Marvel Plays Us Like A Fiddle: 'Daughters Of The Dragon' Edition
So The Defenders didn’t actually start streaming on Netflix last Friday, much to my surprise. Turns out I suck at dates and it actually starts this Friday. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This means we’re in for one last week of incessant teases to get us pumped for a show we’ve already sat through, like, five other seasons to get to (assuming you bothered with Iron Fist). At this point I don’t care — I plan to watch for 8 new episodes of Jessica Jones being bitter, and nothing they release is going to change that.
But the Marvel/Netflix marketing team is no slouch. They released a short clip via the Iron Fist twitter account… teasing the meeting of the Daughters of the Dragon!
Look, it’s not much to go on, but it’s still weirdly satisfying to see the worlds of Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) collide. Will they go on to form their own crime fighting team-up the way they do in the comics? Will they just become besties and complain about their superhero friends? It doesn’t matter, because in that brief glimpse Colleen already has more chemistry with Misty than she did with Iron Fist during his entire first season. I know The Defenders is going to have a lot to juggle in 8 episodes, but here’s hoping it still finds time to stick these two ladies together and let them shine.
