Marvel has yet to introduce us to its Netflix Iron Fist cast onscreen, making it difficult to generate the same excitement of joining The Defenders teamup series. Fortunately, we can at least confirm Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing will take part in the four-way miniseries, and there’s a spinoff waiting in the wings if we ever heard one.

Following earlier announcements of Scott Glenn, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie-Anne Moss, Elden Henson and Eka Darville, The Defenders now confirms Jessica Henwick will appear in her Iron Fist role as Colleen Wing. The character was briefly teased at the end of Luke Cage, but there’s every possibility of seeing a “Daughters of the Dragon” pairing, as Wing will likely get the chance to meet Misty Knight.


The team-up series will be helmed by Daredevil showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, beginning production later this year with Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson. In addition to the return of supporting cast outlined above, Sigourney Weaver has signed on as the main, as-yet-unidentified villain.

We’d guess any number of set photos and cast announcements might come in the next weeks, but how do The Defenders seem to be shaping up so far?
