The Defenders Trailer

Though Marvel fans may be eager to see the likes of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist team up for the first assembly of The Defenders in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the characters themselves don’t seem to be eager to be part of a team.

A new trailer for the first season of Netflix’s latest Marvel series brings all the heroes from their individual shows together to take on a larger threat in the form of Sigourney Weaver. With the series debut just around the corner, one more trailer has surfaced online, showing the street-level heroes enjoying a quick bite to eat before being thrust into action again. Watch below!

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.

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.

Here’s hoping you had the foresight to clear your calendar for this weekend, because in case you’ve forgotten, we’re just a few days away from the highly anticipated premiere of Luke Cage. And if you really did forget, Netflix has one more Luke Cage trailer here today to remind you.

Following the events of Jessica Jones, Luke heads uptown to hide out in Harlem… only to find himself battling a whole new bunch of baddies, like crime boss Cornell Stokes (Mahershala Ali) and politician Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Fortunately, he has some new friends, too, including Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who first crossed paths with Luke in Jessica Jones, and Misty Knight (Simone Missick). Oh, and Method Man. Turns out the rapper’s a big fan, in the most endearing scene from the Luke Cage trailer. Check out the latest Luke Cage trailer below.  Read More »
