the defenders early buzz

The Defenders made a surprise premiere at San Diego Comic Con, nearly a month before it is set to be released on Netflix. Along with the lucky fans in Hall H, reviewers got an early peek at the Marvel-Netflix crossover event, which sees the team-up of the New York-centric heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

Early reviews of The Defenders are in and most say it’s worth the wait. An ambitious project spanning two years since the release of the first solo Netflix series, Defenders finally gets the streetwise heroes to unite — though it still takes its sweet time to do it.

“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.
