Fans have been waiting for some time to see the heroes of the Marvel Netflix universe come together under one roof. The Defenders is just what they've been waiting for, and the studio has released a new shot of the powerful group.
Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Iron Fist (Finn Jones), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) stand unified in the latest photo from Empire, shown on an elevator before the epic hallway fight
There will be a dysfunctional family vibe evident from the start, but Colter has high hopes for the team. “We’re very reluctant at first. Nobody really wants to work with anyone. By the end of the show, I think it might be more like The Hangover.” laughs Colter. “‘I don’t ever want to see you again!’”
