While those in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con got an exclusive first look at the premiere episode of The Defenders during Marvel’s Hall H panel on Friday evening, those who weren’t lucky enough to sit in will still get a brand new look into the epic team-up of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. (And let us reassure those of you who weren’t there: don’t worry–the crowd LOVED the episode). Take a peek at the second trailer for Marvel’s The Defenders.
Things are getting intense in New York City, and Stick’s long-prophesied war for New York seems to finally be here. Sigourney Weaver’s character, Alexandra, is out to take down New York City (called the fifth Defender by Jeph Loeb in today’s panel), and it looks like she’s got one formidable ally in the recently-resurrected Elektra Natchios. According to the info we learned in today’s panel, Elektra came back from the dead without her memory, so she’ll prove a significant force for the Defenders.
While the action looks amazing, and I can’t wait to see how our Defenders save New York City, I’m personally really excited to see the chemistry between the four (each of whom had their standalone shows renewed for a new season). While Luke Cage and Danny Rand are set to become fast friends in the series, the snark between Jessica Jones and Matt Murdock is too fun to miss. If this trailer has got totally hyped up, fear not. The Defenders is set to his Netflix on August 18. So make your binging plans now!
