If it has not been made apparent to the world at large, Marvel and Netflix are a match made in heaven! First, they introduced the world to Daredevil and Jessica Jones via their own original series and now the match is striking again twice with series based on the martial artist and superhero, Iron Fist, and The Defenders, a loose knit team of heroes that will consist of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist!
First we begin with Danny Rand, aka “Iron Fist.” This hero is a trained warrior who can harness his own chi energy to coat his fists making them powerful enough to punch through nearly anything! When Netflix first announced the series an Asian actor was rumored to be cast as the titular hero, but it seems from the teaser trailer they have stuck to the characters Caucasian, traditional roots. Check it out below!
The trailer looks awesome! Clearly, Danny is in for the fight of his life while we explore his origins. We wonder what his costume will look like though!
The Defenders, trailer however, is a bit more cryptic and ominous. As aforementioned this show will be based off a team of Netflix’s Marvel heroes. However, whereas Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist all have their series ready to go, Luke Cage’s has yet to be announced. He has appeared and been developed in Jessica Jones, we just hope the development will continue further. Check out the teaser trailer below!
Now is definitely the time for superhero lovers everywhere to invest in Netflix! The Defenders won’t be like the Avengers, we imagine, but this mysterious villain and his statement about our forte of heroes makes us think the threats and interweaving of these characters will be just as magnificent. The bigger question is will The Defenders be joining the Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War? As you recall Thanos is on his way to Earth and The World’s Mightiest Heroes will need all the help they can get defending mankind! We will keep you posted as more news about these shows and their heroes develops!
