Elden Henson to Play Foggy Nelson on The Defenders Series

Foggy Nelson 200 (GalleyCat)Elden Henson has signed on to reprise the role of Foggy Nelson on Netflix’s The Defenders series. The actor (pictured, via) originally played this character (a Hell’s Kitchen lawyer and the best friend of Matt Murdock) on the Daredevil series.

Here’s more from Cinema Blend: “It was announced recently the order in which Netflix’s future Marvel series will be released, confirming that Daredevil Season 3 will enter the schedule at some point after The Defenders airs. Had it come before, perhaps the rift between Matt and Foggy could have been either completely healed or further developed, making his presence during the miniseries’ events less important. But since that break in trust will all still be relatively fresh for the two men, as well as Karen, it would have been weird for Foggy not to show up in some capacity.”

Empire Magazine reports that The Defenders will star four Marvel superheroes: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. All of the episodes of the first season will be posted online in 2017. Click here to watch the teaser for this new comic book adaptation series. (via MCU Exchange)
