It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official. Not only will Daredevil showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie helm The Defenders, but Drew Goddard will take an active position as executive producer.

Marvel’s first foray into street-level heroism drew comparisons with The Wire, but Luke Cage may much more accurately wield the title, per showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker. The Netflix series boss opens up on the “sophisticated” approach with a dash of ‘90s hip-hop, while Mike Colter promises a familiar sight for comic fans.
As often tends to be the case with TV, Finn Jones winning the role of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist brought troubling implications for his Game of Thrones role as Loras Tyrell, last seen being whisked off to a dungeon in Season 5. Jones will at least return for Season 6, but also claims that Iron Fist and The Defenders wouldn’t prevent him from doing both. Don’t bet on it, though.
Marvel’s Netflix Defenders may have their eye on a late 2016 shoot, but they’ll first have to go through Iron Fist. So too will sinister comic character Harold Meachum, now cast with Lord of the Rings and 300 favorite David Wenham.
Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist faces a more uphill battle than some of the other Defenders, but regardless of any controversy surrounding the role, star Finn Jones appears to be doing his homework. The erstwhile Game Thrones star opens up to detail some of his martial arts regiments, spiritual research and more.
Even more eyebrow-raising news from Warner Bros. following reports that the studio is looking to decrease the number of films they release each year: Death Note, the forthcoming adaptation of the hit Japanese manga, is moving over to Netflix, as the streaming service is in late-stage negotiations to take the project off of WB’s hands.
Well, if Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist had already pilfered one notable Game of Thrones star, it seems to have snuck a second on its way out. Marvel’s Colleen Wing has been found, as Iron Fist adds Jessica Henwick in the fan-favorite role.
Jessica Jones has been understandably quiet since Marvel confirmed news of a second Netflix season, with production unlikely to begin before team-up mini-series The Defenders. Marvel too hasn’t exactly proven forthcoming, but a new executive producer joining Jessica Jones’ ranks for Season 2 could well get the ball rolling.
