Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist took to the stage to surprise the New York Comic Con audience by unveiling the latest addition to the cast.
In just two short years, Netflix’s Marvel shows have built strong female characters, from Jessica Jones herself to Elektra and Black Maria. So the first villain The Defenders face will be in good company and luckily a great actress has been cast…
That actress is Sigourney Weaver, who in the Alien franchise as Lieutenant Ripley kinda began strong female characters as we know them. We know she’s equally at home as heroine or villain as she played a bad-ass bitch in Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s Paul in which she also brilliantly aped her Aliens role.
It’s anyone’s guess as to which Marvel villainess she might be playing but guesses range from Viper (who’s ties to The Hand would tie in with Daredevil and Iron Fist) to Inhuman (and inhumane) Mafia leader Ma Gnucci.
I wonder if she’ll get to utter the infamous line to Jessica!
The show drops on Netflix in 2017 or 2018 and The Defenders will come at night. Mostly.
