‘Marvel’s The Defenders’: Everything We Know So Far.

‘Marvel’s The Defenders’: Everything We Know So Far.

Both Marvel and Netflix have been teasing the series since last summer, when they dropped a teaser trailer, but thanks to set photos, official casting announcements, and lots and lots of Easter eggs, we’re finally getting a sense of how the series is shaping up.

What’s the deal with Marvel’s The Defenders?

Marvel’s The Defenders is set to be an eight-episode-long miniseries that ties the entire Netflix Marvel universe together. The entire season will drop worldwide on Netflix on August 18, 2017. The series is being showrun by Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, the same team behind Season Two of Daredevil. 

Who’s going to be in it?

Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil)
Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones
Mike Colter as Luke Cage
Finn Jones as Danny Rand (aka Iron Fist)
Elodie Yung as Elektra Nachios
Sigourney Weaver as “Alexandra”
Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse
Simone Missick as Misty Knight
Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page
Eldon Hanson as Foggy Nelson
Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth
Scott Glenn as Stick
Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker (aka Hellcat)
Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple
Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing
Marko Zaror as Shaft

 

So who are The Defenders fighting?

Sigourney Weaver is playing a villain simply named “Alexandra.” Comic book nerds are stymied as to who her comic book alter ego might be, but we got some clues from a big feature that Entertainment Weekly did recently. Weaver describes her as “really smart,” and show runner Marco Ramirez calls her “a very powerful force in New York City.”

Are they fighting anyone else? What about The Hand?

The Hand, a super secret order of bad ninjas obsessed with magic, have foiled both Daredevil and Iron Fist in the past. We know that Elodie Yung is reprising her role as Elektra (who is now totally Black Sky, The Hand’s mystical undead weapon) and that Scott Glenn will also be back.

The Hand seems like a natural fit for bringing the team together and in Season Two of Daredevilthey had been guarding a really creepy big hole. Also of note? That Bulletin cover that namecheck Midland Circle has an inset story about a “Crackpot Scientist” seeking a “Lost City.” Yeah, that sounds ominous.

Is The Punisher going go show up in The Defenders?

Interesting question. The Punisher, aka Frank Castle, will be getting his own Netflix series later this year. We know that Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page will appear in the series and Ben Barnes will co-star as Billy Russo, an old “friend” from Special Forces. However, there has been no announcement that Jon Bernthal will join the cast of The Defenders.

 

Marvel’s The Defenders debuts on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
