‘The Defenders’: Here’s Why Luke Cage & Iron Fist Clash

Anticipation is running high for Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming miniseries, The Defenders. After the success of their four respective shows preceding this ultimate team-up featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, fans are excited to see what these four problematic heroes are capable of when they need to unite together when their biggest threat invades New York.

Two of the Defenders, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, are usually best friends in the comics and cartoons, but in Marvel and Netflix’s The Defenders their relationship will start off a little rocky. While at San Diego Comic-Con, Mike Colter and Finn Jones gave fans a hint to Cage and Iron Fist’s beef and now Colter is clarifying those statements. While talking with i09, Colter had this to say:

“I’m kind of a guy that understands what it’s like to take care of community and neighborhoods and to be a one-on-one person. It’s grassroots, you know the people you’re protecting, you have a common bond with them, I feel like I’m someone the people can touch and feel. It’s just one of those things, they know where I live, I don’t have a private jet. That’s what’s nice when we first meet up, cause we have these two conflicting ideologies and not only in the way we tackle our situation but also in where we come from. And it is interesting when we first get together that there is a tension of conflict between us. And we do have to work out our issues for us to then eventually, maybe, team up and work together.”

This seems like a great, realistic, direction for two of Marvel’s greatest street level heroes. What do you guys think of Colter’s comments? Are you ready to see Power Man and Iron Fist in action? Sound off in the comments section.

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

All episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders will be available to stream on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
