A new trailer just dropped for Marvel’s next big Netflix show, The Defenders.
The show sees major characters from Marvel’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist collide to form the Defenders in order to take down the Hand – a group of assassins heavily name-dropped throughout the four series.
The new trailer provides a first look at the group in action, meeting one another for the first time in some instances and learning to work as a team.
“The devil of Hell’s Kitchen, the smart-ass detective, the righteous ex-con and the kid with the glowing fist,” says the trailer’s voice over, and that’s exactly the kind of ill-fitting, wisecracking collective we want to see struggle. The limited dialogue also suggests wealthy young newcomer Iron Fist may struggle to fit in with the seasoned heroes.
Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, and Finn Jones will reprise their roles as the show’s leading heroes, along with supporting characters such as Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple. The trailer also reveals the return of Elektra, and Sigourney Weaver’s brand new villain.
The series is set to premiere on Netflix in just a few months, from 18th August, so prepare for a good binge.
