the defenders poster

“There’s no us in team,” the caption for the new motion teasers for Marvel’s Netflix series The Defenders claims. But Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist all look pretty cozy — and fierce — in the just-released poster for the series.

The four superheroes who fight on the streets of New York glare at no one in particular in the new poster and key art, looking like they came straight out of promotional material for a ’90s network TV drama. And I mean that in the best way, because those early 2000s promos on The WB were nothing short of amazing.

Check out The Defenders poster after the jump.

Defenders

The streetwise heroes of New York finally meet in the trailer for The Defenders, the miniseries that every Marvel-Netflix series has been building up to since Season 1 of Daredevil dropped in 2015.

Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand (Finn Jones), meet in a clash of fists and personalities, brought together by nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) and Stick (Scott Glenn) to defend New York against The Hand and a mysterious villain played by Sigourney Weaver.

The Defenders details / Trish Walker and Jessica Jones

After literally years of hype, Netflix has finally started pulling back the curtains on The Defenders, the crossover series that brings together Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). Last week we got our first official look at the heroes all together and our first glimpse of Sigourney Weaver‘s villain; today we have still more new photos plus a whole bunch of new details about the characters, their relationships to one another, and how The Defenders will tie them all together.  Read More »

The Defenders - Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter)

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.

See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »

The Defenders first look

First announced over three years ago, Marvel’s The Defenders is finally coming to Netflix this summer. And we’ve got the first look to prove it. A new promo image brings together Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) for the very first time in their beloved hometown of New York City.

Along with that photo, we’ve also got new quotes from showrunner Marco Ramirez about how exactly it is the Defenders come to join forces, and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb on what makes the Defenders different from certain other superhero teams (like the one headquartered just across town at Stark Tower). Check it out below.

bullseye

We’ve now had two seasons of Netflix’s Daredevil tv series which has introduced a lot of classic antagonists: The Kingpin, Elektra, The Hand and Punisher. But the biggest omission so far has to be Bullseye, a merciless assassin that never misses his mark, able to turn anything into a lethal weapon. Daredevil star Charlie Cox is fighting to bring in Bullseye for Daredevil Season 3, but some of his co-stars don’t want it to happen.

Daredevil Season 2 release date

Way back in 2013, Marvel announced a deal with Netflix to launch four new series, culminating in an event miniseries that’d bring all four new heroes together. So far, that plan has gone swimmingly: Daredevil and Jessica Jones have both premiered to rave reviews, and Luke Cage and Iron Fist are already well underway. And now it seems we can expect the fifth and final piece of that puzzle to take shape in the not-too-distant future. According to Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil, The Defenders will be shooting later this year.  Read More »

Daredevil Season 2

The first season of Daredevil had a damn good villain in Wilson Fisk — one of the best in the MCU, along with Loki and Kilgrave. So how does the show top that in season 2? Well, by bringing on not one but two classic figures to antagonize our poor beleaguered devil of Hell’s Kitchen: a hardcore vigilante known as the Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, and a dangerous former flame called Elektra, played by Elodie Yung.

The final trailer for Daredevil season 2 debuted earlier this week, but today Netflix served up another little taste of the trials and tribulations to come in the form of a new featurette. This one focuses on Daredevil and the Punisher, with Bernthal and Charlie Cox on hand to talk up their characters. Watch the Daredevil season 2 featurette after the jump.  Read More »

Daredevil Season 2 release date

We’re just days away from the second season of Daredevil, and by now you probably already know whether you’re in or you’re out. If you tore through season one and can’t wait to return to Hell’s Kitchen, you’ve surely cleared your weekend schedule so you can binge without restriction; if you didn’t care for season one, you probably haven’t bothered keeping up with all the updates on season two anyway.

But just in case a few of you need a nudge into the “in” column, Netflix and Marvel are getting in one last Daredevil trailer just under the wire. And yes, it’s got plenty of Jon Bernthal as the new Punisher and Elodie Yung as the new Elektra. Stick (Scott Glenn), Claire (Deborah Ann Woll), and Foggy (Elden Henson) all make appearances as well. Oh, and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is there, too. Watch the Daredevil season 2 final trailer after the jump.  Read More »

daredevil season 2 teaser

Daredevil season 2 arrives on Netflix in a little over a week and I’m already planning to binge the entire thing in a sitting or two. After all, I’m still high over how much I enjoyed Jessica Jones and the early reviews for this new season suggest that everything that worked about about the first 13 episodes continues to work here. Heck, I’m already planning to have a deep dive on the entire season ready to go the Monday after the premiere. I do this because I care.

And I also do this because there’s a lot of promising stuff going on in Daredevil this season, especially the additions of Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle and Elodie Yung‘s Elektra to the cast. A new teaser has arrived highlighting these new additions, giving us a nice look at their costumes and offering everyone in the comments section something new to fight about.
