Everything we know for sure about The Defenders can be neatly folded into one relatively simple sentence. Here goes. Ahem: The Defenders is an eight-episode series executive produced by Daredevil’s Douglas Petrie, and Marco Ramirez will see the lead characters from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist teaming up to take on a larger threat and a lead villain played by Sigourney Weaver. Almost everything else, including the most-likely-true theory that this makeshift superhero team will be taking on the evil ninja organization known as The Hand (introduced in Daredevil season 2), is pretty much speculation at this point.
But now we can add another piece of information in the “known facts” column. Director and Marvel veteran S.J. Clarkson has been brought on to direct episodes of The Defenders.
