Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist introduced the superheroes of Hell's Kitchen, their problems and their particular traumas, and everything that lives in their series is transferred to The Defenders, the miniseries that unites them to save New York.

Nolan emphasizes emotionality, psychological depth, and humanism. Amazon | Trailer
