The Defenders is shaping up to be not only a team up series for the Netflix corner of the MCU, but one that will showcase most of the supporting cast from the rest of the Netflix shows as well.
Just yesterday it was announced that Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) and Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse) would be joining the cast and today it has been officially announced that another three supporting cast members will be making an appearance as well.
Coming as no great surprise we will see Scott Glenn reprise his role as Stick, who narrated the first teaser for the series. Also joining is fan favorite and Night Nurse herself, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. Lastly, and a bit unexpectedly, the series will see Rachael Taylor will return as Trish Walker, the best friend and adoptive sister of heroine Jessica Jones.
Little is known about the plot of ‘The Defenders’ at this point. All we know is that it will see the street level heroes of the MCU put their resources together as they team up to take on a villainous Sigourney Weaver who’s character is still unknown.
The Defenders hits Netflix sometime in 2017.
