After the amazingness that has been Netflix’s “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” I am pretty pumped for the Avenger’s style Netflix Marvel series “The Defenders.” And according to “Daredevil” actor Charlie Cox, the series is moving closer than we thought.
The actor revealed during a press event that series that incorporates many of the Netflix Marvel heroes will begin shooting this year. The news came out when a fan asked whether or not a third season for “Daredevil” was in the works. (Currently, a third season has not been announced. However, a spin-off series, centered on Bernthal’s character Frank Castle / Punisher and titled Marvel’s The Punisher, was ordered by Netflix in April 2016.)
“What we do know is, at the end of this year, we’re going to be making The Defenders, and, of course, Daredevil is very much a part of that foursome,” the actor said.
We are still waiting on the Iron Fist series starring Finn Jones and the Luke Cage series which stars Mike Colter (the character has appeared already in “Jessica Jones.) Marvel’s The Defenders features Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist all fighting side by side to keep their micromanaged New York City Block known as Hell’s Kitchen safe.
There has been no official announcement regarding The Defenders premiere date nor the first season of Iron Fist or the second season of Jessica Jones. Luke Cage’s first season to premiere on Netflix Sept. 30.
