A Defenders Villains Prequel? 

This post will be a sort of verbal requiem for some of the departed. I wanted to look back on a few of the villians from #DEFENDERS and my hopes for them in the future. As you all know, it can be a tall order to make a villain that is interesting. Marvel/Netflix has done this through incredible writing AND casting. For example, far and away the BEST example of this was casting Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin.

Not only did the dude look like him but, he OWNED that muthufuckin’ role! Another one that comes to mind was David Wenham as Harold Mechum from that sloppy shit sammich of a series #IRONFIST. He turned out to be one of the highlights of that series. One thing to come out of #THEDEFENDERS was a cast of villains that was WAY to shortly lived and I HOPE that Marvel/Netflix has the wisdom to go back and make an 8-episode prequal for. I would like to see how life was in K’un L’un. I would like to see how The Five Fingers all first got there and how they were cast out of the city. Most importantly what for.

I would love to see an earlier version of the Iron Fist doing what he do. Most importantly, I would love to see how Alexandra Reid (Sigourney Weaver) came to be in K’un L’un because, just like Danny, she’s an American. Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) seemed to actually be afraid of Reid and that tough ol’ bitch ain't scared of NUTHIN! I would love to find out exactly why that is? The most fascinating and underused villain from #THEDEFENDERS HAD to be my boy Murakami (Yutaka Takeuchi).

Here was a guy who seemed to rise to his position from the ground up. I get the feeling that he started out as a mere soldier and survived. He showed such veracity when it came to his fighting and such absolute devotion that he simply took his post because men fell in line behind him. They grew to respect him because of his accomplishments. So yes #MARVEL #NETFLIX, we as fans would like it VERY MUCH if you would make a prequel of the fingers of the fist coming together happen, please. You guys sure as fuck charge enough per person enough to watch Netflix.
