Marvel is expanding its television presence in a big way over the next year or so. The comic book company is launching a slew of new TV series over the coming months, including the highly anticipated Punisher spinoff and its first ever comedy, New Warriors. Having trouble deciding which series to watch? Here’s your official guide to all of Marvel’s new upcoming shows.
1. The Defenders, Aug. 18
All four of Netflix’s street-level Marvel heroes — Daredevil (played by Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) — will join forces in this team-up series. The miniseries event will follow as the group of heroes is brought together to face their biggest threat yet.
Sigourney Weaver will co-star in a still-unidentified villainous role in the anticipated series, while several Marvel veterans will reprise their roles, including Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Deborah Ann Will as Karen Page, Carrie-Ann Moss as Jeryn Hogarth, and Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker.
