The Defenders‘ are going to teaming up to rock Netflix this August and Jessica Henwick is promising that fans are going to love what they’re doing. Henwick will be reprising her role of Colleen Wing from ‘Iron Fist’ though she isn’t going to be in quite the same state as we left her at the end of the show. While we know the focus is bringing together Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, Krysten Ritter’s ‘Jessica Jones,’ Mike Colter’s ‘Luke Cage,’ and Finn Jones as Danny Rand, there is a slew of supporting characters for the show to explore as well.

Not only have we learned how long the show takes place after the events in ‘Iron Fist’ but also what happened to Colleen Wing since then:

“We pick up with Colleen, not in New York — which is crazy, as all the shows have been predominantly in New York. We find her a month after we left her. It’s really interesting she hasn’t been able to deal with the emotional trauma she dealt with in Iron Fist. So it builds to a head and she explodes in Defenders.”

Henwick went on to let fans of the Netflix shows know that there will be some great character crossover interactions in ‘The Defenders’:

“It’s good, it’s really good. I think people are going to love seeing characters interact with each other, they’re going to see Colleen and Misty [Simone Missick], they’re going to love seeing Luke Cage with the Iron Fist, Danny Rand. I think fans are going to freak out.”

I’m assuming that this means we have an entirely different set of stunt coordinators than we did in ‘Iron Fist’ and will actually be getting action more along the lines of what we’ve seen in ‘Daredevil.’
