‘The Defenders’ Kicks Off Filming; First Set Photos Feature Jessica Jones And Misty Knight

Yes, that’s right: Marvel’s The Defenders, the team-up series of Netflix’s street-level heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, has officially started principal photography in New York City. As it will include these four key characters, it makes sense that we’ll also see supporting characters from the respective shows meet and interact with one another, which can be seen in the first bunch of set photos:

As we can see, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) won’t be off to a good start, but that’s almost certain to change later on. The Defenders is slated to debut in 2017, however, there’s no solid release date yet. It will star Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Sigourney Weaver as the main villain.
