To much anticipation, Marvel and Netflix’ latest show The Defenders will finally arrive in a few short days. A culmination of its predecessors Iron Fist, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, the show is primed to be a small-screen and “street level” version of its mammoth silver screen equivalent The Avengers.
Starring Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Iron Fist), The Defenders will also bring back characters from the previous four shows (Misty Knight, Foggy Nelson, Stick, Colleen Wing, Claire Temple) and introduce Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra, the latest villain. Daredevil’s conflicted love interest Elektra returns as well, to round things out.
Ahead of its August 18th debut on Netflix, a final, brief trailer for The Defenders has been released, and it can be seen below.
