The casting updates for Marvel/Netflix's upcoming "Defenders" team-up mini-series keep coming, as the show adds more and more supporting characters from "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones" and "Luke Cage." The latest trio to be cast include Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple, Rachael Taylor's Trish Walker and Scott Glenn's Stick.

This will be Glenn's third season as Daredevil's blind ninja master Stick, following his role in the first two seasons of the Man Without Fear's solo series. Taylor will return for more as Trish Walker, Jessica Jones' best friend and a burgeoning superhero in her own right; Walker is known as the Avenger Hellcat in the source material. And Dawson's involvement as nurse Claire Temple in "Defenders" continues her streak of appearing in every season of every Marvel/Netflix show so far. Dawson was last seen in "Luke Cage" season one.
Another trio of actors was added to the cast just yesterday; Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth) and Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse) will appear on the show. Earlier this week Netflix confirmed that Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) will also appear on the show. And all of this is in addition to the four lead characters of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones).
Executive produced by Douglas Petrie, Marco Ramirez, Drew Goddard and Jeph Loeb, “Marvel’s Defenders” arrives on Netflix in 2017 and stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Simone Missick, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rosario Dawson, Rachael Taylor, Scott Glenn and Sigourney Weaver.
