Marvel's Netflix projects are part of the Cinematic Universe
“There will be some interconnectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers…”, Joe Quesada Chief Creative Officer for Marvel Entertainment has confirmed that four projects Marvel have planned for Netflix, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will all take place within the same cinematic Universe as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.
In an interview with Fatman on Batman Quesada revealed that the four projects planned for a Netflix release will be based in the same world currently existing in the Marvel movies and while filming is taking place in New York, Quesada explained that it’s a different side of the city:
“We’re shooting in New York. That’s the fantastic thing about it, is that we’re shooting at home. We’re shooting where these characters belong. These stories take place in Hell’s Kitchen.”
What we can expect in terms of plot and villains has yet to be revealed but you can bet that Marvel will keeping that close to their chest for a while!
