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.
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.
