Colleen Wing is an archaeologist in addition to a martial artist and she holds a respectable enough day job that that wouldn't ever kill anyone even in self-defense because her reputation would never recover. Misty Knight is willing to use lethal force but only as a last resort. If she's explicitly ordered to not kill somebody, she won't.

Punisher is the loose cannon here. He'd be willing to oppose the Defenders to kill Elektra and fight on his own side. The Hand would be the main antagonists but Punisher would function as a secondary antagonist.
Colleen's a dojo owner in this show, and she's killed before in the comics. I think it's more of a last resort thing with her there too, but it's not like she hasn't.

That Mephisto rumor was fake.

Any rumor that ties into a variation on "Netflix Ghost Rider"? Assume its just that: a rumor. Because until and unless there is hard evidence otherwise, its safe to assume that there will not be a Ghost Rider show on Netflix. The budget would just plain be too much.

The same site claimed Fisk was totally gonna be on Homecoming even when the actor said its not happening. I'm very wary of them to begin with.

So I guess it's settled to be the Hand now. But who will lead the Hand? Fisk? Elektra? Nobu(remember, death doesn't exist)?

Elektra is the obvious choice because of where things were left in DD S2, but I would rather she be working under someone as a brainwashed individual fighting as a general in their legion, but not be the big bad herself. Maybe Gorgon, could be their leader as he was through some of the comics. If they did Gorgon it would be a nice way to tie the movies to the TV series even more due to his leadership in both the Hand and Hydra through the years, and they could change him from being mutant to being Inhuman to tie it closer to Agents of Shield. Just my thoughts though.

I was kind of hoping for someone other than the Hand, for variety. Still be cool to see them take on an army of ninjas

It'll definitely be Elektra as the Black Sky, possible possessed by the beast.

We haven't seen the powers of the Black Sky yet. I am really curious to what powers Elektra will have.

Probably some greatly enhanced strength that's for sure. Enough that Cage won't be ableto punch his way out of it. And she might even be able to hurt his so called unbreakable skin.

I suspect she will have a package of enhanced physical stats, plus general regenerative unkillability, plus the ability to do broader feats of thematically-appropriate magic. The lattermost being generally for stuff outside combat, or for setting the stage for battle, rather than something used in combat directly ( ie, not so much with the throwing energy blasts at foes ).

Basically, Black Sky-Elektra will be someone the Defenders can only directly fight if they work together, and who can make it damn hard for them to even get that direct fight. To win, the Defenders have to overcome a set of mystically-induced challenges ( army of auto-resurrecting ninjas, mystic visions of your own darkest fears, etc ), then fight her directly as a team working together, then take advantage of particular effort and trickery in order to exorcise the Beast ( or whatever ). They can't break the control of the Beast if they can't fight her into at least a stalemate first, and they can't fight her to a stalemate unless they can get to her.

It's the being the Hand worships to in the comics. It's what people have been assuming is actually The Black Sky but we could be wrong.

Or rather, that the Black Sky is a potential host for the Beast.

You know did we ever really learn the purpose of why The Hand was digging a big hole in the ground in the middle of New York?

Just more mysterious ninja shenanigans.

We will probably find out when the hand shows up next (either Daredevil or Defenders)

I hope it's addressed in Defenders. Pretty clear it's the Hand based on the teaser and the voice-over by Stick. Whether that means they are fighting Elektra or whoever...

Too bad they can't use Gorgon. He'd be a good stand-in villain to lead the Hand, at least better than Nobu. I mean I'm not even sure they can't use Gorgon, but I'm assuming they can't since he's a Mutant character and he debuted in the Wolverine comics.

My theory was that MAYBE the hole was dug because they were trying to unearth the sarcophagus that houses the Black Sky (Elektra). Maybe the Sarcophagus holds power, maybe it was buried there and they were trying to dig it up.

I don't think they dug such a big hole for the tomb/sarcophagus. I believe something might come from it. I believe the hole will be part of the Defenders miniseries. Something big might come from it.

Too bad they can't use Gorgan but there are a number of cool Hand members they could use that they have the rights for if they want to up their game as foes of the Defenders.

Black Tarantula
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Tarantula

Ghostmaker
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Maker

Kirigi
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirigi

Junzo Muto

Black Lotus

Plus any of the The Hand sub-factions like the Snakeroot Clan, Dragonfly True Believers and The Nail.
