‘The Defenders’ adds another Marvel superhero

Just days after Marvel’s Luke Cage debuted on Netflix, another superhero has been added to the upcoming series The Defenders, according to The Wrap.

During an interview with the site, Simone Missick confirmed her character Misty Knight would reappear in the team-up show.

“I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on The Defenders. Spoiler alert. If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on the The Defenders, until I got fired.”

In Luke Cage, Misty Knight is a NYPD detective who crosses paths with Cage during an investigation. In the comics, she gets an bionic arm, courtesy of Tony Stark, and gains superhero strength.

Luke Cage (Mike Coulter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) will also reprise their roles for the new show. They will be joined by Iron Fist (Finn Jones), who is getting a solo series.

Other supporting characters from various Marvel shows are also expected to resurface, including Trish Walker (Jessica Jones), Foggy Nelson (Daredevil) and Frank Castle (The Punisher).

The Defenders is expected to start filming this year.
