When The Defenders hits Netflix in August, not only will we see the four heroes come together, but we will also see the two members of Heroes for Hire, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, interact for the first time as well. This has been the most anticipated aspect of the series for some, and recently at Comicpalooza in Houston, Mike Colter and Finn Jones spoke about their on-screen dynamic.
MIKE: We’re gonna start a fundraiser for Heroes for Hire (laughs)
FINN: It’s really interesting how we meet the first time. Without spoiling too much, at first we don’t see eye to eye. We come from very different backgrounds. And we kind of question each other’s ethics especially Luke to Danny. Danny is super hot-headed. Always the first to jump the gun and be very reckless. And Luke is kind of there to settle me down a little bit. So I kind of see Luke as the coach to Danny.
MIKE: I think the scenes with Danny and Luke are some of the best scenes we have in the series. You’ve seen the trailer so you’ve seen the fist in my face. There’s some cool stuff in there. It’s a good dynamic.
FINN: And they’ve done it right. They don’t just jump right into it. It’s a slow burn, a slow build. And you understand where these characters and these worlds are coming from so when they collide, it feels very real. It feels very relevant. And I really hope we see a Heroes For Hire.
MIKE: They’re making it in 2027 (laughs)
It will be interesting to see the relationship between the two grow from butting heads into more of a partnership. Perhaps if their chemistry is well-received by fans we could see a Heroes for Hire show some time down the road. For now, be sure to stay tuned for updates on all things Defenders!
