They should and easily can add Hellcat in the future, given her character is in Jessica Jones.

Daredevil has some of the most amazing fight choreography in the TV/Movie industry. Especially Season 2 with one long fight scene taking up 5 minutes of the show.

The characters they are focusing on don't need huge Thor or Iron Man special effects. Plus first season of Jessica Jones had to really establish the premise of the character background with Purple Man and why she's such a flawed character. Jessica Jones was great. Did you even read up about the character before expecting it to be like the movies?

These are the Defenders? In what Marvel Universe? The only one of the characters of these 4 that were ever part of the Defenders team was Iron Fist. To me it seems like they are throwing crap at the wall hoping it sticks. So far Netflix has done a pretty good job with Daredevil and Jones by keeping a fairly honest depiction of the characters and the worlds (albeit a few liberties, but nothing drastic). However, it seems here they are creating a MC story line that never existed. Where is Namor, Dr. Strange, Hulk (heck Red Hulk or even Hulks daughter), Gargoyle, Nighthawk, Hellcat, the Beast, Silver Surfer, Misty Knight, Valkyrie, Ant-man, Iceman, She Hulk, Wolverine along with a slew of others throughout the years. But, definitely (to my diminishing recollection) never Daredevil, Jessica Jones or Cage were ever part a of any Defenders comic series I remember.

Netflix is killing it with their Marvel series'. I'm starting to look forward to these more than the MCU films.

Does Luke Cage series come out before Defenders? I honestly know nothing about Iron Fist at all.

@Phazevariance:I really enjoyed the series that Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction did in 2007. Think there was 3 volumes? I've also heard good things about the current ongoing Power Man and Iron Fist series.

@Phazevariance: yea, Luke Cage comes out Sept 30. Defenders won't air until next year sometime. You should go back and read some of the Iron Fist comics (if you're into that sort of thing). It's usually pretty great.

I loved both Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Absolutely amazing shows.

I love the marvel movies but I can't stand the marvel TV shows. It's all about the actors and "special effects". Unfortunately the tv shows just don't have the budget.

I'll remain optimistic, but my expectations are very low.

@dashaka:I somewhat agree, but only if you're going into the TV shows expecting it to have the same kind of production as the tentpole films. The shows primarily have little to do with "superpowers" anyway and are more about the realistic aspects of living (within reason of course). Also, if you're looking for a Marvel TV show that has a bunch of special effects, look no further than Marvel's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. They really stepped it up in the second and third seasons.

@dashaka: Have you watched Daredevil or Jessica Jones? There's almost no special effects and they are some of the best TV shows around. I would agree with you for the Marvel shows not on Netflix, but Netflix has done a great job with these shows.

@MrFreehuggs: Jessica Jones wasn't for me, but I will check out daredevil, thanks for the recommendation!
