Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ is Out on Netflix
In case you missed the news yesterday, Netflix ~finally~ released Marvel’s The Defenders, the culmination of all four of their superhero shows on the platform: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. (If you’ve seen those shows by now, it goes without saying that this is no series for kids, however much they might love comic books.)
Seeing these four team up Avengers-style is a real treat for us Marvel fans. The show manages to offer up plenty of fanservice without wasting much time getting new viewers caught up. The music is awesome, especially during Luke Cage’s scenes. Iron Fist is a better fighter here than he was in his own first season. Jessica Jones still has an enjoyable way of mouthing off to everyone. Sigourney Weaver’s villain character is one of the best to come out of the Defenders universe. Charlie Cox’s Daredevil remains my favorite character of the bunch, and he deserves to get some screentime in the MCU someday, perhaps alongside Spider-Man.
In other words, everything about this show is awesome. I don’t want to spoil anything else, but if you’re at all a fan of the previous Marvel/Netflix series and you haven’t started binge-watching this one yet, what are you waiting for?
