The Defenders may all roam the streets of New York but, with the exception of former lovers Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, don’t actually know each other as of yet.
This is all set to change with their first meeting in Marvel’s Defenders, where they will be caught by surprise when all pursuing the shady corporation Midland Circle.
Showrunner Marco Ramirez said: “Every one of them is following their own trail of breadcrumbs, trying to unpack a mystery in New York.
“We wanted them all caught off guard. Once they’re in that room together, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, shit, who are you?'”
