Another day, another Tweeted video revealing more returning characters from across the Marvel-Netflixverse for the superhero mash-up series The Defenders. The lucky winners in the latest draw are Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker from Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Scott Glenn as Stick from Marvel’s Daredevil and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple from everything. Although unlikely, it would be nice to think that Trish Walker might become Hellcat for the mini-series, since Hellcat was one of the Defenders in the comics.
