The Defenders - Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter)

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.

See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »

Iron Fist - Finn Jones as Danny Rand

2017 is shaping up to be a very, very good time to be a Marvel fan. Not only are we getting three Marvel movies on the big screen (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok), we’ll get to see three new Marvel shows on Netflix. The first one out that gate will be Iron Fist, starring Game of ThronesFinn Jones as the mystical martial arts master Danny Rand.

A new batch of photos shows off Jones’ take on the comic book character, along with new looks at Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup), Ward Meachum (Tom Pelphrey) — and, of course, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who is the glue holding this entire corner of the MCU together. Check out the latest images below. Read More »
