While the Hero of Harlem looks to reunite with Iron Fist in the upcoming second season of Luke Cage, a new clip teases another team-up: Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, who met last year on The Defenders, are back in action, and wearing colors that will be familiar to fans of Marvel Comics’ Daughters of the Dragon.
While both women are commiserating over drinks in a bar, Misty (Simone Missick) is approached by someone angry with the NYPD detective over her role in his brother’s incarceration. As things escalate into a full barroom brawl, it’s clear Misty is still growing accustomed to the loss of an arm during The Defenders, although she still manages to hold her own. As the fight begins to turn ugly, Colleen (Jessica Henwick) joins in on the action, employing her own formidable martial-arts skills to help her friend dispatch their opponents.
Missick received critical acclaim in the first season of Luke Cage for her performance as the intuitive, no-nonsense detective Misty Knight, while Henwick’s Colleen Wing was one of the better-received performances in the first season of Iron Fist. The duo first crossed paths in the Netflix miniseries The Defenders, where Misty ultimately lost an arm hand during a confrontation with The Hand. Despite this, it looks like the detective hasn’t lost a step as she fights alongside Wing.
