The Netflix branch of superheroes have been the dark horse of the Marvel empire. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and soon the Iron Fist, are banding together to micromanage the shit out of New York city.
Sigourney Weaver, touched on the show while promoting her new film When a monster calls with Monster.com.
“It has a wonderful cast, and we’re doing it right here in New York, which means a lot to me. Basically, the four heroes come up against this really nice woman, who I’m playing. It’s been a blast and I really love my character. I love the shows, too, which I wasn’t familiar with before doing this. [It’s a] real love letter to New York. To me they’re not superheroes; they’re people with a gift. It’s just a different scale, and I’m really enjoying the scale of it.”
With no word on Weaver’s role in the new series, no doubt she’ll be playing someone with a certain amount of gravitas. So whether it’s the leader of an international corporation or the united states The Defenders will have their work cut out for them
Confirmations that Elektra and Claire Temple returning to the New York based heroes alongside the Punisher, Trish Walker and Misty Knight it looks to be a jam-pack Marvel event.
