SFX - - Daredevil -

Jes­sica Jones

Star­ring a for­mer su­per­hero suf­fer­ing with post- trau­matic stress dis­or­der, last year’s Jes­sica Jones was one of the bold­est sto­ries Marvel have ever told. It’s just been re­newed for a se­cond se­ries.

Luke Cage

He was in­tro­duced in Jes­sica Jones, but later this year the man with the un­break­able skin is set to star in his own se­ries. Not much is known about the plot, but it’s said that Rosario Daw­son will also reprise her Dare­devil role as Claire Tem­ple.

Iron Fist

It’s early days for Iron Fist, which is set to see long- miss­ing kung- fu mas­ter Daniel Rand make his long- awaited re­turn to New York City. No one has been cast yet and there’s no news on when it’s due to film.

The De­fend­ers

The big one. Dare­devil, Jes­sica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all team­ing up as a gritty, small- screen Avengers. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Jeph Loeb has con­firmed that the minis­eries will start film­ing af­ter all the other in­di­vid­ual se­ries.
