I’m halfway through the Defenders on Netflix right now, and would be watching more if it wasn’t for having to work this morning…but luckily we’ve got these interviews of the cast from the Red Carpet premiere.
This one focuses on the cast of Daredevil, including Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), and showrunner Marco Ramirez, who worked on both Daredevil Season 2 and The Defenders.
I find it interesting when they are asked what they are most excited for fans to see in the series. It turns out that Woll was a big fan of Alias/Jessica Jones from the comics and was eager to see that character come to life. Cox chose the interaction between Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand (Finn Jones), the classic Heroes for Hire team-up. Ramirez was eager for fans to meet Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver).
Woll’s character of Karen Page may be one of the biggest departures from the comics, as she’s gone from being the secretary to taking on the Ben Urich (Vondie Curtis-Hall) role in the Daredevil universe as the investigator. I’d be interested in learning why the chose to kill off Urich in Season 1 and then have Page take on that role.
