In an interview with IGN, Joe Quesada (Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer) explained that though the scope differs between Marvel films and tv shows, the stakes are just as important in the television series as the films.
“… It is the smaller, darker part of the Marvel Universe. The Avengers are about saving the world. Daredevil, Jessica Jones and all those other characters, they’re about saving a neighborhood. They’re about saving a block; they’re about saving an apartment complex. So it’s smaller, but the stakes still feel the same because they’re just as important. To the people living in Hell’s Kitchen, saving their neighborhood is as important to the people in Manhattan when aliens start coming out of a portal in the sky and the Avengers came to save them.”
