Marvel and Netflix's upcoming Defenders series will feature a few first-time meetings, including one between Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).
The show is currently shooting, and photos are starting to make their way online from the set. Charlie Cox France recently posted some new photos that show Cox and Ritter clowning around on set in their character wardrobe. They seem to be having an enjoyable time on set, which bodes well for the rest of the show. The four have come together now a few different times, but fans are excited to see them in full costume.
The Defenders will bring phase one of the Netflix Marvel universe to a close, and will likely set up the next big phase of the universe. In addition to the core four shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist), the universe will also be adding a Punisher series to its schedule, and the rumor is that it will also introduce three other characters, those being Blade, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight. Nothing is confirmed of course, but it is interesting to ponder how they'll fit in with the other shows.
Jessica Jones will also be well represented in The Defenders, with Jones herself (Krysten Ritter) in a starring role, along with Trish Walker (Rachel Taylor), Malcolm (Eka Darville), and Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Ann Moss) confirmed. As for Luke Cage, the Defenders includes Cage (Mike Colter), Knight (Simone Missick), and Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who has starred in all three series.
Daredevil's Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) are already confirmed for the series, and it's also likely that Punisher actor Jon Bernthal might make an appearance. Iron Fist will also be present, but outside of Finn Jones, it's not known who else will make the trip.
Daredevil seasons 1 and 2, Jessica Jones season 1, and Luke Cage season 1 are all available on Netflix. Iron Fist will premiere on March 17, 2017. The Defenders expected later in the year. The Punisher does not have a release date yet.
