6 things we want to see in Marvel's The Defenders

But be warned: Spoilers for all the Marvel Netflix shows to date (not including Defenders) follow.

When Marvel's Netflix series culminate with The Defenders, fans can expect it to lead to another phase of series. The way that Marco's written Danny and Luke is really clever - it's not on the nose, and it feels relevant.

Marvel's The Defenders graces our Netflix screens on August 18, and it's a culmination of four television shows and five seasons worth of storylines. "When we get to the point where we realize as a group that the Hand are involved, and we don't know what's going on exactly, but we know what's going on, it's up to Danny and Matt to explain who these people are to the other two, because they've never even heard of them", Cox said.

Are you excited to see the street level heroes join forces? Taking full advantage of the digital platform and the untethered storytelling it allows creators to offer, Marvel has been taking iconic comic book characters such as Daredevil and Iron Fist and showing them in a new light over the past few years on Netflix.

Jones hinting that Iron Fist and Luke Cage (Mike Colter) could team up outside of The Defenders is a pretty exciting prospect, after all the two NY heroes used to have a whole comic book series showing off their tandem. This comes after every super hero made their solo appearance on screen through Netflix. This is the story of four solitary figures - Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realise they might be stronger as a team. For the most part, these characters have been well thought out and the actors inhibating the roles have done a great job making them their own. Daredevil is expected to start filming its third season this fall, while Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are in production with their second seasons. "Defenders" has also audaciously mirrored the company's original feature strategy, introducing a number of characters (beginning with "Iron Man") that were created to build toward - and heighten anticipation for - a promised team-up.
