With every passing day the reality of finally seeing Marvels The Defenders hit the smaller screen approaches. Iron Fist has not been released yet but buzz surrounding the forming of a second team of heroes/anti-heroes is in full-flow.
These photos give us an early glimpse of the core team but nothing else is being said about who the major villain (played by Alien queen Sigourney Weaver) is and how everyone ties to her.
Also making a return are a host of supporting players and future heroes: No-nonsense cop Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Murdock’s partners-in-law(firm)-crime Foggy Nelson (Elden Hensen) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), blind ninja Stick (Scott Glenn), Jones’ big sis and confidant Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), fun-loving sword-wielder Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), assassin Elektra (Elodie Yung), top lawyer Jeri Hogarth (Carrie Ann Moss) and everybody’s favourite night nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), all come along for the ride. Alas, no mention of The Punisher and Kingpin have been given yet.
Just like Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage SBOC will be there to view and review The Defenders (after Iron Fist) when it is released on Netflix later on in the year.
