Though Madam Gao has only appeared in two shows in the Marvel/Netflix universe, her presence has been very integral to the Defenders lives.
It was previously teased that actress Wai Ching Ho would once again play a role in the next chapter of Danny Rand’s story. But with no concrete word on a Iron Fist season two, and when it would arrive, it was questionable whether viewers would get to see Madam Gao on screen anytime soon.
But this past weekend, at Comicpalooza in Houston, Luke Cage star Mike Colter confirmed Gao’s return in The Defenders, according to MCU Exchange.
Both Colter and Finn Jones, who was also present, were reportedly asked which characters would be showing up in The Defenders. Fans began to shout ‘Madam Gao,’ to which Colter confirmed her appearance saying, “We saw Madame Gao [in the trailer]. Gao’s in it.”
If you’ve seen the trailer, you’d know that Madam Gao is nowhere to be found in the two minutes, making Colter’s confirmation the first.
Madam Gao will most likely be joining Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra and Elodie Yung’s Elektra as the primary antagonists.
Are you excited to see Madam Gao return? Let us know in the comments.
The Defenders arrives on Netflix on August 18th, 2017.
