team on four shows that will begin with 13 episodes. The four new shows are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. The 4 separate shows will then have a combined show or mini-series, “The Defenders”. This is close to what happened with the “Avengers” movie when individual projects, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and other superhero films combined into “The Avengers”. “the Avengers” and all the individual movies and franchises that fed into it made the franchise billions with record breaking box office takes. Now, the companies want to see that format go to the small screen in the form of series instead of films. This will definitely be a project to watch.
This is the first time something like this will be attempted for TV and Netflix streaming, on-demand format seems to be a great choice. Viewers will be able to see only the super heroes they want and of course, watch them all together in the “Defenders” series.
The folks at Netflix have commented on how thrilled they are to be working with Disney and Marvel. The shows are now in the early stages of casting and pre-production. They look as though they may be released sometime in 2015 and by 2016, Netflix hopes to become the subscription service to go to for Disney exclusive movies and TV shows from their various branches such as Walt Disney Studios, Disney Pixar and the recently acquired Lucasfilm.
Marvel.com announced that “Marvel TV is teaming up with Netflix for an unprecedented deal: four live-action TV series, plus a mini-series “programming event.”
The series will be produced by Marvel Television and ABC Television Studios and will run for at least 13 episodes. Taking place primarily in the gritty world of Hell’s Kitchen, the story will be a mini series that brings together the dream team of New York’s finest superheroes. The castings have not yet been announced but Disney and Marvel are taking applications for aspiring actors. This is a great chance for any actor that is looking for their big break. Do not miss out apply now!
So who will be cast for the roles of the new Disney / Marvel Superheroes?
Filming has not yet been scheduled but Disney and Marvel casting directors probably have their eyes and ears open for cast possibilities. Hopefully, soon more information will come out on who is auditioning for the 4 super hero roles as well as more information about the roles themselves from the casting call breakdowns. The shows will also be hiring many extras and featured extras when they begin filming.
About the characters:
Midtown High student Jessica Campbell was a friend to Peter Parker and happened to even be there when Peter was bitten by the spider. Soon thereafter, Jessica was riding in a car with her family when they collided with a military convoy carrying radioactive chemicals. Her family was killed and, after spending several months in a coma, she was placed in foster care and adopted by the Jones family. Jessica later discovered that her radiation exposure granted her super strength, limited invulnerability, and flight (which she never fully mastered during her superhero career).
Luke Cage is a flawed hero. Luke Cage possesses superhuman strength and stamina, and has extremely dense skin and muscle tissue which render him highly resistant to physical injury. Cage possesses these abilities as a result of his participation in dangerous, and highly controversial, experiments while in prison.
Matt Murdock gets blinded and his lack of sight causes his other senses to be better than most humans, actually, they are heightened to a super human level. He develops a radar sense and can sense everything around him better than most people who can see.
The Iron Fist is a martial arts master who was very well trained and now moved to New York.
So who would you like to see audition for the role of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, or Luke Cage?
40 thoughts on “Disney / Marvel TV show “The Defenders””
Hello, my name is Lauryn Brown, I am 15 years old, and I would love to take on the role of Jessica Jones. I am in love with acting and being able to portray different characters! I have loved Marvel and super heroes for as long as I can remember and it would be the best honor to be able to work on this project with you all. I actually just saw “Avengers: Age of Ultron” yesterday and was fascinated with the whole idea. Every time I’ve been asked about the type of movies/tv shows I would want to star in I always reply with the same answer, action!! And a Marvel experience is a perfect example of what I am looking for! My dream is for someone to see me on the screen and think “I wish I could do that.” Being able to call myself a “Defender” would be so exciting. I am very dedicated and I am ready for my acting career to take off. Even if Jessica Jones isn’t the role I am chosen for, I am willing to take on anything given to me! Please consider my request! Thank you

Hey my name is Nino and I’m 21 years old. I am looking for the role of Iron Fist which would just fit me. My father is Chinese and my mom is German so I can get the look of Danny Rand. I even went to China to practice Wushu at the Shichahai Beijing Sports Academy where Jet Li was trained, too. I love Comics and if I would have to compare myself to any hero it would be Iron Fist, I love martial arts and philosophy and I have experience in acting as well. I speak English, German and Chinese. It would be an awesome opportunity for me to make another dream come true. I’m about 6ft tall and weigh about 140 pounds. My hair is dark-brown but of course i would dye it if it need to be.

I forgot to add in my last audition application that I am very talented and can do anything I set my mind to! I would be great for this role. I can be very serious or very light and happy! I would be honored to play this part and work with such amazing actors and actresses. Please consider me for the part. Like I said in my other one, I am athletic and my arms are muscular. I could learn stunts easily. Thanks for reading this!

Hi Disney Channel producers, directors, or casting directors,
I saw this and thought it was a huge opportunity for me. I always wanted to play a superhero and especially in a disney movie and I am searching for auditions a long time! I don’t have a lot of experience but when I was younger I loved to give shorts plays or musicals to my family.
If I only got the opportunity to do auditions for the role of Jessica Jones I would be very happy and pleased that you would give me a chance.
Sadly I live in Holland but I would do everything (like flying to the US or do an online audition) to do an audition for this movie.
I really hope you contact me because this would be a chance of a life time!
I will not disappoint you and I will do everything for this audition!
I should be chosen to play a part in this because unlike many, I have a dream that I will do anything it takes to fulfill. I will never give up on that dream. One day it will be a reality. Whether it be tomorrow or ten years from now. I have been in many theatre/school/Shakespeare plays. I can sing, model, and act. I can be any character you want me to be. If you want me to be the innocent sweet character. I can be just that. If you want me to be the mean, sassy character, I will be. You want me to be the smart, witty character. No problem. I can look 12, and i can look 25. I can lose weight or gain it for any part. I can be anything. I will work as hard as it takes to be the best I can be. I will not disappoint you. It would be such a pleasure to work with you.

I’m really a huge superhero fan. I find this to be a huge opportunity. I don’t have much experience, but I’m confident I could do it. For a long time I’ve wanted to act, so this is important to me. I’d appreciate your consideration. Thank you!
I want to play the Iron fist. I am right around 6 ft with blue eyes. shoulder length hair, look like a surfer. love exercise, gymnastics, yoga, martial arts and language. I have been lost lately, and this is what I have been training for. but I think, I feel It was possibly the only on screen character I was ever actually meant to portray. I think I look a little like Danny Rand. I would love the opportunity to tryout. I would love to meet you as I have read all of your comics as a child and you have inspired me over the years. Please send me a link to which I can send you pictures. I have concluded that this is the way I need to realign my chi. lol I love you Stan Lee.
I also have an extensive background in acting since I was a child, including landing nearly every single lead role in various musicals throughout middle and highschool like the scarecrow in the wiz, anything goes, bye bye birdie, grease, and others. I also have some awards from county and state competitions. I am willing to apply myself to the fullest extent and I am a fast learner. I play music, sing, dance, do more than 7 martial arts each and every day including wing chun, tai chi, krav maga, karate, tai kwon do, jui jitsu, ninjitsu, and a few others, including free style. Please send me an email if you are interested. I have been waiting for this oppurtunity. I have around 30 other audition oppurtunities at this moment, but this is the only one I seek. I expect nothing and I appreciate everything.
I’m 21 years old, an aspiring actor. I can play age range from 18 and up. I would love to be apart of this television series. I’m a huge fan of Dare Devil and other heroes. I currently Study at HB studio in NYC. I would love to audition for the Role of Dare Devil! I will get it my all to be the best I can. I can currently working on my own web series coming out soon.

Hi, I’m Kaesiegh and I have been looking for a chance to audition for a Disney T.V show/film for a long time. I adore Disney as a whole and it would be my dream to work for the Disney channel.

Hi Disney Channel producers, directors, or casting directors!! My name is Olivia and I am 13 years old. This seems like a wonderful opportunity to possibly work on what seems to be yet another, Disney Channel masterpiece! To tell you a little about my appearance… I have dark brown hair and brown eyes. I’m 5 foot 1 and I weigh 100 pounds. I have light skin. Now to tell you a little about my personality and hobbies… My personality is pretty bubbly but “I can completely change that if I’m given the role.”-Tony (my acting teacher) I do take acting classes at a place called Stage Right. I’ve been doing this for almost 6 months. The best advice I’ve ever gotten as an actor is “To become a better actor, you must find a piece of yourself in the character you are playing.” I try to remember that when I’m acting. I love being able to create characters. I also do plays and musicals at a place called Apple Hill Playhouse. I was featured in “The Enchanted Sleeping Beauty” as a Good Pink Witch. I loved being in an environment like that. The scripts, costumes or wardrobe, meeting the rest of the cast, the hair and makeup, even doing an 8 hour rehearsal and waking up at 6 every morning for a week. I just loved doing what I was doing. I am familiar with the character Jessica Jones. Aside from acting, I also LOVE to sing. I sing in my school’s chorus group and church choir. I also have done a few solos at my church. Feel free to email me. Thank you for your time!
Hi, my name is Pasheun (Passion) Perry.

I am currently 12. I am 5. I have brown hair and brown-hazelish eyes. I live in clinton maryland (am willing to go to laurel, Annapolis, rockville, Baltimore, etc). I am in 7th grade.I have early experience in acting. I was in “Camp Rock 2:The Musical”, “Who’s Your Daddy” (play), “Law and Order: Fairy tale Edition, and more. I can be any age character. I can switch from one character to another. I am very funny and caring as i am told by my family and friends. I love all animals they are one of my priorities next to school and others. If any other questions please email my mommy the email provided above, and I look forward to hearing back from you. Have a nice day!
I would love to play any superhero and I look like a lot of them. I look the most like mother earth and I can memorize lines in a day.
I would love to play a superhero in a Disney TV show. The defenders sounds like such an awesome project and I would do anything to get the role of “Jessica Jones”. I would be perfect and I know the character from the comic books. I would make an amazing superhero and I even look like Jessica Jones. I love Marvel comics and I love Disney Channel and all the Disney movies. I think them making a TV series together is huge and an amazing opportunity for the people who get the auditions. I also like Netflix and we have a subscription to their service. I would love to watch Disney shows on Netflix and it would be even better if I got to be in the show.
I want to be an actress and am trying my hardest to become an actress. Being an actress in a Disney show would be a dream come true. I want to have a chance at this and I want to go to the casting call. I know if I auditioned, I would rock it! I would totally rock the part of Jessica Jones!
