According to Charlie Cox The Defenders starts shooting really soon

It's only been a month since the release of Daredevil season two and the Man Without Fear himself, Charlie Cox, is teasing the future of Hell's Kitchen's favorite vigilante. While he's still uncertain about a Daredevil season three, during a recent Netflix event (opens in new tab) in Paris Cox did drop a surprising bit of intel on another show: The Defenders.

As you may know, Marvel's TV universe plans to roll out four individual series - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist - before the quartet join forces for The Defenders (opens in new tab). The thing is, we don't know how many seasons of each individual series Marvel plans to release beforehand. With Luke Cage's first season due later this year, Iron Fist currently shooting, and a second season of Jessica Jones on the cards, it was widely assumed that we wouldn't see the foursome unite onscreen for a few years.

Apparently it may happen a lot sooner. "What we do know is at the end of this year we’re going to be making The Defenders," Cox told press, "and, of course, Daredevil is very much a part of that foursome."

As is often the case with Marvel matters, Cox remained cagey on the specifics of that superhero team-up. "I have no idea what the storyline is going to be for that show. I'm very excited to see how those worlds combine, and interested to see tonally how those shows become one."

But the big question is; might the show address some of the story threads left dangling at the end of Daredevil season two? I mean, that Elektra tease is just begging to be revisited, right? Again, he remained tight-lipped. "In terms of wrapping up any storylines, maybe they’ll do some of that in The Defenders. Or maybe they won’t.”

That's that sorted, then.
