Marvel’s “The Defenders” Hits August 18th

The official Netflix YouTube channel has revealed a short video titled ‘Midland Circle Security Elevator B’ which seems to have revealed an August 18th 2017 premiere date for Marvel and Netflix’s “The Defenders” event series.

The video is security cam footage of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) together on screen. The shot clip indicates the release date, seen as time code, and points to a viral website (

The clip comes as actor Charlie Cox revealed in an interview with Boogaloo Radio (via MCU Exchange) that filming on the third season of “Daredevil” kicks off later this year.

With “Jessica Jones” now filming its second season with it likely to take an early 2018 release slot (ala “Daredevil” S2 last year and “Iron Fist” S1 this year), it looks like the third season of “Daredevil” will take the mid-2018 release which “Luke Cage” bowed in last year and “Defenders” opens in this year.
