Deborah Ann Woll confirmed to appear in Marvel’s The Defenders
Marvel Entertainment has confirmed two more cast members for the upcoming Marvel’s The Defenders, including the previously-revealed Simone Missick as Misty Knight but also Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page. Woll is currently reprising her role in Marvel’s The Punisher as well.
The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand. It has also been hinted that Jon Bernthal’s The Punisher will return for the series as well, but that remains unconfirmed. It was recently announced that Academy Award and Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner Sigourney Weaver will join the cast as the villain for the series, though who she will torment the heroes as remains to be seen.
Marvel’s Daredevil showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie serve as showrunners and executive producers along with Drew Goddard, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Director S.J. Clarkson (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Dexter) will direct the first two episodes of the culinating mini-series event. The eight-episode series will premiere in 2017 along with Marvel’s Iron Fist and Marvel’s The Punisher.
