The Defenders has wrapped filming, but some set photos are still making their way online. Even with the first teaser being released by Netflix recently, we haven't really seen any photos featuring Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in the full Daredevil costume. Until now that is. A handful of new images show everyone's favorite blind superhero suited up and ready for action, but in a pretty odd setting.
These new Defenders set photos come courtesy of the Marvel Netflix Thailand Twitter account and in them, we get to see Daredevil in the costume we've become quite familiar with. Though, in both Daredevil season 1 and 2, we typically see him in the dead of night or in poorly lit hallways. In these photos, we see the hero hanging out in a very well lit lobby that looks like it might be a hotel. This is definitely different than what we are used to seeing, but that is probably a good thing. It could mean we'll be seeing Matt Murdock doing some things we're not used to seeing him do in The Defenders, which will be nice.
Now that Iron Fist has been released, The Defenders is the next big thing to really look forward to. This series is going to be the culmination of all of the solo Marvel shows that Netflix has produced. It will essentially be The Avengers of this Netflix corner of the Marvel Universe. Iron Fist wasn't met positively by critics, but the show was embraced by fans, much like Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage before it. That puts a lot of pressure on Netflix to deliver with The Defenders, but there is no reason to think they will drop the ball here.
Details on The Defenders have been pretty minimal so far, but Netflix recently released the first teaser trailer for the series, which did not feature Daredevil in the costume. The four central heroes were all crammed into an elevator heading to an unknown destination, but we can guess that they are on their way to teach some bad guys a lesson. Even though nobody speaks in the teaser, it is pretty cool to see all of these characters who protect Hell's Kitchen assembled together. But it also finally revealed that The Defenders is going to hit the streaming platform in August.
It was recently revealed by Charlie Cox that Daredevil season 3 is going to start filming later this year, so we can bet on seeing a whole lot more of him in the suit in the future. The Defenders cast includes Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Eka Darville as Malcolm, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Scott Glenn as Stick, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Elodie Yung as Elektra, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Sigourney Weaver as the villain Alexandra. The Defenders arrives on Netflix on August 18. 2017. Be sure to check out the new Defenders set photos for yourself below.
