Because of the holidays, many of our favorite superhero shows — Agents of SHIELD, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl — are on their midseason breaks. So, how should you spend your time? Well, you could hang out with family members you only see once or twice a year, or you could make yourself some hot cocoa, suck on a tasty candy cane, and binge-watch Netflix's Marvel shows.
Marvel's The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
The 8-episode limited series will star Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, Elodie Yung as Elektra, and Sigourney Weaver (Aliens) playing a significant but unspecified role. The cast also includes Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Eka Darville as Malcolm, and Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeri Hogarth.
