The Defenders – August 18th

The next part of Marvel’s expanded universe of movies and series’ is coming to Netflix this coming week when the 8 part series The Defenders is released on August 18th.

Like with the movies that set the example, the series builds on the four earlier series that were each introductions for the gathered heroes: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

In the new series, The Defenders, the four heroes and their friends are pulled together in a fight for New York that was heavily foreshadowed in Daredevil and Iron Fist. While the four shows are all precursors to The Defenders, it has been said that the series was made with the intention that even those who have not seen all, or any, of the previous shows will enjoy the series. The first episode and part of the second reintroduce the lead heroes to the viewer before the four come together to form The Defenders in the second episode of the series, giving everyone the chance to either get to know the heroes or spend a little time with old friends before the new team dynamics are introduced.

If you have considered watching the Netflix series’ Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist, this week would be a great time for a binge session. (In that recommended viewing order for best story line continuity.) If only two could be watched, then the two that seem to build the strongest toward the new series are Daredevil (mainly season 2) and Iron Fist.
