Given that Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series The Defenders boasts a roster that includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, it gives the show quite the selection of possible villains.
The Hand have already featured prominently as antagonists opposite both Daredevil and Iron Fist, you have the connection between Jessica Jones and IGH along with whomever Sigourney Weaver’s character is set to be aligned with.
One of The Defenders antagonists however, is set to be lead by a face familiar to fans of the Marvel Netflix stable. Stick, Daredevil’s mentor’s elite fighting force, The Chaste. Fans of the Daredevil comics will be familiar with The Chaste, as a group specifically trained by Stick to aid him in his war against The Hand.
While The Chaste do share a common enemy with The Defenders, due to Daredevil’s less than harmonious last encounter with his mentor, it is likely both groups could end up on opposing sides.
Chilean actor Marko Zaror has already been cast as Shaft, one of The Caste’s more infamous members. Zaror is famous for staring in action orientated roles so that should in theory make him perfect for the role.
The Defenders is set for release on Netflix on August 18th 2017.
