The Defenders may see another reunion.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb recently sat down with EW and dropped some gems on us. Loeb has been overseeing the expansion of the television shows that exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. On a side note, the second season of Iron Fist touched down this month, and it's improved greatly from the first season. The four Netflix Marvel heroes teamed up to create The Defenders, a mini-series that came and went last Summer. Now that each story is done building up to the meeting of the heroes, Loeb explains where the vision for the future lies.
When asked if The Defenders series was a one-off show, Loeb answered, "No, all we’ve ever said is that there are no plans right now [to do more]. It doesn’t mean that it’s off the table. And it doesn’t mean that it even has to be with the original characters that were in the first Defenders." It would be interesting to see the show bring in The Punisher or Moon Knight as characters on a new Defenders team, but only time will tell. When pressed further on what he meant by his statement, Loeb reminded everyone of the Avengers' deep roster.
"There are lots of Avengers, and through that, you should be able to ascertain that there may be lots of Defenders," he stated. "No one at any time referred to them as 'The Defenders' — they didn’t wear a little 'D' on their belts, and they didn’t go to a building that had a big 'Defenders' [sign] in the air. They were four mismatched heroes who were joined by a lot of the other heroes that are in the stories that we do on Netflix, but that was that particular story.
