The Defenders Series Villain might have been revealed according to this new rumor.
The villain of The Defenders might have just been revealed.. According to an unnamed source the antagonist of the superhero team-up show’s villain could be Mephisto.
Here’s what he had to say:
“Marvel is talking about setting Mephisto as the prime antagonist for the Defenders. Some may say that this villain wouldn’t fit the TV shows but that’s why they’re incorporating Iron Fist – to set up the supernatural element. This would also help set up the next phase of the Netflix shows, as Moon Knight, Blade, and Ghost Rider are being considered.”
I’m not sure if Marvel will be considering adding Mephisto as the big bad of the series, but with Doctor Strange and Iron Fist getting ready to introduce the Supernatural elements in the MCU, this might work.
Who is Mephisto?
Mephisto is an extra-dimensional demon whose origin is unknown. He rules a fiery pocket dimension that he calls “Hell” or “Hades”although it is neither the Hell of the Christian religion nor the Hades ruled by Pluto, the Olympian god of the dead. More at Marvel Wikia.
