Christmas may be right around the corner, but The Defenders is still shooting in New York City. While we’ve yet to see the four heroes assembled as a team, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) have been spotted standing side by side, and now a new batch of images have surfaced which show Finn Jones’ Danny Rand looking…well, a lot different.
Sadly, he’s still not in his superhero costume, but he is wearing a very smart suit and tie. This is vastly different to previous set photos (specifically those from Iron Fist), and they may well spoil the fact that Danny ultimately gets back control of Rand Industries from the villainous Meachums in his solo series.
That could end up playing a key role in The Defenders, especially as someone is going to have to fund the team, right? Murdock & Nelson isn’t doing too well, Alias Investigations is just getting off the ground, and Luke Cage has only just got out of jail when this series begins, so having a billionaire and his resources around to take on The Hand will come in very handy indeed.
The Defenders is set to air at some point next year, but it could be quite a few months before Marvel and Netflix release anything official. For now though, these set photos continue to intrigue.
