But Marvel has already said those 4 characters are being tied into a mini series and calling it "The Defenders". So why Defenders and not Heroes for Hire, which is the much more accurate team name?
My only guess is that The Defenders is a more marketable name and might draw in more viewers if people associate Defenders being similar to Avengers.
: If the Marvel Studios monster keeps throwing
