Marvel’s Netflix heroes are finally coming together when The Defenders airs tomorrow, and a lot of hardcore Marvel fans are gearing up for the release. Thanks to ScreenCrush, however, you don’t have to sit through five seasons of Marvel Netflix just to get caught up. Here’s the entire Netflix MCU in 9 minutes:
Though the Marvel Netflix lineup is considered to be far superior from the Marvel shows at ABC, some fans have admitted that the shows do tend to drag at some points. Sure Daredevil has some amazing action, but I found myself getting annoyed when they kept wanting to explore the Matt/Elektra relationship when the Punisher’s storyline was so much more exciting. Not to mention Luke Cage and Iron Fist fell short compared to the other Defenders’ solo series.
For now, my favorite series is probably Jessica Jones. Sure it’s not as action-heavy as the rest, but the story certainly is the most mature, and you have to love how terrifyingly rotten David Tennant is when he plays the mind-controlling Kilgrave. Who knew having the power to tell everyone to do what you want could be so scary?
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
The Defenders hits Netflix tomorrow.
