San Diego Comic-Con is well underway, and with its variety of themed panels has come a surprising reveal from Marvel and Netflix regarding their plans for 2017. While Luke Cage is set to hit streaming services in the coming months, it was the tease of his fellow Defenders that riled up West Coast cosplayers.
Here, the best highlights from Thursday's panel:
Who needs a car door-shield when your skin is indestructible? Mike Colter heads to Harlem for solo superhero outing following his introduction in Marvel's Jessica Jones, and by the looks of it, he's fully capable of cleaning up the streets on his own.
To no one's real surprise, Daredevil will see the New York light of day again, as The Man Without Fear will return for a 3rd season on Netflix.
Quick snippets of a teaser introduced by star Finn Jones gave us our first look at Marvel's Iron Fist. A clear origin story, the footage shows young Danny Rand rescued following a plane wreck before cutting to the streets of New York, where's he's older, barefoot, and breaking walls with his fist. You'll have to wait until 2017 to find out if he ever finds a pair of shoes.
The best and final clip came in the form of The Defenders, uniting Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist for an incredibly superpowered sizzle reel. While the footage only revealed a logo compiled off all four series names, a overlaid track of Nirvana's "Come As You Are" paused just in time to hear an utterance from fan favorite, Stick. "You think the four of you can save New York? You can't even save yourselves."
Marvel’s Luke Cage hits Netflix next on September 30, with Iron Fist and The Defenders set to debut sometime in 2017.
