The Defenders had brought up some hype since its trailer release as 4 people from different paths of life come together to save the city, Kind of the same story every Superhero series goes through.
But after taking a look at Daredevil which was released back in 2015, we were quite happy with how it turned out to be. And later when Jessica Jones was introduced it felt like this could go someplace good. Although Luke Cage and Iron Fist didn’t quite excite everyone this actually felt promising and that they could team up just like the Avengers.
The team gathers very slowly since they have a problem with each other especially Cage and Danny. The series has some good action to it and also maybe some humor which is mostly brought up by Jessica. The show is very boring and the story is not properly implemented.

(Warning: ⚠ Spoilers Ahead)
The first three episodes are wasted on how they team up and introduce each other although it doesn’t quite work out between them. This was to be named a smaller version of The Avengers, but I wouldn’t quite say that it has lived up to its expectations. It seems like the character’s power has been reduced in the series if compared to their solo ventures. Daredevil the mastermind of the group does not land punches like he does in his solo series. Jessica Jones, possibly the most fierce Superheroine up to date is not quite active when it comes to the fighting scenes. Luke Cage, who we all know is unbreakable feels a little left out, and Of course, how could we forget the Iron Fist, he just manages to get more irritating than his own show. The guy who does not listen to others gets into trouble because of his own doing.
As predicted, The Defenders main villain is The Hand who is lead by Alexandra. Alexandra quite surprisingly played a very short role although she manages to resurrect Elektra with their last of the resource and transform her into Black Sky. The show is mainly surrounded around Danny and how he gets into trouble.
The finale shows us how Matt Murdock will be crushed under a building with Elektra, Although later we see Danny Rand, choosing to honor Matt, So does Danny become the city’s most prominent hero, no one knows.
We can’t blame you for assuming that Daredevil is dead since a giant building crashed on Matt and Elektra. Yes, his superpower is to fight even without his eyesight but certainly, he isn’t indestructible. We are still awaiting the answer to how he got out of that mess.
I didn’t quite understand what was the need to bring that building down, Of course, it won’t end The Hand organization but some of the leaders might have died but Madame Gao manages to vanish in action, but not quite sure where she goes
Rumours are flying around which says that The Avengers might come on for a small cameo in the series, which may be interesting but to bring in actors like Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson will be very expensive for a small cameo, but let’s see and keep our hopes high for this.
According to me, The show took in a lot of time to gather the four together which made it kind of dull and boring. The storyline is also very slow but still, you can’t say no to Marvel Series.
