The Defenders Wreck the Halls in Netflix Holiday Video
Everyone has their own unique way of celebrating the holiday season, and that includes the Marvel Netflix heroes who will make up The Defenders next year. Instead of "deck the halls,"Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter and Luke Cage) (Mike Colter) will "wreck the halls," in a catchy new holiday video. Don't expect them to be spreading much holiday cheer to their enemies this Christmas, but you may certainly cheer them on as they battle a number of enemies.
This video, which debuted on the official Twitter for Luke Cage, isn't just a play on words, replacing "deck" with "wreck," but serves as proof that these Marvel heroes really do enjoy wrecking the various halls of Hell's Kitchen. This video doesn't feature any new footage from any of these shows, and we don't get to see any footage of the fourth Defender, Iron Fist, wrecking any halls quite yet, since that series doesn't debut until March 17 on Netflix. Still, this video may give some fans the motivation to catch up with all three shows, which are even all represented in the "Wreck the Halls" logo.
The "Wreck" uses the same design as the Luke Cage logo, while the "the" uses the Jessica Jones font and "halls" represents the Daredevil logo. The streaming service will roll out Iron Fist on March 17, with The Defenders currently in production, and believed to debut later on in 2017. There will surely be more halls in need of wrecking in both Iron Fist and The Defenders, so perhaps we'll get a new holiday-themed video just like this a year from now, with all of these Defenders teaming up together to defeat Hell's Kitchen's enemies, while destroying its halls in the process.
The most recent set photos from The Defenders featured both Daredevil and Jessica Jones together, while others have featured Luke Cage reuniting with Night Nurse (Rosario Dawson). Other characters confirmed to return are Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Stick (Scott Glenn), Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), Misty Knight (Simone Missick), Jerilyn Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Malcolm Ducasse (Eka Darville). Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who previously served as Daredevil showrunners, have come aboard to serve as The Defenders showrunners. They will also serve as executive producers with Drew Goddard and Jeph Loeb.
While Marvel and Netflix haven't confirmed a premiere date for The Defenders yet, but this series has been confirmed to come before new seasons of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. After The Defenders debuts at some point next year, fans will be treated to Daredevil Season 3, Jessica Jones Season 2 and The Punisher spin-off, which is currently in production. It hasn't been confirmed if The Punisher will be seen in The Defenders or not, especially since both shows are currently in production. Take a look at this new video featuring three of the four Defenders "wrecking the halls" in Hell's Kitchen.
