Last evening, Netflix and Marvel Television hosted a panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con featuring the star-studded cast of the highly anticipated Netflix original series Marvel’s The Defenders, including Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist), Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), and Executive Producer and showrunner Marco Ramirez.
Moderated by Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, the panel was packed with surprises and sneak peeks, including an appearance by Jon Bernthal, star of the Netflix original series Marvel’s The Punisher coming out later this year and an exclusive clip shown in the room from the series, as well as the announcement of season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist.
The highlight of the night was a surprise screening of the first episode of Marvel’s “The Defenders” which the 6,000 fans were treated to almost a month before its global premiere on Netflix on August 18, 2017 at 12:01am PT.
As excited to see the series as I am, instead we share the second trailer for THE DEFENDERS was had been released - which truthfully left a happy-tear in my heart, and hence the “excitement” to watch the series!
"Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), 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.
Additional cast members include Academy-Award nominated actress Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing)."
