The Defenders is what Marvel has been working toward with its Netflix properties, which operate within a shared universe but don't hop into the major MCU. Although we don't know how Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist align, The Defenders is a squad made up of the four of them, more than likely battling all kinds of evildoers within the Big Apple. With Netflix MCU favorites like Misty Knight and Claire Temple (among others) being included in this series, all hands will truly be on deck to tie everything together. It's on Marvel to make this eight-episode season (which should help in things not dragging) worth our while. At the very least, we can hope for some stunning fight scenes, right? —khal
