The Defenders Adds New Names to Its Cast
The Defenders cast list just keeps growing. Netflix and Marvel's massive crossover event, which will feature the team-up of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist doing battle against Sigourney Weaver's unnamed villain, has just added two more names to its already impressive lineup of characters.

The Defenders' official Twitter account announced on Monday that Deborah Ann Woll will reprise her Daredevil (and future The Punisher) character Karen Page for the series, and Luke Cage star Simone Missick will also return as badass cop Misty Knight.

Also rumored to be joining the cast are Eka Darville (Malcolm on Jessica Jones) and Elden Henson (Daredevil's Foggy Nelson). Both actors have stated that they will be on the show, but neither has been confirmed by Marvel. 

The Defenders is scheduled to start filming in the coming weeks, with a release date sometime next year.
