This year, The Defenders will bring together Netflix’s four main Marvel heroes: Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). We also know that Elektra (Elodie Yung) will serve as a series regular on the anticipated team-up series. But what other familiar faces are set to appear on the upcoming show? Here are eight favorite supporting characters that will show up in The Defenders:
1. Misty Knight
Simone Missick is set to reprise her role of Misty Knight from Luke Cage. The no-nonsense Harlem police detective proved to be a valuable ally to Luke in the freshman season of the series — and it looks like she’s not done helping him out yet. In September, Missick confirmed that the character will also be appearing in the upcoming superhero mashup, likely lending a hand to the bulletproof hero as he teams up with his fellow Defenders to take down the new big bad.
