This is what we have been waiting for – Defenders Assemble!
Netflix has released a trailer for the highly anticipated miniseries The Defenders set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Everything from Daredevil season 1, which premiered in April 2015, has led to this team up of Marvel’s edgiest heroes.
The Hand has played a sizeable role in each of the series which comprises of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Each series has time after time proven that The Hand is a force not to be taken lightly. The Defenders will appear to be final battle against The Hand, which presumable will be lead by Alexandra, portrayed by notable and award winning actress Sigourney Weaver.
Despite Marvel’s Iron Fist‘s rather lack-luster reviews from critics with some spouting ludicrous claims of white-washing, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) is still very much part of the team. The trailer shows him having some “fun” with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) which let to him using the Iron Fist on the presumably invincible man – a rather epic shot.
The trailer also shows how Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) meets up with Daredevil AKA Matthew Murdock (Charlie Cox). Apparently, Jones gets herself into some legal trouble led by Misty Knight (Simone Missick) which causes Murdock to get involved. In the midst of all the action and narration, the trailer manages to throw some humorous moments, most of which involves throwing shade at Iron Fist. Rosario Dawson, who portrays the character Claire Temple in all the shows, is also seen to bridge the team together – specifically Danny Rand and Luke Cage. Without a doubt, Temple is going to have a much large role in the Defenders than her previous supporting roles.
With only 6 episodes in the season, The Defenders is going to be one fast paced action show you would not want to miss. Watch the trailer below:
The Defenders will be available on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
