Marvel’s The Defenders is Going to be a Culmination of Awesome
“Jessica doesn’t want to play with others – but in the end she is gooey inside and decides to help, even though she makes fun of them.”
The Defenders San Diego Comic Con panel was nothing short of awesome, just like the show is sure to be. It opened with a tear filled moment in which Jeph Loeb received the Inkpot award for Comics and TV. Loeb is a television writer and producer who was best known for producing TV series such as LOST and Smallville, before he became vice president of Marvel television in 2010.
The Defenders is a Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the stars of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. After the massive success of these shows, The Defenders is sure to pull in heavy viewership. The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Sigourney Weaver, Danny Rand, and Mike Colter.
The panel brought with it some seriously good news for fans of Marvel television:
Season two of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are in production, and season two of Iron Fist has been ordered.
And, more good news:
The Punisher show is now shooting.
We also learned a little about Elektra:
“Elektra is an amnesiac trained by Alexandra to be a weapon. We don’t know how much of previous Elektra is still there.”
As for Alexandra herself, Sigourney told us,
“Alexandra is a very interesting woman. She’s a big Daredevil fan.”
As far as challenges go, the cast and crew had this to say:
“Big challenge was making The Defenders its own world honoring all the characters.”
