With Marvel’s Iron Fist set to be released in just a few months, we are also near to the release of The Defenders series which also comes out next year. Last weekend at Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, Mike Colter, the star of Luke Cage, had his panel where he chatted with fans of the character and the Marvel Universe.
During the panel, Colter teased working with actor Finn Jones on the upcoming The Defenders series. “Finn Jones, I was just hanging out with him yesterday. So I’m going back to New York, start filming. We are getting ready to do “Heroes for Hire” eventually, come on!”
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with a single common aim – to save New York City. This is the story of four personals, burdened with their own personal life problems, who during the course of time realize the four might be even stronger when put together.
Marvel’s The Defenders, starring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Debroah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Sigourney Weaver as the mysterious big bad, is set to be released sometime in 2017, only on Netflix. The series will be run by Daredevil show-runners Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez who will serve as show-runners here too, with Drew Goddard set to be an executive producer on the show.
