THE DEFENDERS is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality in Marvel's Netflix Universe, and today the series landed its showrunners to steer the ship.

Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who operated as showrunners for Season Two of DAREDEVIL, have been given the reins for the culmination of all Marvel's series on the content streamer. THE DEFENDERS will bring together Daredevil, Jessica, Luke Cage and Iron Fist (and you have to imagine The Punisher is going to get involved) to fight a threat larger than we've seen on any of those characters' respective shows to this point. 

In addition, Drew Goddard will serve as an executive producer on the series, along with Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, who said the following about Petrie and Ramirez...

We're incredibly excited to be able to bring our four street level heroes together in an epic tale woven by Doug and Marco whose work on ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ speaks for itself. They write and produce not only great action and adventure, but also the heart and touch of humor that's makes us Marvel. With the inclusion of Drew Goddard, we've got a team that's as formidable as the Defenders themselves.

With rumors circulating that THE DEFENDERS may start shooting before the year is out, it won't be long after IRON FIST drops for our binge-watching that we should have another Marvel Netflix show to plow through. I'd expect a late-2017 premiere with the way things are moving.

Eh

The showrunners for Dardevil and their writing style bugs me. I know both seasons had different showrunners but the tone and style of writing was the same. Only improvement in the second season were the amount of awesome fight scenes. They were better staged and more frequent in season 2. But the main gripe I have is how all the characters do it bicker, bicker, and bicker at each other. And they're all constantly annoyed with each other and feel so betrayed about the secrets Matt keeps. Look I

But the main gripe I have is how all the characters do it bicker, bicker, and bicker at each other. And they're all constantly annoyed with each other and feel so betrayed about the secrets Matt keeps. Look I know they are going for a realistic take but did we really need to see Foggy complain so much this season when that's all he did last season after he found out Matt lied to him and didn't tell him he was Daredevil? At the end of the day I'm watching a superhero show. Most of the time, however, it felt like a melodramatic soap opera. And stupid Karen and her problem with FEELING AND CARING TOO MUCH! Ugh...

Still though, all that aside I enjoyed some aspects but I hope they fix the problems I had and don't repeat those mistakes with Defenders.

Also, the Blacksky thing is so dumb. They kept saying how dangerous it/she was but never even elaborated a little about it. They might eventually but it's been 2 seasons and I know next to nothing about it. If you're going to use it as a plot device/macguffin at least write it a little better so I'm interested.

Cannot wait. DD has been groundbreaking for Marvel. Jessica Jones probably even more so even if I prefer DD over it. Both shows are nothing short of spectacular. I have similar hopes for both Luke Cage and Iron Fist. So with that said, bring on the Defenders. Just hope Punisher is part of it since they'll probably be filming Defenders before they get underway with a Punisher series. So incorporating him into that would be bad ass.

Hope the tone is more in the vein of Dardevil more than any of the other character's shows. I know we just have Jessica Jones to compare it to, but still.

The last 4 or so episodes of JJ was great stuff - I wouldn't say no to that tone but yeh...overall, I think I'd want more DD than JJ when it comes to the rest of the coming shows...in so far as my 12 year old was seriously annoyed at me that I didn't let him watch JJ. "But can't you just forward those scenes dad...c'mon...there's the forward button!!!!"
