Netflix teasers reveal extended cast for Marvel’s ‘Defenders’


Filming is underway for The Defenders, featuring cast members from each of Marvel‘s four Netflix series.

We already knew who the main characters would be—Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Iron Fist, with Sigourney Weaver playing an as-yet unnamed villain—but the supporting cast hadn’t been confirmed.

Thanks to a couple of new teasers from Netflix, we now know who will be providing backup for the main Defenders team.

While most fans already guessed that Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, and Misty Knight would appear in The Defenders, Malcolm from Jessica Jones is a (very welcome) surprise.

The Defenders is set to premiere in 2017, following the first season of Iron Fist.
