Rumor: Daredevil & The Defenders to appear in Avengers: Infinity War Part 2

04.17.2015

Daredevil Iron Fist Luke Cage Jessica Jones

Although Daredevil has only been available on Netflix for a week, greedy people (such as myself) are already wondering what Marvel's future plans are for The Man Without Fear. We know he'll be teaming up with Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones in the planned The Defenders series, but what about after that?

Sources tell Bleeding Cool that Daredevil and the rest of The Defenders will appear in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART II. There's no details on how big of a role they will have or why The Defenders won't be in the first film. Some have speculated that their big screen appearance could lead to the characters getting solo movies in Phase 4.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART II is scheduled to open in 2019, so by then there should be at least one more season of each Netflix series, and Marvel is more than likely going to go big (like, really big) with the two-part Avengers movie. In other Marvel news, Bleeding Cool is also claiming that ABC's Agent Carter is "75% confirmed" for a second season.

What do you believe are Marvel's movie plans for The Defenders characters, and (if this rumor is true) how do you think they might be used in the second Infinity War film?

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - PART II will be in theaters on May 3, 2019.

Civil War

They should totally have Ben Parker's carjacking in Jessica Jones! I'd love for stuff like that, even have the build up of Civil War. I also want Daredevil to cameo in Civil War!

I like the idea of Marvel building up a universe on three fronts with the Defenders on Netflix, the Agents of SHIELD and Inhumans on TV and the Avengers in the movies. I would like to see Spider-Man and Doctor Strange cross over with the Netflix shows with Punisher, Moon Knight, Blade and Ghost Rider thrown into the mix. Agents of SHIELD is building its own cast of powered people with Deathlok, Mockingbird, Quake and Agent 33. They could throw Spider-Woman, Cloak and Dagger and the Runaways

Agents of SHIELD is building its own cast of powered people with Deathlok, Mockingbird, Quake and Agent 33. They could throw Spider-Woman, Cloak and Dagger and the Runaways in there too. Marvel will still have a good cast of Avengers after Chris Evans, Chris Helmsworth and Robert Downey Junior retire from their respective roles. Hell, they could come back for cameos: nobody has confirmed killing their characters off.

My guess is that if Daredevil, etc, appear in Infinity War it is so they can appear in future Avengers movies and not so they can have solo movies. The next logical storyline to tackle after Infinity War would be Avengers Initiative with the Avengers broken up into East Coast and West Coast teams or, alternatively, a Mighty Avengers / Force Works style team led by War Machine and a New Avengers / Secret Avengers style team led by the Black Widow. Who knows? We might even see an Avengers Europe with Captain Britain, Union Jack, the Whizzer, etc.

I wouldn't hold my breath. If AoS has proven anything it's that the main Avengers characters are likely not showing up to do anything on any of the television properties. We'll get a very occasional appearance from Fury, Hill or a tertiary character like Sif, but even the characters that would make complete sense like Black Widow and Hawkeye just aren't going to show up.

I would imagine the actors with established film careers, which all of the Avengers actors have, feel like doing TV is

I would imagine the actors with established film careers, which all of the Avengers actors have, feel like doing TV is beneath them. The TV characters might show up in the films sometime, or the Netflix and ABC universes might intersect, but I seriously doubt we're ever going to see Hemsworth, Renner, Ruffalo etc. show up on AoS and the like. I know Thor was on AoS in some canned footage, but that doesn't really count. It seems like more of a possibility on the Netflix series, if only because of the perception of Netflix as more prestigious.

I'm on board regardless. Daredevil is so badass. I'm as excited for the future Netflix/Marvel series as I am for any Marvel movies. This is fucking Daredevil!!! The DD we always wanted! Fuck you, Affleck! I'm kidding. If he had directed DD it would've been a much better movie, no doubt.

I don't believe it, not yet at least.

If anything they would be in Civil War, or at least Daredevil would be. They can't just throw these low class heroes into the mix during the second part of a HUGE summer blockbuster.

This is pure speculation, but I imagine that the first movie will focus on the characters in space. Defending the Earth from the arrival of Thanos and his army. I think the second movie will have Thanos on Earth and therefore the Defenders are introduced as they are fighting the army from the street level. Just a guess.

Overcrowded?

Avengers Infinity Wars sounds like it's going to be a wild ride, and with Whedon commenting on the likelihood of multiple villains throughout both entries, I can see a larger team assembling. My only concern is relevance. Thanos will undoubtely be the big baddie to take down, but can we assume he'll kill off most of the heroes we know are going to eventually be in the movie?

what about Civil War?

I'm excited to hear that they will in fact all be together on the big screen hopefully, but was hoping that time would come during the Civil War storyline. I guess that's pushing the timetable a little, since filming will start soon/has started, but I still feel like that story needs to be packed with heroes to work

That sounds great but how will they meet? I guess we'll get more into that once Aka. Jessica Jones is on air.

Great news! This new interpretation of Daredevil is terrific and I'm glad that he'll be doing the transistion from small screen to big screen. Should be awesome to see him fighting with the Defenders alongside all of the Avengers, and Guardians as well.

And as for Agent Carter being 75% renewed for a second season. Hell yes! Season one was a whole lotta fun with a world and characters I would like to revisit again.

With just one season, I actually like Agent Carter more than Agents of SHIELD.

seems logical

its more than likely that they will appear in the second half of Infinity Wars, but i assume because they're more street level heroes, it will be more of a cameo, like maybe Tony Stark giving them keys to Avengers tower to keep an eye on things while the Avengers go off to fight Thanos.

Do stars get paid less in an ensemble? Just wondering. Coz it would seem these two movies are going to be very expensive to make just in terms of the budget going on the actors and actresses... if everyone gets their normal rate, whatever that may be. I suppose I should just be basking in the joy of all that is unfolding before my eyes. :o)

Just keep them seperate

There's no point crossing these two worlds over, vague references will suffice.

Daredevil operates in a reality much closer to ours, where the aliens and gods aren't necessarily duking it out in the streets of Hell's Kitchen, there's no need to change that.
