Ratings may be on the down swing for Agents of SHIELD, but that isn't stopping Netflix from making a major, comic book-related move.

The company announced a deal today with Walt Disney that will result in four serialized, live-action programs based on famous Marvel characters, all of which will lead into a special mini series event.
