The next Marvel Netflix show is the The Defenders, which focuses on the team up of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Iron Fist himself Finn Jones, talked to Metro about what it’s going to be like to have all these characters coming together. Here’s the quote below.
They look like they’re about to drop the hottest mixtape of 2017
“It’s really great. The four of us, me, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, Mike Colter, we have such a great dynamic between us as actors and as friends. It feels like I’ve known them for my entire life. We’ve all been through the same thing of leading our own shows, so when we come on set together, we all understand what we’ve been through and we all support and appreciate each other’s work. The way all the Defenders come together isn’t quite what you’d imagine, and it’s really fun bringing that to life in a very authentic way.”
All these characters have very different personality traits, so it isn’t surprising that they would meet under weird circumstances. A conversation between Jessica Jones and Danny Rand would be very entertaining, since those two are the polar opposites. Even Jones acknowledges how weird they all are, and how reluctant these characters are to team up.
“We’re a bunch of oddballs. We’re a bunch of characters who find ourselves in this situation and we’re kind of forced into joining up as a team. If anything it’s kind of a reluctant, ‘oh god, are we actually going to do this?’ Rather than a proud ‘We are the heroes!’ It’s the complete opposite and I think the show is all the more realistic because of it.”
However these characters come together, it’ll most definitely be a sight to see. It seems like they are going to be the anti-Avengers, where they aren’t going to be expecting the same fanfare that team gets. Jones went on talk about how the movie heroes should appear in the Netflix world.
“I think the more interesting perspective would be to bring some of the movie superheroes into the Netflix world. I think it would be way more interesting to see Iron Man or Spider-Man or Captain America come to the street level superheroes and really kind of get into character nuance, and really tell stories which more explore the characters. Doctor Strange is the obvious parallel, but I think Iron Fist is good just doing his own thing, he’s essentially kind of a loner.To be honest, I think Iron Fist and Luke Cage are the ultimate team-up. So far from filming the Defenders all the scenes with me and Mike [Colter] have been really solid and I think fans are going to be really excited when they see how our characters are brought to life together.They’re the Heroes For Hire and you’ll see the beginning of that formation in The Defenders.”
Danny Rand indeed does have more in common with Doctor Strange, than he does with any of the other Defenders. Spider-Man could definitely appear in these shows because of being in the same city as them.
Iron Fist and Luke Cage is the team up fans are most definitely waiting for. The Heroes for Hire is something fans are demanding.
