The Defenders, a team up of all of the Marvel Netflix TV superheroes, is coming very soon to our computers and TVs. The show which sees Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and the Iron Fist join forces will be released on the 18th of August. Ever since the series was first teased, fans of the shows and comics have been waiting with baited breath for the crossover series to come to life, and that wait is nearly over.
Today, Netflix released the first official trailer for The Defenders, and it is pretty epic. You can check out the trailer below:
The trailer doesn’t really show us much by way of the story, but serves more to show us how the various characters from the different series meet up. They all seem to be investigating the very same thing, and at first don’t take too kindly to the others butting in.
We see the invincible Luke Cage take on the immortal Iron fist, and it looks pretty awesome. Matt Murdock bails Jessica out after getting a police informant killed, and presumably Luke and Jessica bring the others together.
We also get a good look at the villain of the piece, played by the legend Sigourney Weaver. There is still a lot of speculation as to what villain she will be playing in The Defenders. Some people believe she may be the Beast of the Hand. Others think she might be the head of IGH, a secret paramilitary group. IGH previously supplied the drugs that allowed Will Simpson to heal faster and gave him enhanced strength in Jessica Jones.
What we do know, especially from this trailer, is that The Defenders looks like it is going to be awesome.
We have been spoiled by Marvel and Netflix lately, with them releasing a teaser yesterday revealing the resurrection of a dead character.
