The Defenders finally brought together the titular heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in the successful battle to save New York City. However, while the characters may have parted ways following their victory, many fans question how each hero will realistically avoid calling upon their new allies in their own individual shows in the future. In an interview with Collider, showrunner Marco Ramirez discussed the possibility of featuring more crossovers in the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ramirez expressed his excitement over the storytelling possibilities now that the characters have met:
“Now that they’ve all been cross-pollinated, it might be something that people have to think about. I don’t know. That’s more of a Marvel question. I have nothing to do with any of the other shows. But now that they’ve all met, all bets are off. They know each other, so you have to address that. I think that’s actually, as a storyteller, very exciting.”
Ramirez also discussed his experience writing for the supporting cast of each series:
“I’ve been working in the Daredevil world for two years. The thought that I finally got to write for Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, these are characters that I’ve been loving and watching, as an audience member, for awhile. The supporting casts are just as integral to the story, and were just as much fun to write for.”

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See
After three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.
Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.
Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.
Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.
So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
