Netflix made two big casting announcements during the panel for its Marvel series today.
First was the news that Deborah Ann Woll is going to appear in THE PUNISHER along with star Jon Bernthal. Woll will reprise the role of Karen Page, whom viewers first met in Marvel’s Daredevil.
In addition, the four leads of THE DEFNEDERS — Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil) from Marvel’s DAREDEVIL, Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) from Marvel’s JESSICA JONES, and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) from Marvel’s LUKE CAGE joined Finn Jones (Danny Rand) from Marvel’s IRON FISH — took to the stage for the first time and joined the announcement that would be playing a significant — but currently unspecified — role in THE DEFENDERS.
“Marvel is honored to have an actress of her caliber and status join what is already our biggest show ever! She is by definition a class act,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.
