The biggest news from the world of Marvel on Netflix during this year's San Diego Comic-Con was obviously the teaser for Luke Cage, who kicked all of the ass to Ol' Dirty Bastard's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya." While we still have about two months before that series drops (Sept. 30 for those who need to mark their calendars), it's not the ONLY series we have to look forward to.
There was no word on when we'll get more Jessica Jones, nor do we know when Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle will re-emerge as The Punisher in his own series, but we have a few more pieces of the puzzle when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix, including our first taste of what we can expect from the superhero team-up series The Defenders.
In case you've been out of the loop, here's a quick look at everything Marvel and Netflix shared during this year's Comic-Con.
'Daredevil' is getting a third season
Back in March, Daredevil star Charlie Cox was sharing what he thought could become of a third season of the brutal Netflix series (spoiler alert: he REALLY Wants to see Bullseye make an appearance). Mind you, this was before word of a third season was even confirmed. Today, we're one step closer as Netflix has officially announced that season three of the series will be "coming soon." Given that they already have Luke Cage set to premiere this September, as well as the second season of Jessica Jones, the debut of Iron Fist AND the release of The Defenders to plot out, there's no telling when we'll actually get to see more of the Devil of Hell's Kitchen in his solo series.
'The Defenders' will be released in 2017
For those who are unaware, The Defenders will find the four Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage) aligned as one ass-kicking quartet. While there's next to no information on what would force these superpowered beings to become a team, one has to assume we'll at the very least get one season from each individual hero, so you might have to wait until Iron Fist drops before getting ultra hype about The Defenders. For the time being, enjoy this Nirvana-soundtracked teaser.
Our first glimpse of 'Iron Fist'
It's been a while since we got any new information on Iron Fist, the Netflix series based on a rich af kung fu master who's down with the homey Luke Cage. Back in March, it was learned that Iron Fist (real name: Danny Rand, who is played by Game of Thrones' Finn Jones), would be making his debut appearance in the first season of Luke Cage, but today is the first time that we got to see the Iron Fist in action.
It looks like this will include a proper origin story, including Danny being involved in some kind of accident that has him being found by a pair of monks, ultimately returning to the city (barefoot), ready to kick some ass. No release date aside from Netflix saying it'll be "coming soon."
