Here's what that 'Defenders' ending means for Marvel's other Netflix shows

Male superheroes outnumber female superheroes, but Marco Ramirez is helping tip those scales by bringing to life some pretty powerful women as the showrunner for the latest Netflix and Marvel collaboration, "The Defenders". To mark the release of the brand-new series, the official Twitter accounts from Iron Fist, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage have lit up like Christmas trees, and they are downright sassy. We're talking Hell's Kitchen for Daredevil and Harlem for Luke Cage, it's all about New York City. Jessica has the most intense internal conflict of anyone in the group, and while the other heroes are easily convinced to work together to stop the Hand, she's adamantly opposed to fighting a war that she's ill-equipped for.

All the aforementioned Defenders: Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and the most recent addition to the catalogue, Iron Fist (Finn Jones).

Now only viewable as a post-credits scene after the finale of the newly-released Defenders series, the trailer includes a montage of images from what appear to be Frank Castle's tragic former life, as he pounds his own logo into a concrete floor with a sledgehammer.

Jones (previously Ser Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones) talked to SYFY WIRE about the evolution of Danny Rand, the extreme fight choreograph in The Defenders, and what it means to be a street-level superhero.

To sort through the episode, we have broken it down by character. These are four characters in search of not just a cast, but an entire play.

Of course, when they meet up they won't get along. I'm now on episode 7, but even without giving away spoilers, Claire has been struggling with understanding what her role in the larger Defenders universe is. It was wonderful to have her come on board. (When she has to repeat their name later, she makes her mocking tone very clear.) When Danny announces he's the "sworn protector of K'un-Lun", Jessica asks if he's on lithium. This insight works nicely alongside Coleen's breakdown in front of Claire, with her revealing what it's like to grow up within the cult of The Hand. Bad move, Stick. She eventually returns, but only because she found something shady going on from The Hand.

Good character, very dynamic. "People have a lot of influence and money and they are just out of touch", he says. "I just came to say, I'm really, really glad it wasn't you", he adds. Am I reading too much into this? It's a fine superhero adventure even if you don't know all the characters. Here, The Defenders is an eight episode event, which means less fluff. Still, despite the easing up on references there are still a few fun things of note that we get during the episode. Up until now he's found it quite hard to find his place in the world and make sense of the responsibilities that he has. I can't give anything away, but we are really excited about this upcoming season.

This show's a celebration. It's a slow start but a welcome one, as we're eased back into the world of the individual characters. Instead, it comes across as absurd - possibly because every other character in the series acts equally as stupid.

"When you have literally the footprints that The Avengers had, there's kind of no way to avoid the comparison and no way to avoid referencing it in the writers room".
