Fans will see something new and exciting when Netflix features The Defenders. Fans will get to experience something they have never done before as they watch 4 of their favorite street heroes come together in New York City to keep streets safe. Fans will learn more about each character as they work together in and out of character. This will include the newest comic book character Misty Knight (Luke Cage). In short, this spinoff is more than just ass-kicking characters with mighty super strength.
Actress Simone Missick let fans in on the addition of her character Harlem detective Misty Knight being included in The Defenders flick. Missick joked about leaking the details since it is far in advance of the movie’s release. Of course, here’s hoping she doesn’t get in trouble for sharing the exciting news early.
When discussing the role with The Wrap she stated she felt she was in a safe place to mention her character is part of the superhero lineup. In other words: spoiler alert! She says if she gets fired because of the interview she’s sorry, claiming she’s supposed to be in the flick until she got fired (lol).
It is said the character Misty Knight will escape from Luke Cage and enter into reality. She will use the fourth wall and break anyone’s head who may try to stop or prevent her to The Defenders. Simone Missick has been noted as a great asset to Luke Cage through other reviews. Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramiez knew what they were doing when they decided to import her character from the musical-inspire drama. Fans could see her in 2017 for season 3 of Daredevil. Hopefully, some sense can be knocked into Matt?
It is unclear what Missick’s appearance will bring to The Defenders but it is something fans can speculate. The city will see a great amount of destruction and trouble with these four protagonists, no doubt. It is difficult to say if the police will be involved and what they are able to do. In saying so, they may as well bring one of the top super sleuths if they expect to get anything done. Misty Knight can handle practically anything thing that gets thrown at her. In short, she’s as tough as they come.
Netflix will feature a slew of MCU actors part of the spinoff miniseries. Aside from Simone Missick, characters featured in the series Daredevil will also be a part of the action. These include Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson), and Stick (Scott Glenn). Other characters to be on the lookout for include Malcolm Ducasse (Eika Darville) from Jessica Jones and Jari Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) character seen on Daredevil, but will make an appearance on Iron Fist.
Unfortunately, fans will have to wait to catch all the action. The Defenders action flick is set to hit Netflix in 2017 after Iron Fist is released. In the meantime, fans can look for other shows including Marvel characters such as Misty Knight on Luke Cage now available for streaming on Netflix.
