    The Defenders that sleazed in August 18.

    The limited series event will star Charlie Cox from Daredevil, Kyrsten Ritter for Jessica Jones, Mike Colter from Luke Cage, and Finn Jones (barf) from Iron First (more barf). Most of the supporting characters from each of those shows will appear. Sigourney Weaver will be playing the villain. It is not know which character from the comics (if the character is from the comics at all) she will be playing, however, it has been rumored that she will be playing a much older version of Typhoid Mary.

    This Twitter post essentially confirmed that a certain character will be appearing in the show. It is a spoiler.

    I am very exited for this. I loved all of the marvel Netflix shows except Iron Fist. I thought that Jessica Jones should have won series and Kyrsten Ritter should have won actress. I also thought Daredevil season 1 should have been nominated for drama series a long with Charlie acid in lead actor and Vincent D’Onofrio in supporting (and winning guest for season 2). Luke Cage is also great and should be a contender.

    I am very curious to see if this can make an impact at the Emmys. Sigourney Weaver seems like a potential nominee. I am curious to see if all four leads will be campaigned for the lead category. Hopefully it can make an impact by competing in limited. I could easily see a globe and SAG nomination for
    Weaver, which will help us to determine if it has a shot at the Emmys.

    I feel like Marvel has been more miss than hit with their Netflix shows so I’ll probably skip this unless it gets really great reviews.

    I am concerned about the quality though because they chose the show runners from Daredevil season two, which caused a massive downward shift in quality. It was a poorly written mess. However, hopefully they learned from there mistakes and create an awesome show. I was not a fan of season 1 of the Leftovers and look what happened.

    Surprised that this is a spoiler when the character has a canon resurrection, but maybe the spoiler is reappearing so soon? Regardless, ew. Season 2 was great until that plot arc started and made it crash right into bad that was only somewhat better than Iron Fist. Not looking forward to that unless the writing/accent has vastly improved away, I got so sick of the ~love drama.~

    Other than that, can’t wait to see them all together! Though I’m doubtful of it getting good noms at the Emmys when they all but ignored the best seasons (DD1 and JJ). It’s been too long since I’ve gotten to see Ritter as Jessica.

    The only one that has been a critical miss was Iron Fist. It was bad but not as bad as the critics said. Daredevil season 2 was a borderline mess but Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Daredevil season 1 were all critical hits.

    It’s a spoiler because most people are not familiar with the cannon. I know it but a lot people here do not. I personally loved Yung as Elektra but the writing was a mess and they couldn’t handle all of those storylines. The punisher storyline in the second half was a mess with that stupid blacksmith stuff.

    I haven’t seen Luke Cage, but I thought Daredevil season 1 was good not great, season 2 was really bad, and I hated Jessica Jones, couldn’t get through it. I tried Iron Fist just to see if it was as bad as critics said and it was.

    Penny and a Dime should have been nominated for writing and Bernthal along with it.

    New Trailer

     

    Looms really good. Sigourney looks great. I’m super glad Missick is back. She should be nominated for lead actress for Luke Cage. I love Ritter. She should have won. I did hate every scene with Finn Jones though.

    I needed Matt and Jessica’s tandem sass brigade like YESTERDAY.

    Hopefully this will lift Finn Jones up and give Luke better things to do than the Diamondcrap arc. As for Sense8 I’m not overly hyped yet… but hopeful… and optimistic.

    I’m quite excited for it. Maybe I should check out Luke Cage and second season of Daredevil after all. Oh, and Sigourney Weaver is so getting nominated for GG, SAG and Emmy. With possible wins at all of them.

    Luke Cage is good until they kill off the best character, Daredevil season 2 is good until they take focus away from the Punisher and Elektra’s puss makes Matt forget about every long-winded speech about vigilantism ever. After that you might as well read summaries because it’s no longer worth watching.

    Also does Iron Fist get any better/more watchable? It’s sitting in my queue and I’m a completionist enough to watch all of Prison Break but even I am considering just reading about it and not sitting through it.

    it does get less boring. The only terrible actors are Jones, Wendham, and the guy that plays Ward. The dialogue stays really bad though. But I would finish it if I were you
