The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in full swing for 2017 and beyond. The most recent installment in the successful franchise is “Logan,” the last Hugh Jackman-as-Wolverine film. Fans of the clawed hero have been mourning, but this is a message that goes out to all Marvel fans: perk up and get ready for a major binge watching session. Set to be released this year is the new Netflix series, “The Defenders.”
“The Defenders” chronicles the merging paths of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist. These four solitary heroes, each with their own abilities and Netflix series, join forc
es to protect New York City, realizing that they just may be stronger as a whole than if they were alone.
Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage each have shows currently available on Netflix, with Iron Fist available to watch on March 17. “The Defenders” itself does not have a set date for release, although fans reckon that it will be soon. There has been some concern over releasing the last Defender so close to when the combining show is supposed to hit screens, but right now it is all speculation.
Currently, the Comic-Con teaser trailer for “The Defenders” is available to watch just about anywhere, and there is a link below.
