Jessica Jones And Luke Cage Seen On THE DEFENDERS Set

Shooting has commenced for Netflix’s hotly anticipated series The Defenders and newly on set pictures have arrived. On Twitter, leak set photos of Krysten Ritter, Mike Cotter, and Sigourney Weaver has arrived online. Krysten Ritter plays detective Jessica Jones on the stellar Netflix drama Jessica Jones.

Mike Cotter plays Luke Cage on the less than stellar Luke Cage. Sigourney Weaver will play Alexandra, the show’s antagonist. Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing has also been spotted on set. Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist will be appearing in The Defenders. Jon Berenthal as The Punisher is has been hinted to show up in the series.

The series follows four heroes (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage) as they team up to defend Hell’s Kitchen. The Defenders is basically Netflix’s answer to The Avengers. It is by far the studio’s most anticipated show. Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra is a powerful New York mogul who threatens Hell’s Kitchen.

Her ruthless schemes forces the four heroes to take her on. The show will air during summer 2017. Season 1 of Iron Fist will air in March. Netflix’s The Punisher starring Berenthal will air this year as well. Rosario Dawson will also be returning as fan favorite Claire Temple.

So far the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Netflix Universe have not crossed over. Krysten Ritter has stated on numerous occasions that she was willing to appear in Infinity War. It is unlikely that the Netflix Marvel franchise will ever cross paths with the MCU, despite taking place in the same universe.

Daredevil‘s Marco Ramirez will be returning as showrunner of The Defenders. Plot details are still enigmatic. Critics have praised the Marvel Netflix franchise for its high quality writing and gritty tone, in comparison to the more family-friendly MCU. Jessica Jones is the first and only show in the Marvel Netflix canon to have won an Emmy.
