Question about Marvel series filmed in New York…

This is a question for those who watch any of the recent wave of Marvel superhero shows that have been shot in New York: Daredevil, The Defenders, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and any others I might not be aware of. I need to know if these shows have any fight scenes shot on recognizable locations in New York. If so, which locations? And how extensive are the fight scenes?

I’m asking because I watch a lot of Japanese superhero shows, specificially Kamen Rider and Sentai (Power Rangers) shows, and they use Tokyo locations all the time for massive fight scenes, e.g. office plazas, waterfront parks and stadium/arena parking lots (see pix below). I even visited some of those locations during my Japan trip last year. So I was wondering if there was an American equivalent to these shows.

Thanks.

For the TV shows, most locations are nondescript areas of "Hell's Kitchen".

A lot of filming is done in brooklyn.
But, there are fight scenes at Bethesda Fountain in central park, Luke Cage's bar in Jessica Jones is Vazacs horseshoe bar (also used in tons of movies like godfather 2), Matt and Foggy's pub is the Turkey's Nest.
A lot of Luke Cage was filmed in Spanish Harlem, colleen wing's dojo entrance is in Chinatown
My friend excels at finding these locations. We've done a few tours too and planning another in october.

I'd guess the Rand building is in Manhattan somewhere.

I'd love to see the Bethesda Fountain scene. That's the kind of thing I'm looking for. What show was it in and which episode? Thanks.

Wow, I figured it was filmed in Vancouver or Toronto, like practically everything else these days.

Iron Fist. Second to last episode.
Friend and I went by as they were setting up and rehearsing. But they filmed really late at night.

If you've seen John Wick, there's a scene towards the end inside the tunnel under the stairs

Thanks, Geddlo. I found a clip on YouTube that has two fight scenes in Bethesda Terrace from that episode. Much appreciated.

According to this list it was also used in Jessica Jones but I don't recall if it was a fight scene or not.

Re: Question about Marvel series filmed in New York…

I've been trying to find a good clip on YouTube to illustrate what I'm talking about in the Japanese shows. Here's a Kamen Rider clip that comes close in its use of a Tokyo location for a fight scene:
