Forget The Avengers, we know who our new favourite superhero team is.
The first trailer for Marvel’s The Defenders has arrived, teasing an epic alliance that’ll see Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones) finally coming together to take on The Hand.
The brilliant Sigourney Weaver also makes an appearance in the trailer as the series’ villain Alexandra, threatening The Defenders and looking every bit the powerful New York force. Check it out below:
The trailer teases so many great moments including an action-packed hallway fight sequence, and plenty of side eye on Jessica Jones’ part. Finn Jones’ Danny Rand also looks to be filling the role of little brother of this makeshift family, with his bright-eyed optimism being met with sarcasm from the more seasoned members of the group.
While Iron Fist wasn’t met with the same level of acclaim and fanfare of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, we have a feeling this upcoming team-up should have no problem getting Marvel back on track.
The Defenders will drop on Netflix August 18.
