Over the past few days, photos from the set of The Defenders have begun making their way online. We’ve seen Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones on set, alongside the likes of Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick), and just yesterday, we saw Luke Cage (Mike Colter) alongside Knight. Now, the most recent ones drop a big hint as to where Cage and Claire Temple’s (Rosario Dawson) relationship may pick up at the start of The Defenders.
Sweet Christmas! These pictures really don’t leave much to the imagination.
While it is nice to see Luke finding some happiness with Claire, fans have to wonder what this means for Jessica Jones. Her and Luke’s relationship has already been featured in Jessica’s own titular show, however, it ended on a pretty uneven note. This may be an issue for some comic fans who are used to seeing the two in a serious relationship.
Then again the series is set to have 8 episodes for its first season, so who knows what could happen? Until then fans can rest assured that Luke will definitely be getting his coffee on. The Defenders will hit Netflix sometime in 2017.
