On Wednesday (2-26-14) we got major news about the Marvel / Netflix partnership that'll bring four Marvel superheroes to the streaming video service. The head honchos from Disney, Marvel, and Netflix made a joint announcement about the start of filming on the 'Daredevil' Netflix Originals series.

The press release told us where all of the series will be filmed.


"Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, The Walt Disney Company, Marvel and Netflix Inc. today announced that Marvel's landmark live-action television series, which will bring Marvel's "flawed heroes of Hell's Kitchen" characters to Netflix, the world's leading Internet TV network, will principally film in New York State." - Disney/Marvel


We also learned when the first of the Netflix series - 'Daredevil' - would begin filming. 


"Filming is set to begin in the Summer 2014 and will create at least three thousand jobs in New York State including up to 400 full time jobs. The project will include nearly 60 one-hour episodes focused on the 4 Defenders characters: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist." - Disney/Marvel


The press release didn't offer a timeline for the roll-out of the 'Daredevil' series, but I think it's a safe bet we'll see the first episode in February or March of 2015.
