DAREDEVIL's Electra and IRON FIST's Colleen Wing Join Marvel's THE DEFENDERS
The cast of Marvel's The Defenders continues to grow with the addition of Elodie Yung, who will reprise the role of Elektra from the Daredevil series. It was also announced that Jessica Henwick will reprise her role as Colleen Wing from the upcoming first season of Iron Fist. Each one comes with an announcement video, and in Wing's video, we get to see some new footage of her in action.
The Defenders is currently shooting, and Yung and Henwick will join Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand. In addition, Elden Henson will be reprising as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Eka Darville as Malcolm, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Scott Glenn as Stick, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. There's also a good chance that we'll see Jon Bernthal’s The Punisher in the series as well.
The Defenders will run for eight episodes on Netflix, and Jessica Jones director S.J. Clarkson has been hired to direct the first two installments. The series will premiere sometime in 2017.
