Watch: All Easter Eggs And References From The Defenders

[THIS VIDEO CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE DEFENDERS SEASON ONE]

We’ve waited since the first season of Daredevil back in 2015, and now we finally have the first season of The Defenders. Like every other Marvel show and movie, the series is also chockfull of Easter Eggs and references from the comics, and Mr. Sunday Movies on Youtube has given us his full breakdown.

Like the cinematic universe, The Defenders marks the Marvel Netflix entry into phase two, and this could be referenced by the fact that, like phase 2, some key characters lose their hand/arm as a nod to The Empire Strikes Back. Stick cuts off his own hand, and Misty Knight loses most of her arm.

The series also hints that the partnership of Colleen Wing and Misty Knight at some point. Though I can’t really see them starring in their own series, I could definitely see one character crossing over to another’s solo series. Same goes for the partnership with Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

Like any other comic book movie, we also get confirmation that Daredevil is still alive, and it looks like the series is hinting toward the existence of his mother Maggie who is a nun in the comics. It may have been a cop out to have Matt live in the end, but I at least want a good explanation from the showrunners in the next season of Daredevil.

It’s also worth noting that the first trailer for The Punisher screens right after the credits.

 

Catch The Defenders on Netflix.
