Ahead of her debut in Marvel’s Iron Fist next year, Jessica Henwick‘s Colleen Wing has been confirmed for 2017’s The Defenders. This news comes just a day after Marvel confirmed Scott Glenn, Rachel Taylor, and Rosario Dawson to reprise their roles from Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

Why the early casting announcements? The simple answer is how open Marvel’s filming of the show has been. Rather than let things come out through pictures from the set, it only makes sense to give official confirmation ahead of time. Over the coming days we’ll probably get even more casting confirmations. The Defenders debuts on Netflix in 2017.
