Let’s be real the reception for Marvel and Netflix’ Iron Fist is mixed at best. Compared to its predecessors Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage it out right sucked. So far Marvel and Netflix are 3 out of 4 with its shows but rumor Is Irin Fists production was rushed to kick-start the roll-out for its ensemble series The Defenders.
Now to the good stuff, thanks to a possible mistake, Netflix may have jumped the gun and posted a teaser clip a little bit too soon. Earlier this morning (April 4th) Netflix appeared to have accidentally uploaded a 15-second teaser to their YourTube account for The Defenders, in the form of “security camera footage” of the four characters — Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist — in an elevator. Nothing special, but then Jessica Jones “stops” the camera at a very specific time: 8:18:20:17.
Now call me crazy but I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out that “8:18:20:17” stood for August 18th, 2017. Since it was revealed back in 2016 that the show would premiere sometime in Summer 2017, this would make perfect sense. However, Netflix removed the video from their account and has made no mention of it thus far. Stay tuned for updates.
