Mini-Series Gets New Poster
It took four excruciating long years from the introduction of Iron Man until we were finally treated to the mighty ensemble of The Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Two years from 2015 and four shows later, we’re getting our street-level version of a superhero ensemble in Marvel’s The Defenders streaming on Netflix. Consisting of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones), New York City’s grittiest brawlers will have to face a new villain in town – Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver. She’ll be assisted by more than just expendable henchmen – Elektra (Elodie Yung) comes back from the dead, as teased at the end of Daredevil Season 2.
With the premiere of the 8-episode mini-series around the corner, 38 new images were just released. While the images give us a detailed look into some upcoming scenes, there’s nothing new we haven’t already seen from the recent trailer, released at SDCC. Most of the pictures, however, do keep us curious as to what’s happening off screen. Yet, there’s still no sign from our speculation of a Punisher appearance, nor is there a hint of the anticipated female duo of Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) a.k.a. “Daughters of the Dragon”. It was reported during SDCC ’17 that Misty Knight will be included in the second season of Iron Fist.
Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), and Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse) will be reprising their roles in The Defenders.
The Defenders will stream on Netflix, August 18, 2017.
