Entertainment Weekly broke the news about the latest character to join Marvel Studios’ upcoming mini-series The Defenders!
For the last couple of weeks, Marvel’s production The Defenders has shown that they will be pulling from all of their Netflix shows for the marvelous crossover event. Aside from the obvious heroes who comprise the team, a boots-to-the-ground Avengers-style group, such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, they’ve also released that there’s going to be a strong emphasis on the supporting characters. With a tagline that simply reads “Those Who Surround Us, Define Us,” Marvel has made it clear that the supporting cast will be imperative to the story being told.
But there’s nothing overly great about characters like Malcolm, or Hogarth, showing up. They’re cool, and I’m sure in their own way will add something to the proceedings, but just a few minutes ago Entertainment Weekly has revealed to the entire world that another costumed crusader we’ve met in recent years is going to be a series regular in The Defenders. By word of EW, Elodie Yung’s Elektra will be the latest addition to the star-studded cast.
