The Defenders Trailer

Tomorrow brings the assembly of Marvel superheroes known as The Defenders to Netflix, marking the first time Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) have teamed up to take on a threat. And one final trailer for The Defenders shows just how deadly that threat may be.

With less than 24 hours before the first season of The Defenders debuts, Netflix has released one final peek at the series, and it features quite the menacing voiceover and ominous words of wisdom from Sigourney Weaver as the new villain, Alexandra Reid. Honestly, just this little pep talk alone for The Defenders makes her one of the better villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Watch the trailer to see for yourself.

While these superheroes must come together to defeat Alexandra Reid, the trailer reveals some moments where they’re not getting along too well. Or maybe it’s just Iron First, who has a problem with everybody since there’s a moment where he punches Daredevil in the face and a quick shot where Luke Cage appears to be throwing a jab his way. We know these heroes aren’t too keen on being a team at the start of this series, so maybe it’s just the same growing pains that the Avengers went through when they first assembled in 2012.
