Defenders Officially Adds Misty Knight And Karen Page To Cast


Marvel's upcoming team-up mini-series "The Defenders" has added two more to its cast. The series, which will bring together the leads of Marvel's four Netflix series, has added "Luke Cage's" Simone Missick and "Daredevil's" Deborah Ann Woll to its cast.

This will mark Woll's third season of television as Nelson and Murdock's intrepid secretary-turned-reporter Karen Page. "Defenders" will also see Missick return as Misty Knight, a character she played in the recently released "Luke Cage" season one. The extent of both of their roles, including whether or not Misty herself will be a full-fledged Defender, remains unknown.

Missick previously hinted at Misty Knight's involvement in the series. Back in September, Missick said, “I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on ‘The Defenders." This marks as official confirmation of the detective's role on the series.

Karen Page will also pop up in more series besides "Defenders" and "Daredevil"; the actress was spotted on the set for Netflix's upcoming "Punisher" series, which will see the pair of characters further develop a dynamic first seen in season two of "Daredevil."

Executive produced by Douglas Petrie, Marco Ramirez, Drew Goddard and Jeph Loeb, “Marvel’s Defenders” arrives on Netflix in 2017 and unites Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist.
