The Defenders has officially wrapped! While fans are taking in the latest Marvel/Netflix show this weekend, the upcoming one is right on it’s heels. Thanks to a post on Instagram, we now know that production on the show has officially wrapped. Get pumped!
Makeup artist Sarit Klein posted photos from the wrap party confirming that production had finished. Production for the show had started in October soon after Sigourney Weaver’s inclusion had been announced. And with thanks to MCU Exchange, we know that production on these shows are typically 4 months. And predicting from previous schedules, July or August may be the release date. While nothing is confirmed, we at least have a better idea on when the show will be released. While there is no Defenders goodies to be had at the end of Iron Fist, we at least know we’re getting more very soon!
The Defenders see a team-up of New York based heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. They begrudgingly come together to form The Defenders. Writers have said that the show is more of a detour on these characters’ journeys. It won’t interfere with story lines already built in their own shows. Also noted is that the tone is entirely it’s own and the combining of the characters created “it’s own genre”.
