Never one to shy away from a dramatic entrance, Daredevil has finally shown up fully costumed in new photos from the New York City8 set of Netflix’s “The Defenders.” The four images show Charlie Cox, dressed as the Man Without Fear, standing in what looks to be a lobby.
The eight-episode miniseries brings together the main players of Marvel’s four Netflix dramas —“Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” — to thwart a new danger to Hell’s Kitchen that can only be stopped by their combined might. That threat comes, at least in part, in the form of a character played Sigourney Weaver, Alexandra, about whom little is known.
Precious few images have surfaced from “The Defenders” of a fully costumed Daredevil, but these photos do share a similar quirk: It’s rare to see Daredevil lounging around in a brightly lit room. The vigilante typically sticks to shadows, and when he does have to approach a dangerous situation it is rarely head on. This, of course, leads to the question of where exactly in the Marvel Universe was Daredevil when this photo was taken? It’s very likely the four heroes will be taking on the Hand when they return in August to Netflix, but even the nefarious ninja organization typically sticks to dreary warehouses and seemingly vacant office floors.
Arriving Aug. 18 on Netflix, “The Defenders” is a production of Marvel Television developed by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez. The miniseries 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.
