The Defenders: We Just Saw the First Episode
There was no shiny Stark Tower or fancy Quinjets or enchanted hammers to see at Marvel and Netflix’s The Defenders panel at San Diego Comic-Con today. Nope, just the “street level” heroes that have make such a big mark on the streaming service in recent years — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. And they made a big mark here at SDCC too, with a surprise screening of the first episode of the show, plus the announcement that Iron Fist is getting a second season, and a first look at the new Punisher series starring Jon Bernthal.
Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb moderated the panel, with Marvel/Netflix stars Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Finn Jones (Iron Fist), Bernthal, Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elodie Young (Elektra) and Sigourney Weaver (who plays the Defenders’ baddie, Alexandra) and Defenders showrunner Marco Ramirez taking the stage to get fans excited about the show prior to its debut on August 18.
