Marvel’s The Defenders
drama / Netflix
finally, Netflix’s collection of marvel heroes gets its own supergroup, as Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) team up to take on global super villains The Hand. Rather than the usual 13, this has just eight episodes, making it a much punchier experience – although be warned
that the four heroes don’t even meet until the third episode’s finale. The plot picks up from where the New York heroes’ stories (especially Daredevil’s) left off, with the four forced to work together to combat the nefarious Sigourney Weaver and her evil outfit. It’s an action-packed, tightly written series that offers satisfying closure for these misfit superheroes.
