Marvel's The Defenders will be more than just a crossover. It will be the climax of all four of Marvel's Netflix series so far.
“The villains that we are dealing with are a combination of several entities and they all have something to do with our separate stories that have been played out in each of our own individual series,” Colter tells TV Guide. “So this has been going on for a while. It wasn’t obvious in each individual series, but in this series you will find out that the things that happened to all of us basically were all because of one entity, and that’s what's going to kind of tie things together and then we’ll see that and understand that and before you know it eventually we will fight together or not.
"We’ll do things in a certain way. It’s very difficult when you all have such strong passionate viewpoints to kind of reconcile and make sure that everybody’s on the same page. It doesn’t work that way, but we’ll do the best we can.”
As fans might expect, Colter also suggested that Marvel's The Defenders will have some excellent fight scenes.
Marvel’s The Defenders is the miniseries that will bring together all of Marvel's Netflix stars, including Iron Fist (Finn Jones) Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter), to protect New York City from its greatest threat yet.
