It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Netflix and Marvel’s collaborative efforts. I think Daredevil and Jessica Jones are some of the better shows out there right now. I love the first half of Luke Cage and thought Iron Fist was fine. So you could say I’m pretty excited to see this summer’s team up between our titular heroes (stop laughing at titular, RDT). I think we’re all hoping that The Defenders is more Daredevil and less Iron Fist and from what we see here that looks like that’ll be the case.
Originally in the comics The Defenders was a group with Doctor Strange and The Hulk at it’s core. It has had, however, a rotating cast throughout the years with members including Namor, The Silver Surfer, and Netflix mainstays Hellcat and Luke Cage. Usually it’s a team up of heroes that are known as loners and outsiders and that’s definitely what we’re getting with this incarnation. Though the comic version deals with more mystic threats, The Hand (which look to be the “big bad” of this series) is pretty mystical as far as The MCU goes. This also looks to have more of a street level vibe similar to the Marvel Knights line, than the original Defenders but hey, we weren’t getting a Defenders movie so why not use a preexisting name. It does look as though this series will be tying up all sorts of storylines from the previous five and setting up the next seasons like Jessica Jones Season 2 and hopefully a Heroes For Hire series.
