Even as Marvel’s Iron Fist finally completed the sequence of Netflix heroes that will bring us The Defenders team-up, certain fans will never give up hope that the four could join the larger collective of cinematic Avengers. Sadly, The Falcon is none-too-keen on such a crossover, as Anthony Mackie dismisses Marvel’s TV heroes as “different universes, different worlds.”
Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones
Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ brings his glowing justice to New York as early as this Friday, introducing MCU takes on Colleen Wing, the Meachums and more along the way. We’ve already reviewed Marvel’s biggest misfire yet, but before your own binge, get answers to some of ‘Iron Fist’s most burning questions with our spoilery FAQ review of the first six episodes!
By now, you’ve probably binge-watched Jessica Jones, the second Marvel series from Netflix. But did you know the show was originally set up at ABC under a totally different title? The series began life as A.K.A. Jessica Jones? The comic it was based on, Alias, wouldn’t have worked as the title of the TV series because of the Jessica Garner spy show; eventually producers decided the “A.K.A.” part of the title was unnecessary and shortened the name to just Jessica Jones. There’s a nod to the original title in every episode, however; each episode title begins with “A.K.A.” – Episode 3 of Season 1, for example, is called “A.K.A. It’s Called Whiskey.” That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?

Our first looks at The Defenders haven’t shown us much in the way of actual team-ups from the different series, especially as some are unlikely to play well together. That said, Jessica Jones and Daredevil seem to be getting along swimmingly in new photos from the New York set, at least in-between takes.
Only two or so of Marvel’s Netflix Defenders have costumes we expect to see during major events, to say nothing of some otherwise-memorable looks drafted during their individual series. Now, two Defenders and their closest allies have hit the street in new set photos, looking very much as we remember.
The very first teaser made clear that The Defenders would wield a Stick against Hell’s Kitchen’s Hand-iest problem, and a number of other Marvel Netflix stars have confirmed their return for the team-up series as well. Latest to join The Defenders officially are none other than some of Daredevil’s most conflicted allies, and Jessica Jones’ best friends.
