The roster for Netflix’s epic team-up miniseries is only getting bigger, and now you can add another hero to the roster.

Simone Missick, who plays the cop Misty Knight in Luke Cage, confirmed to The Wrap that she will also be showing up in The Defenders. Missick absolutely steals the show in Season 1 of Luke Cage, so it’s great to hear she’ll definitely be back in some capacity.

Of course, it’s also worth noting Misty Knight becomes a costumed hero/private eye in her own right in the comic canon (with ties to Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Sam Wilson, etc.), so we’d look for her role to continue to grow in the coming years (hopefully).

Here’s an excerpt from her comments:

“I believe I’m safe to say that I will be on The Defenders. Spoiler alert! If I lose my job because of this interview, sorry! I was supposed to be on The Defenders, until I got fired.”

The full first season of Luke Cage hits Netflix tomorrow, September 30. Once you finish it, you’ll be even happier about this news. The Defenders, which will see Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist team-up for the first time, is set to begin filming this year.
