Marvel, Netflix and NBCUniversal change debate on overseas production

International productions are building alliances with local companies as the game changes from features to streamed series.

That is pretty unlikely, though I do understand that Marvel will move more of its administrative apparatus to the Fox lot, which makes perfect sense.
