While he asserted that it's still in the early stages, Quesada spoke a little bit about the final series, which will join Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage to complete the Defenders team. Eventually, after all four shows have aired, Netflix will release a series combining the four (to be titled The Defenders) that sees these Marvel heroes fighting crime together in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York.
Until then, Quesada let us in on a few details about Iron Fist, a martial arts fighter who also goes by Danny Rand. "I think the Danny Rand character himself will have a different perspective on the world than some of the characters that you’re seeing now — as will Luke Cage. I mean you guys haven’t seen that show yet, either."
It's the first major news we've gotten on the show since it was announced last month that English actor Finn Jones, best known for his work on Game of Thrones, will be playing the titular character. Quesada also revealed a little bit more about the show and the eventual plan to merge all four of the Netflix series together:
Our goal is to provide four different shows that each have their own feel while, again, feeling like they are a part of a whole,” he continued. “It’s still the early stages of Iron Fist, so I’m a little hesitant to say too much more than that. But Danny Rand is a completely different character, and the world that he comes from, how he obtained his powers and his skills — all completely different. I think fans will be pleased.
Netflix will air Daredevil's second season on Mar. 18 and Luke Cage's first in September. A second season of Jessica Jones was recently announced as well. There's no word, however, on when we'll be getting Iron Fist.
