With just a couple of months to go before Netflix original series The Defenders hits the streaming service – bringing the heroes that have made up four of their own solo series together for the first time – more information surrounding the show has been creeping to the surface.
Speaking at Houston’s Comicpalooza, Mike Colter who plays Luke Cage in the show teased: “The great thing about Defenders that I think is unique – and this doesn’t give too much away – is that where we start at in the Defenders as far as a team, as individuals, our journey and the psychology behind all our characters, we start at such a weird place. And there’s a lot of things that happen in that ultimately, where we end up is back to where we started in a sense.
“We’re kind of changed in a way but somehow some things have to go back to the way they were. Some people will be completely changed by the end in different directions. Some will be irrevocably changed for good. So it’s gonna be unique to see where they leave everybody off individually. So immediately after the Defenders, everybody bleeds off into their own show.”
We’ll of course also see Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) teaming up with Luke Cage in the series, as the four take on one of the biggest threats to ever emerge in New York City.
Exactly what that threat may be still remains to be seen, but we can be sure it’s going to make for compelling and must-see television.
The Defenders arrives on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
