Although fans are unlikely to see a substantive crossover between Marvel’s television and film properties anytime soon, that hasn’t prevented the stars of Luke Cage and Iron First from speculating about the larger-than-life Avengers visiting the more grounded world of the Defenders.
“We’re part of the same universe,” Finn Jones told SFX Magazine. “If there ever was a mash-up between the Avengers and the Defenders, I think it’d be really nice to see the Avengers come to the Netflix world. It’d be way more interesting to see those characters fleshed out the same way as our characters are, rather than just see our characters do some big fucking fight scene! There’s nothing cool about that.”
“It would be easier to have them come into our world because it would probably be more believable,” Mike Colter added. “There’s not some huge universal thing going on, some intergalactic thing invading the planet or something like that. Stark’s up in the tower …”
For now, fans will have to settle for seeing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage team up when Defenders arrives on Netflix next month, while Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will face the Mad Titan Thanos next year in Avengers: Infinity War.
Arriving Aug. 18 on Netflix, the eight-episode Defenders stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Elodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War boasts a sprawling ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. The film arrives in theaters May 4, 2018, with the untitled sequel opening May 3, 2019.
