I guess there is a chance we will see The Defenders again after all, but it may not be the team that Netflix initially introduced us to last summer.
In an interview with EW, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb clarified that though there are no current plans in place for a second season of The Defenders, that doesn’t mean there won’t ever be one:
“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.”
When EW pressed Loeb for more on what he meant on using different characters, he offered this explanation:
“There are lots of Avengers, and through that, you should be able to ascertain that there may be lots of Defenders. 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.”
Interesting, I wonder who down the line may leave or join the team.
At least now there is hope for another giant Netflix crossover, hopefully one that will be better received than the first go-around.
