According to Daredevil star Charlie Cox, we’re closer to the debut of Netflix’s Marvel superhero series The Defenders than we thought.
While doing press for Netflix in Paris on Monday, Cox revealed that the highly anticipated team-up will begin shooting this year. He shared the news after being asked about whether or not fans could expect a third season of Daredevil, which, as of yet, has not been announced.
“What we do know is, at the end of this year, we’re going to be making The Defenders, and, of course, Daredevil is very much a part of that foursome,” the actor said.
Unsurprisingly, neither Netflix nor Marvel is commenting on a renewal, and little is being shared about the Defenders series. Still, we do know that it will somehow see Daredevil (Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and the newest Defender, Iron Fist (Finn Jones), all fighting side by side.
On his expectations for the small-screen superhero ensemble, Cox shared that he’s “very excited to see how those worlds combine and interested to see, tonally, how those shows become one.”
There has been no announcement regarding an official The Defenders premiere date. The same goes for the first season of Iron Fist, as well as Jessica Jones’ sophomore run. Fans can expect Luke Cage’s first season to premiere on Netflix Sept. 30.
