It was Daredevil star Charlie Cox who first let slip that Marvel Netflix teamup The Defenders would start shooting before 2016's end, throwing into question Daredevil Season 3, and now we can consider it official.

Neither Marvel nor Netflix have made particularly clear how the future Defenders series will be scheduled, following Luke Cage’s September premiere, current Iron Fist production, or the others awaiting new seasons, but has Daredevil come to the rescue? Charlie Cox says The Defenders will shoot later this year, potentially setting us up for a 2017 premiere.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.

Daredevil Season 2 has proven to be a very different animal than its predecessor, but that hasn’t stopped the Netflix Man Without Fear from one-upping his past. Watch the full five-minute hallway fight that Charlie Cox compared to the first season sequence “on crack”!
Daredevil Season 2 has only been available to stream for a few short days, with no guaranteed of a third season before Matt Murdock joins The Defenders, but already Charlie Cox knows who should take aim at the Man Without Fear in Season 3, including a familiar face, and a long-awaited debut.
Most Marvel fans have barely had the time to start their Daredevil Season 2 binge, and already our first look at Luke Cage has arrived! The third Defender has released a first official teaser for the September 30 premiere, already shrugging off bullets.
