‘Defenders’ Explores The Status Of Matt & Karen’s Relationship

Matt and Karen Daredevil DefendersThe second season finale of Marvel’s Daredevil leaves Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) life in a chaotic state. Nelson and Murdock has since disintegrated, Elektra (Elodie Yung) has died (or has she?) and his relationship with Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) has been tarnished. By the time Marvel’s The Defenders premieres, we will finally see how Matt’s life changes when he meets Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand (Finn Jones).

In the season finale, we see Matt bluntly reveal to Karen that he is in fact the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Fans were left hanging, speculating on how their relationship has changed now that she is the latest person in his life to know his secret. Now, we will see the status of their relationship in the highly-anticipated event. Recently, Deborah Ann Woll hinted that their connection will be explored once again:

“I think you’ll definitely see us pick up and discuss what that is, but it’s also a little bit about figuring out whether I can trust him, or whether he can trust me. We’re in a little bit of that limbo.”

Imagine finding out that your significant other is the masked vigilante continuing to put him/herself in danger. Imagine all the stress that must give you – especially if your own life is already in trouble given that you live in such a dangerous neighborhood already.

Although we will be seeing more of Matt and Karen’s relationship in The Defenders, we will also see Karen’s arc and relationship with Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) explored when Marvel premieres the highly-anticipated The Punisher series later this year.

Where do you think Matt and Karen’s relationship is at by the time The Defenders starts? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding Marvel’s Netflix series.

15 Villains To Watch Out For In The ‘Defenders’ Universe

It’s no secret that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has concentrated on their heroes over their villains on the film side. Some fans biggest complaints are that the villains serve more as a tool, a plot device, or an obstacle for our heroes to overcome. That is not the case in the Marvel/Netflix Defenders shows. Since the shows have more than 13 hours to develop characters, they have 13 hours to develop their antagonists as well. Some of the best character work in the entire MCU has been done for Wilson Fisk (Daredevil), Kilgrave (Jessica Jones), Cottonmouth (Luke Cage), and Ward Meachum (Iron Fist).

As “Phase 1” of the Netflix shows comes to a conclusion with The Defenders teaming up all our heroes against Alexandra and the Hand, you know that they will be gearing up for “Phase 2.” This means that there will be new adventures for our heroes, as well as new dynamic villains to give them all sorts of trouble. Some villains would be some returning from previous shows, others are classic Marvel characters that need to come to the small screen in this universe. Here is a list of some villains surely to make a park in future Marvel/Netflix shows. Click Next to take a look….
