Marvel's The Defenders: Where does Daredevil go from here?

With her costume work appearing on all the Marvel Netflix series, Maslansky is in a unique position to understand the thinking behind Luke Cage's hoodie and Jessica Jones' leather jacket. Jessica Henwick in particular stood out as Colleen Wing got a fair amount more development than what she received in most of Iron Fist, having been confronted by the fact she was a willing member of The Hand (even if she was manipulated by Bakuto about their true intentions) and questioned her worth.

It's very clear that Luke and Danny will be teaming up more in the future and I'm looking forward to the Heroes For Hire getting more screen time with each other.

At the start of The Defenders, Luke is in jail, but don't worry: he gets out instantly and returns home to his neighborhood, where he hooks back up with Rosario Dawson's ever-present nurse Claire Temple. The show is plodding, poorly acted, and has absolutely abysmal fight scenes, supposedly the result of a rushed and tumultuous filming schedule that really should have been better planned. If "The Punisher" doesn't have a scene of him running down a hallway while shooting a ton of people, I'll be completely shocked. The show would have done better to use Elektra as the primary antagonist throughout, rather than a glorified weapon. The first one that comes to mind for me is the scene where Matt and Foggy meet at their favorite bar and the camera is behind the bottles.

Some may argue that the dramatic decline in quality began elsewhere with Netflix's endeavors, but regardless of the variable that is personal opinion, there are specific qualities in "Iron Fist" that were missing when compared with the other, more successful entries in the lineup.

"It will. And look, I'm not the writer for this show, nor am I the executive producer".

Yes, it did, but not really a cliffhanger for more Defenders, per se. She is a hard-as-nails character, and the success of the show spoke volumes about the ability for women superheroes/action stars to carry their franchises. I hope they were permanent. From here on, I'm going to assume that you've seen the series as I really am not motivated to spend a thousand or two words explaining what The Hand is, or how Karen Page, fighting young columnist for a NY daily is at the epicenter of the biggest story in modern times and for whatever reason doesn't file any copy. I get it, Marvel, The Hand is a big, scary organization filled with spooky ninjas. And they are, but only in the comics. Later, as the group interrogates Sowande about what the Hand is planning to do, there are multiple moments where Matt purposefully avoids mentioning his history with Elektra, that he knows she's the Black Sky, and what that means for all of them.

Yung says that they filmed the scene in one take, with her putting things in her ears and staying under the fake blood for three or four seconds before a tap on the sarcophagus told her to come up.

Eventually though in "Guardian Angel", an arc penned by Kevin Smith (yes, that Kevin Smith), Maggie would admit to Matt who she was. But 1% of the time, and I know I'm not the only person that feels this way because I know a lot of the actors and crew feel this way, we can't believe what we're able to do.

Now, with that being said, I loved that Gao was immediately put in her place by the actual main villain, Alexandra, who is played by Sigourney Weaver.

Similarly, we got to spend a little more time with the bad guys as well.

Speaking of which, the fifth finger of the Hand was indeed confirmed as Bakuto, the villain from Iron Fist. In other words, with the exception of one person, The Defenders don't dress like your traditional superhero.

Since obediently binge-watching all eight episodes of Marvel's ensemble mini-series The Defenders on Friday, I've been trying to figure out why it felt so hollow.
