    To be honest Jedi Arrow, I'm not sure the guys in charge of Defenders feel all that different. I've yet to see anything to convince me otherwise.

    Thing is, I'm not sure Defenders is the proper place to give Danny, Jessica, and Luke their costumes for the first time. That would be more suitable for their solo shows. So I don't see how the guys in charge of Defenders would be at fault for not giving them their costumes. They might want to leave that for the showrunners on the individual shows to do.

    Except in Danny's solo show, he never got a costume at all and the showrunner saw no reason to use it.

    No it won't. No offense. It'll probably perform in line with the previous series. Nothing is taking the crown from Fuller House.

    The Witcher will be Netflix's biggest show in history.

    Right. What I mean is, they may want to leave room for future seasons to introduce the costumes at their discretion. The individual shows should be the main driving factors in their respective characters' development.

    Supposedly the timeline of the show takes place over a handful of days.

    That's read sad.

    I would think House of Cards/Orange Is The New Black were the biggest after the Netflix shows.

    Apparently Danny is going to 'mature' in Defenders.

    I mean, when your own, terrible show can't do that, you can only go up from there.

    His statement doesn't sound all that meaningful.

    I just want him to get a costume.

    Less than 3 months to go. Feels like forever.

    do you guys think this will have a higher RT rating than the other series (I believe DD, JJ and LC all had 93-97%) or quite lesser?

    I think Marvel Television knows this show needs to meet expectations So I predict it will fall inline with DD season 2 in terms of critical performance.

    Well it is not as unique since we have seen team ups in movies and CW. I still think the show will get praised they just can't start off slow.

    The wait won't feel that long we have Spider-Man in July so that fills an MCU void for me.

    It says a lot that 8 episodes of The Defenders will redeem Danny in what 13 episodes of IF destroyed.

    Assuming that Finn Jones actually manages to pull his weight. He's a good actor but there's a lot stacked against him.

    According to Finn Jones, the miniseries takes place over 48 hours.

    I just do not agree that Danny sucked in Iron Fist. I liked Danny in the show. IF is underrated

    That's kind of hard to believe. I mean everything that we saw in the trailer couldn't possibly take place in just 48 hours without feeling very rushed or disjointed.

    So we see Luke Cage in jail, come back to New York City, and help the Defenders in defeating the hand all in 48 hours?

    He was so unlikeable though. Like what was his personal struggle? I read on another site, someone describing DD, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all had some kind of struggle the main character had to deal with. Danny was just a poor guy trying to reclaim his identity/family name and none of it really landed well for me.

    He was probably talking broadly about the subject. Most of the series will take place over 48 hours but the first episode could have a little more time to it...

    Well, I guess we'll eventually see on how it all turns out.

    Man, I'm still bummed that Daredevil is going to be the only character with an actual costume. He's actually going to stick out like a sore thumb when compared to everyone else.

    Now, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones; I can understand them not having any costumes.

    But Danny just having a green hood and a jacket (something similar to what Luke and Jessica are wearing)...you might as well call this group the members in the hood.
