One Final 'The Defenders' Trailer Before They Unite to Save Manhattan

Marvel's The Defenders which premieres globally tonight, August 18, 2017 at 12:01am PT, follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. Cast as the anti-Avengers, this latest Netflix show underscores Marvel's ambitions and ability to wring value out of characters that aren't exactly household names.

Alexandra is certainly relishing that power in this trailer as we see her in action meeting the heroes who would oppose her. To which Luke Cage counters with "For all your talk of life, you sure bring a lot of death".

I'm very excited to see this mash-up of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, as well as characters from their respective shows. Marvel's The Defenders hits Netflix on Friday. Sigourney Weaver takes villain duties for this eight-episode series and characters from the solo series make appearances, including Elektra (Elodie Yung) and, of course, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who has appeared in all four shows and makes the initial introductions.

After what seems like an eternity since we plowed through the nightmarish Iron Fist, The Defenders is finally here, tomorrow, to wash it all away. Will fans see their "Daughters of the Dragon" dreams come true?

He continued: "When we started Defenders, the Iron Fist writers' room had just started so when we asked what happens in episode 13 they didn't know". We know the four heroes don't begin off the bat as friends. will these two powerful heroes be able to settle their differences and get along? The series is, and was only ever, meant for people who've been following the saga from the beginning - so why waste so much screen time on labourious, drawn-out scene setting? Weaver's casting is ideal for the role, bringing gravitas and menace to a character who is also desperately vulnerable in ways we won't spoil.

It's Morning Radio Personality Trish Walker! Jessica Jones isn't exactly what you would call a team player. Maybe they should go back there to look for ideas to improve The Defenders' inevitable Season 2.
