It’s a regular reunion for the characters of Netflix’s Marvel universe in The Defenders. In addition to the core group of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones), many of the title heroes’ supporting team will also be in the upcoming superhero ensemble series.
Characters from Daredevil like Scott Glenn (Stick) and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) will appear as well as Jessica Jones‘ Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), and Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker). Luke Cage‘s Simone Missick will reprise her role as Misty Knight. Iron Fist‘s Jessica Henwick will also appear as Colleen Wing. Finally, there’s Rosario Dawson who returns as Claire Temple, the Nick Fury of this Netflix and Marvel collaboration.
Marvel debuted the teaser trailer for their upcoming original Netflix series Luke Cage at San Diego Comic-Con this evening, where they also unveiled a teaser video for their crossover miniseries The Defenders.

The teaser is set to the isolated vocals of Kurt Cobain on Nirvana’s “Come As You Are,” and while the video doesn’t contain any footage from the series, it does have teaser images and voiceover.
If you’re like me (and many others) and found yourself binge watching Marvel’s Daredevil in its entirety last Spring, you might want to clear up some time in the coming months. Marvel has just officially revealed the launch date for the next Netflix based show, Jessica Jones, with an announcement trailer released this morning.
Check out the video here below, along with the brief description from Marvel.
Just this week it was announced that Netflix has scheduled the release of Marvel’s Daredevil for an April 10 premiere — all 13 episodes released at once for subscribers’ viewing pleasure. But as to when we will get to see the other Marvel series Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders is unclear. In fact, even with the recent castings of Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones in A.K.A. Jessica Jones, with Mike Colter as Luke Cage, production for either series has yet to begin, and according to Chief Content Officer of Netfix, Ted Sarandos, it could be up to a year before any of the Marvel shows on Netflix, beyond Daredevil, would make their Internet debut.
