When Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron First form ‘The Defenders‘ to fight evil this August they won’t be alone as we’ve just learned that The Chaste will be returning to help them! Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra is set to unite our heroes against a common evil with likely Madame Gao and The Hand helping her out so thankfully our heroes won’t stand alone.
For those who recognize the name but can’t place it, The Chaste is the order which Daredevil’s old master, Stick is a part of. We know of at least one other member of the order who will be appearing in the upcoming season as Marko Zaror (‘Machete Kills’) revealed in a recent interview that he will be portraying Shaft in the next series which teams our heroes together. Another Frank Miller creation, Shaft was an archer who worked with Stick in their clan. Both Stone and Star were briefly introduced in ‘Daredevil’ which brings the member count up to three as Elektra had killed him off before his prime. If we get a full on invasion by The Hand, it is likely that even more members could pop up. Let’s be honest; our heroes probably could use all the help they can get when the show kicks off.
Generally, if the Chaste will be involved it will be to go up against The Hand as they’ve had such a strong influence over the shows so far. We know that Iron Fist brings The Defenders together, so it would make sense that it is to go up against his enemies.
The first official trailer for ‘The Defenders’ will hopefully be launching soon to give us a better idea of what to expect.
Are you looking forward to a return of The Chaste when ‘The Defenders’ kicks off? Will they be helping fight off The Hand or will Stick not be agreeable to working with Daredevil or the Iron Fist for his own reasons? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
‘The Defenders’ will be protecting Netflix on August 18th, 2017!
