One of the most highly anticipated Marvel shows could finally get an air date soon. Netflix has announced its lineup for April just a week after the premiere of "Iron Fist" and there is a huge possibility that "The Defenders" will be announced in the next month. What will happen when Danny Rand meets Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Daredevil in July?

Netflix is bound to add several new movies and shows in April, as per The Mary Sue. However, the streaming giant will also be losing some beloved classics including "Firefly" as well as all seven seasons of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". However, it is also interesting to note that a film that shares the same title as "The Defenders" will be removed from the Netflix lineup. Could this mean that the network is preparing for the upcoming premiere of the Marvel series?

The Jet Li film "The Defender" will be removed from the Netflix lineup on April 30. This has led to speculations that the streaming giant is getting ready to announce Marvel's "The Defenders" air date by May. After all, filming has officially wrapped for the series earlier this month, as per MCU Exchange. Hopefully, the highly anticipated show will premiere by July and finally solve some of the most mind-boggling mysteries on the Netflix Marvel universe.

CeleBeat has previously reported on the possibility that "The Defenders" will tackle that mystery from "Daredevil" Season 2, where Matt Murdock and Elektra Natchios discovered a large hole. In addition to that, Sigourney Weaver's Alexandra might be closely connected to one of the Defenders. The series will feature Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Finn Jones as Iron Fist and Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones. It is believed that the show will premiere on Netflix this summer.
