You didn’t come for my ramblings, just watch the video.
You may notice that once JJ punches the camera and the screen cuts to static, the top right corner bears the time stamp of 08:18:20:17. If you didn’t, you can go back and watch it again. I’ll wait.
Okay, good. So that means we’re looking at a date of August 8, 2017, yes? Sounds good to me.
I will say, having finished Iron Fist over the weekend, I’m pretty jazzed for the Defenders, but when I watched the video initially, I thought that Matt was Danny and that the Iron Fist was finally wearing his mask…not Murdock tying a tshirt around his head.
I’m excited to see how Misty and Colleen fit into the ensemble, and I’m really hoping that The Defenders clarifies the Hand missteps that Iron Fist kept making. While introduced in DD as a clan of mystical ninjas, the Fist showed a much softer side…one a whole lot less like the comic roots.
