If the Netflix thing takes off (and honestly, after the proven viability of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, I think Disney is doing the right thing going with Netflix,) I think we could see Marvel producing a new "phase" system for their television-format series'. A win for Daredevil and company could easily open the door to Cloak and Dagger, Runaways and Dr. Strange (characters frequently at the top of Marvel's list of potential series.) I see Moon Knight falling into maybe phase 3, probably 4 if all these other shows do well.
The thing to realize about these Netflix shows is not to expect them to be more than a couple seasons long. Unless a show does incredibly well, I'd guess Marvel is going with a spaghetti noodle model for their shows (toss a bunch at the wall and see what sticks.) If they don't cancel, end or combine some of their properties, they're going to be dumping hundreds of millions of dollars into a dozen shows and movies by the end of the decade and that's a big risk if it turns out nobody wants to watch a third of them. I know I wouldn't be able to keep up with more than two or three shows and still have time for work and the rest of my life.
I hope it all goes well, and I'd love to see Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones combined into a Heroes for Hire series that mimics the setup of the Abnett/Lanning series. Marvel could use it as a way of testing the waters for potential solo series as operatives like Moon Knight pop in for missions.
