Dissecting the Netflix-Marvel superhero TV deal

|By:, SA News Editor

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter sees a winner and a loser in the deal between Netflix and Marvel to develop four new superhero series.

Pachter says the agreement calls for Netflix (NFLX) to absorb production costs which shifts risk away from Disney (DIS) to the streaming giant.

Northlake Capital's Steve Birenberg thinks Netflix can still generate significant profits out of the Marvel arrangement, but it would require one of the lesser-known superheroes creating quite a buzz.
