Photos from the set of Marvel’s much-anticipated Netflix crossover event, The Defenders have hit the web. As exciting as it is to see Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) united together for the first time on screen, fans continue to speculate on what pushes them into action against Alexandra, the main antagonist portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Sigourney Weaver. Some of the most exciting set photos include a reunion between Jessica Jones and Luke Cage as well as the villainous Alexandra.
