For the most part, all of the Marvel Netflix series released to date have been well received by fans and critics alike. Well, with the exception of Iron Fist, which drew much critical ire upon its release.
While the Iron Fist stand-alone is probably the weakest of the series in The Defenders stable, Game Of Thrones actor Jessica Henwick‘s portrayal of Colleen Wing is regarded as a series high point.
Speaking recently with Entertainment Weekly, Jessica Henwick gave a few titbits on what Colleen Wing’s role in the upcoming Defenders TV series will be:
“We pick up with Colleen not in New York — which is crazy, as all the shows have been predominantly in New York,” Henwick reveals. “We find her a month after we left her. It’s really interesting she hasn’t been able to deal with the emotional trauma she dealt with in Iron Fist. So it builds to a head and she explodes in Defenders.”
Henwick then went on to say she thought that fans will be pleased with the upcoming series:
“It’s good, it’s really good. I think people are going to love seeing characters interact with each other, they’re going to see Colleen and Misty, they’re going to love seeing Luke Cage with the Iron Fist, Danny Rand. I think fans are going to freak out.”
The Defenders is set for release on Netflix on August 18 2017.
