Everybody was kung fu fighting! Well they will be in what will surely be a kick-ass introduction to the MCU for Marvel’s resident Kung Fu master, Danny Rand. Expect shoalin shenanigans mixed with Dr Strange mysticism in one of the years most eagerly anticipated series.
Move over The Avengers as Marvel Studios unleashes The Defenders onto the small screen. Daredevil will team up with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to bring a more street level and grittier super team than its billionaire playboy financed cousins over in Avengers Tower. The chance to see Luke Cage a.k.a Power Man team up with Iron Fist will be worth the Netflix subscription fee itself.
