Marvel Confirms Three Familiar Faces Will Be Back for Defenders
The Defenders has started filming! Huzzah!

By this point, The Defenders is going to have more crossover characters than The Avengers: Infinity War: we've got Luke Cage, Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones, plus Karen Page, Misty Knight, and probably the Punisher (we know Jones and Knight don't get along, judging by some recent set photos). Today, we got confirmation that three more characters will make it onto the roster: Foggy Nelson (played by Elden Henson), Jeri Hogarth (played by Carrie-Anne Moss) and Malcolm Ducasse (played by Eka Darville). Check out the little promo spot that came out on Twitter today:



So we're getting Matt Murdock's best pal back, the no-nonsense leader of Hogarth, Chao, and Benowitz, and...Malcolm? We're guessing there's peanut-butter involved in the upcoming plot. One of the great things about Netflix's Marvel series is that the heroes' lives are intertwined with normal people like these—it makes things a lot more real and grounded. Fans still want to know if Trish, Colleen, and Hellcat are going to return, but we'll just have to wait and see. 

In fact, it sounds like we'll have to wait until 2018 before we see any solo Jessica Jones or Daredevil action, but Luke Cage is already out and Iron Fist is set for early 2017. It's not clear when The Defenders will be released, but we know it'll be 2017. Who will the team be up against? The Kingpin? We know Electra is likely, but what about Black Mamba or Bullseye? We're looking forward to seeing Iron Fist in his own series first, especially since the team could always use some more kung-fu. Then again, any superhero team could always use more kung-fu.
 
Luke Cage Season 1 is available now on Netflix. Iron Fist Season 1 is slated to release March 17, 2017. The Defenders is set to release in 2017. Daredevil and Jessica Jones Season 2 are expected in 2018.
