All we previously knew about Marvel’s most recently announced Netflix series, The Defenders, is that it will bring together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. We also know that Sigourney weaver will be the villain of the show and that the first season, containing 8 episodes, will be available to stream next year.
Well now the official The Defenders twitter account has revealed that Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Karen Page in Daredevil and Simone Missick, who plays Misty Knight in Luke Cage, will be appearing in The Defenders. Check out the video below…

It’s not very surprising to here that two of the main cast members in Daredevil and Luke Cage will be appearing in the show but it’s nice to get confirmation. It was also recently revealed via set photos that Deborah Ann Woll will be appearing in The Punisher Netflix series starring Jon Bernthal. No word yet on how big of a role she or Simone Missick will play in the series but given their relationships with the main characters, they will probably appear in all 8 episodes in the first season. It’s also highly likely that other supporting roles such as Rosario Dawson, who plays the nurse Claire Dawson, and Elden Henson, who plays Foggy Nelson will appear in the show but nothing has been confirmed yet.
The Defenders will be available to stream on Netflix in 2017 but no specific date has been announced yet.
