Release info: Summer 2017, Netflix
Cast: Charlie Cox, Kristen Ritter, Mike Colter and Finn Jones are the titular Defenders while Hollywood legend Sigourney Weaver is their nemesis, Alexandra. The show will also feature just about the entire supporting cast of the Netflixverse, including Rosario Dawson, Elodie Yung, Simone Missick, Elden Hensen, Deborah Ann Woll, Scott Glenn and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Crew: Daredevil season 2 showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie will helm this miniseries of eight episodes. Fellow showrunners Melissa Rosenberg (Jessica Jones), Scott Buck (Iron Fist) and Cheo Hodari Coker (Luke Cage) also had some input.
What to expect: The plot of this one is being kept tightly under wraps, so we don’t know what to expect at the moment apart from the fact that our four heroes will come together to save New York (and probably themselves).
Why you should be excited: Because it’s the culmination of what the four Marvel-Netflix series have been working towards. In effect, The Defenders is a small-screen, street-smart version of The Avengers.
