Lots of established characters confirmed for The Defenders

It won't just be the titular heroes teaming up when Netflix and Marvel release The Defenders next year; a whole host of supporting characters will be joining them for the 8-episode event.

Joining Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock / Daredevil will be Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Scott Glenn as Stick and Rosario Dawson's as Claire Temple. Dawson of course, has been the connective tissue linking all three Marvel / Netflix shows to date.

From Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones we'll be seeing more of Rachel Taylor's Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss' Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville's Malcolm Ducasse. Meanwhile Simone Missick will be back as Misty Knight alongside Mike Colter's Luke Cage. Finn Jones' will of course be playing Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist, reprising his role after making his debut earlier that year.

Sigourney Weaver will be playing the main villain.

It's an impressive cast and is surely to be one of the highlights of the Marvel Cinematic Universe calendar in 2017...
