If you have Netflix you notice that their home screen you notice the countdown to the Defenders. The early reviews are literally 50/50. I have a few expectations and things I think we need to see for this to be a hit. The following will contain spoilers if you have not seen Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. !!!SPOILER ALERT!!! You have been warned.
What Happened to Ku’n Lun? At the end of Iron Fist, we find him and Colleen returning to Ku’n Lun. When they arrive they see that the gate to the city has been closed and there are several dead bodies along the path which consists of monks and members of THE HAND. If the gate to the city is closed that means that he will be on his own since according to the show it only opens every 15 years. I assume he will be an emotional wreck through half of the defenders because of this. How will he finish his training?
What is Madame Gao? At first, she just seemed like a savage crime boss when I first saw her Daredevil. But then she did this^^. In Iron Fist it’s revealed that she’s hundreds of years old. What her ultimate move, big plans? Since she has been seen in Daredevil too hopefully she plays an interesting part in the Defenders.
Sigourney Weaver is in the MCU!!! If you don’t know who this woman is. She is the OG (original gangster) when it comes to leading ladies kicking ass. It's pretty awesome to see her in a Marvel production especially as a villain from what I see in the trailers. I did look at the IMDB and her character is name Alexandria. I have no idea who that is. If you do let me know. Doesn’t seem like they are giving away too much about the character.
How did Luke cage get released? At the end of his first season Mariah and Shades won. There was no way they were giving up that evidence to free him? Maybe Claire and Murdock found a loophole, or maybe the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen got to them.
Can we get some good fight choreography from Iron Fist please?! Other than the really crappy plot of his first season what made it unbearable to watch was Finn Jones obvious lack of martial arts training and thanks to stuntman Mohamed J Ali interview ( which you can see here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6D77_Sm4eI ) he gave away the fact that they rushed his production. When you have someone with no martial arts background plus no time for teach choreography you get crap. KaijYT from youtube did a comparison video between Daredevil and Iron Fist and from what I see if Iron fist is gonna survive they might have to recast him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psc-WPMorJ4 . Are you ready for THE DEFENDERS ?!! There will be a review next week in the meantime I’m going to watch Luke Cage again.
