Netflix and Marvel release teasers for LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST, and THE DEFENDERS

Marvel Netflix

Right from the beginning, the Marvel/Netflix partnership has had a very solid plan: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and then, finally, a show that would bring all four heroes together: The Defenders. Sure, there’s been some additions along the way — a second season of Daredevil as well as the development of a second season of Jessica Jones plus a Punisher solo series (he made his first appearance during DD Season 2) — but now that original plan is coming full circle. Today during SDCC 2016, Marvel revealed three new teaser trailers based on upcoming series exclusive to Netflix.

LUKE CAGE
Full Season Air Date: September 30th, 2016

Actor Mike Colter’s Luke Cage first appeared during Jessica Jones Season 1 and now he’ll be receiving his long-awaited solo series. Co-starring Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Erik LaRey Harvey, and Mahershala Ali.

IRON FIST
Full Season Air Date: Early 2017

Iron Fist tells the story of Danny Rand (Finn Jones), a young man born into wealth who discovers the mystical martial arts force known as the Iron Fist after a tragic accident. Co-starring Jessica Henwick.

THE DEFENDERS
Full Season Air Date: Fall 2017

The Defenders is set to become THE AVENGERS of the television world as Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) come together to save New York City. Set to co-star numerous supporting actors from all four Netflix series including Scott Glenn’s Stick whose voice can be heard during the trailer below.

On top of all this, Marvel exec Joe Quesada also announced that a third season for Daredevil has been ordered by Netflix.
