In other Marvel TV news, Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Season 2 of Marvel’s Iron Fist. will be changing up the creative end by replacing Season 1 showrunner Scott Buck (Dexter) with Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow, Falling Skies). Although Season 1 has its defenders, it got by far the worst critical reception of any of the Netflix Marvel shows. Hopefully Metzner can right the ship going forward.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
The series also stars Academy Award-nominated actress Sigourney Weaver as the antagonist, simply named Alexandra, and features the return of Elodie Yung as Elektra, Scott Glenn as Stick, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, with Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.
