Sigourney Weaver Will Be the Villain in Marvel's THE DEFENDERS
Tonight at the Netflix and Marvel NYCC panel, Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, announced that Sigourney Weaver will be playing a “significant but unspecified” role in the upcoming team up series The Defenders. Or at least, Marvel’s official site is calling it unspecified, but everyone else on the planet is saying she will be the villain. I wasn’t in the room, but people who were say she was specifically announced as the villain, although no details about which villain were given.
Also at the panel, Jon Bernthal confirmed the news that Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page will be in The Punisher series currently shooting, and Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, and Finn Jones — or as you might know them, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — teamed up for the first time on stage.
Weaver is obviously an immensely talented actress who seems to have “Play a major character in every sci-fi or fantasy franchise in the world” on her bucket list. You just got one step closer, Sigourney.
Which villain do you think she’ll be playing?
