After Iron Fist I'm a little less enthusiastic about this, but still looking forward to it.

I've read conflicting things on whether The Punisher/Frank Castle/Shane from Walking Dead will be in The Defenders. Hope he is, he was the best part of the second season of Daredevil

Nsguy, Sigourney Weaver (spl) is a bad guy? Say it ain't so.

Re: Marvel's - The Defenders - Netflix

Haven't watched Luke Cage or Iron Fist yet. Got 2 episodes into Cage and got bored. Would appreciate it if someone who watches this can tell me if it's essentially watching prior to watching this series.

I feel like she's been a bad girl before. Am I wrong?

I would suggest skipping Iron Fist unless you're a big MCU fan. I loved Luke Cage, especially the first 8 episodes or so but to each their own.

Not sure when I'll get a chance to watch this, but I'll definitely be posting my reactions when I do.

Yeah my enthusiasm has waned as Luke Cage wasn't great and Iron fist was horrible from start to end.

I am a big MCU and was a comic booker in my childhood (80s), but I never read the Defenders cast so it's all new to me and I am less invested. I really liked the two seasons of Daredevil and will definitely watch Defenders to see where that character goes but the first two episodes of Cage were so slow I could get into it.

Re: Marvel's - The Defenders - Netflix

Wasn't Doc Stephen Strange in Marvel's Defenders team? Am i thinking of as different team? I thought they were like a west-coast Avengers type thing, before the West Coast Avengers assembled.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Re: Marvel's - The Defenders - Netflix

I'm going to try and watch the first episode during lunch.

I'll report back.


ETA: Watched the first episode during lunch. It was pretty much a "bringing everyone up-to-date" on what each character's been doing since we last saw them.

Daredevil, won a case against a large pharmaceutical company, and got a large settlement for the injured party.

Iron Fist, along with Colleen try and gather information on "The Hand" from a man in Cambodia. After the man is killed by a sword-wielding woman, they head to New York.

Someone mentioned earlier in the thread about how they hated Iron Fist. I couldn't agree more. I almost stopped watching when he came on screen, and the episode opened with him.

Jessica Jones is awaken, sitting at a bar by the bartender. He wants her to leave because it's daytime and she's been there all night.

She runs into her best friend, Trisha Walker who tells her about several requests for interviews. Of course she refuses, because she doesn't consider herself an "H-word" (Hero).

When we last saw Luke Cage, he was being driven back to prison to finish out his original sentence. But, his legal team, led by "Foggy" Nelson has found a way to have him released early.

At this early stage, none of our characters have met one another. But, because "The Hand" has moved to America, and New York in particular, it probably won't be long.

Oh, and I forgot to mention Sigourney Weaver’s character. She's playing "The Hand", who we find out in this initial episode,
Spoiler: might be spoilerish
doesn't have long to live
.

Whatever her plan, because of her pending death, she puts into action by ordering Madame Gao to up the timetable.

At the end of the episode, there's an apparent earthquake engulfing the whole city, and making itself aware to our "Defenders".
