It goes without saying that when Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Iron Fist team up to save New York City from evildoers, there will be a level of spectacle involved. But when the Defenders premieres on Netflix, don't be surprised if it's a bit more lighthearted than the heroes' individual series.
He called The Defenders a "Summer mash-up of all four of us," one that has a "certain lightness" to it, and one that's fun and funny. Furthermore, he said that the show was very much like a "summer popcorn thing."
Keep in mind that there will only be eight episodes in the Defenders, and that the series is rumored to take place over the course of 48 hours. So it stands to reason that the show might move at a very quickened pace to as the heroes work quickly to stop whatever thread Sigourney Weaver's character might present.
But that also means there won't be a lot of time for slow moments. Some fans' biggest complains about the Netflix series are the mid-season lulls. Hopefully Defenders shortened runtime and breakneck pace will alleviate that problem.
