Production has officially begun on Marvel’s The Defenders and worlds are already colliding as the first set photos have arrived featuring Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones meeting with Simone Missick as Misty Knight! Check them out in the gallery below!
The Marvel series also stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand. In addition, Deborah Ann Woll will reprise her role of Karen Page and it has 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 culminating mini-series event. The eight-episode series will premiere in 2017 along with Marvel’s Iron Fist and Marvel’s The Punisher.
