Simone Missick Confirms Misty Knight Will Defend ‘The Defenders’
We’re just hours away from binging all that Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage has to offer, but don’t hold it against star Simone Missick for dropping an anticipated spoiler early. Not only will Misty Knight live to fight another day, the Marvel fan-favorite will also arm up for The Defenders crossover series.
Missick confirmed as much in an interview with The Wrap, jokingly admitting to some uncertainty with her job status after letting that detail slip. “I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on ‘The Defenders,’” said Missick. “Spoiler alert! If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on ‘The Defenders,’ until I got fired.”
Of course, it remains to be seen if Luke Cage will see Misty Knight gaining the bionic arm universally associated with the character, while prior reports of Missick appearing in Iron Fist were supposedly debunked. The character is often paired with Marvel hero Danny Rand, and well-known for founding Nightwing Restorations with Iron Fist character Colleen Wing.
Knight is one of many supporting cast confirmed for the big team-up series, including Daredevil’s Elden Henson and Scott Glenn, and Jessica Jones’ Eka Darville.
