May 3rd Marvel dropped a pleasant surprise on all of us. It’s no secret that the Netflix division of Marvel has been building up for sometime now the Defenders with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. They finally show us some tidbits of the actual defenders now.
Based off the first few seconds it seems like it’s going to mostly have a the darker tone that we’re used to seeing in Daredevil. From the camera angles to the usage of the song “Smells like teen spirit” by Nirvana.
It kickstarts with Jessica Jones in trouble with the law being integrated by Misty Knight who we’ve seen in Luke Cage season one. With out of the blue Matthew Murdock aka Daredevil coming in to defend her as her lawyer. It seems like the way all of our beloved heroes meet is going to be very natural and not forced at all.
On the other hand the way Danny Rand on Luke Cage cross paths is going to be solely on Claire Temple. Even though she is the one thing connecting all four of our heros directly she did play more of an emotional role to some more than others. With that said it doesn’t seem like those two first encounter is going to be all happy and thrilling.
The aftermath of Daredevil season two and Iron Fist season one are going to play a huge role in the Defenders, because of how heavily they deal with the hand. They even show off Stick who helped Daredevil take on the hand. From the looks of it he might play a role of a mentor or a teacher for them all. They even show Elektra looking as badass as usual.
But the trailer doesn’t confirm that the hand will be the major villain at all. It does tell us that they will be fighting a huge underground criminal syndicate, and whoever they are fighting is something that is much bigger than they are. The Netflix Marvel as a usual tone of being darker than it’s TV and Movies, and it seems to be the same with this one too. The Defenders will launch globally on August 18th, 2017.
Did you really have any doubt this would happen? Fans of the show more than likely saw this coming from a mile away. It’s become without a doubt one of FX most successful shows.
In the ratings and with the critics this show is loved. With such a strong fanbase almost mirroring what HBO did for West World late last year. Similarly both of the two shows rely heavily on fan theories and complex narrative that require all of your attention. However Legion has a rich history of lore that can be digged up by picking up and reading one of its comics. The show follows a mutant by the name of David Haller who’s the son of Professor Xavier the leader of the X-Men, and how David is lead to believe he has schizophrenia. But soon realizes the voices in his head our powers and he must learn to channel them. It’s also important to add that this is the first show that Fox and Marvel have teamed up in.
Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television said in a statement that he is proud of where the show is headed. As well as what Marvel and FX have accomplished. This isn’t the only show that Marvel and Fox have teamed up on, there working on another one directly connected with the X-Men universe as well. It follows the story of a parent and two young mutants on the run from an dangerous government with intentions to harm them.
One of the main problems that Legion tends to have is the editing for the story. Many people throughout the show many people find themselves confused on the pacing of it. Noah Hawley is being accused of of sacrificing substance for style. But he has confirmed that the plot will be better understood by the end of the season.
Legion airs every wednesday nights at 10 p.m
