Even as “Marvel’s Iron Fist” arrives on Netflix, production has wrapped on “The Defenders,” the upcoming miniseries that brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand.
The news arrives in an Instagram post by makeup artist Sarit Klein that depicts the makeup team celebrating at the show’s wrap party.
The eight-episode miniseries began filming in October in New York City. Just last week a pair of videos leaked from the set showing Luke stars Charlie Cox, Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter, Finn Jones, Simone Missick and Jessica Henwick, presumably shooting some of the final scenes.
Although little has been revealed about the plot of “The Defenders,” we do know that the four key heroes meet at offices at Midland Circle, which viewers of “Daredevil” will recognize as the location of the enormous hole in the ground discovered by Matt Murdock and Elektra in Season Two. That, of course, suggests the Hand plays a role in the miniseries. How Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra fits in remains to be seen.
Arriving on Netflix sometime this summer, “The Defenders” stars Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, Elodie Yung as Elektra, Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker and Scott Glenn as Stick.
