We first spoke with Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez by phone when they wrote and produced the second season of Daredevil. They are big fans of /Film, especially Ramirez, so when I met them in person at a Marvel Television cocktail party for the Television Critics Association, it was fun to geek out together in person.
Ramirez and Petrie went from showrunning Daredevil to showrunning the long-anticipated Marvel TV series The Defenders. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will meet in the fifth Marvel TV series on Netflix in 2017. Here is what Petrie and Ramirez were able to say about the upcoming show at this point.

We’ve always known who the lead characters in The Defenders would be: Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). It’s basically the small-screen version of The Avengers, and that’s been the plan all along. What’s less clear is which other familiar faces might join them. But recently, Daredevil star Elden Henson let slip that his character Foggy would be reporting for duty. Read More »

Netflix’s little corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to expand in a big way, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders all coming in the next year or so. But today, we have some updates on what we won’t be seeing from them in the near future. The company has revealed that they’re holding off on Jessica Jones season 2, Daredevil season 3, and Punisher until after The Defenders, which means we likely won’t see them until 2018 or so. Oh, and they’ve also explained why they opted not to pick up Agent Carter, which became the MCU’s first cancelled series earlier this summer. Read More »
Who said you need something as silly as footage featuring actors and such to put together a trailer? The first teaser trailer for The Defenders was revealed at Marvel and Netflix‘s Comic-Con panel earlier today, giving all of the superhero junkies in the crowd their first taste of the miniseries that will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage team up.

Marvel Studios already brought several superhero film franchises together when they assembled The Avengers back in 2012. Now they’re getting them back together every few years with new franchises beginning and previous solo superhero franchises continuing in the years between.

But will the two ever meet?
Fans are hungry to see the simultaneously connected but separate worlds of Marvel’s movies and TV shows come together in a big way, and many are hoping that it will happen in the two-part sequel Avengers: Infinity War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, fresh off scripting Captain America: Civil War, recently addressed the possibility of a Defenders Avengers crossover in Infinity War, and the chances don’t seem to be very high.
