During the New York Comic Con panel, Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb announced that Sigourney Weaver will play the villian in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix collaboration “The Defenders”. The Defenders see Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist join forces to battle, who better than Ripley herself.
Well not seriously Ripley although that would be amazing – Weaver’s character has not been disclosed. I, for one, would love to see her play a villain associated with The Hand – maybe the Beast of the Hand.
Charlie Cox, Finn Jones, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter also star as Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Production on “The Defenders” is slated to begin in a few weeks ahead of a late 2017 premiere.
