CBTVB: Karen Page and Misty Knight to Join the Defenders in Their Fight

By Muuka Muyumba

Today, Marvel announced that The Defenders would be adding Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) to the cast of the upcoming blockbuster mini-series. The show will feature the Marvel Netflix title characters Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) with a likely featured player role for The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) taking on the main villain of the series played by Sigourney Weaver. We still don’t know what Marvel character she is playing.

Karen was introduced in Daredevil season 1 as a young woman thrown in the middle of a murderous corporate controversy who then later becomes an office assistant to Matt and Foggy. In season 2, Karen continued to search for who she was outside of the Murdock and Nelson law firm. By the end of season 2, we see Karen taking up the role of an investigator for the New York Bulletin. Woll will also be a castmember of the upcoming solo Punisher series.

Misty Knight burst onto the scene in Luke Cage season 1 in a role that surprised many with how significant the role came to be. Knight was the tenacious homicide detective who romantically entangled with Cage, and then came to realize how central Cage was to much of the violence in Harlem. What we saw in Knight was a ferocious forensic mind for crime who cared deeply about Harlem and justice.

Missick and Woll are also likely to be joined by Carrie-Ann Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Eka Darville (Malcom Ducasse), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Royce Johnson (Brett Mahoney), and other recurring actors in the ultimate Marvel TV Team up in 2017.
