New ‘The Defenders’ Trailer Promises Blood, Revelations + More
Marvel’s street level squad, The Defenders, made an impact at San Diego Comic-Con with a new, action-packed trailer.
Marvel’s grand scheme with Netflix was to create multiple shows that lead into this action-packed awesomeness. With Comic-Con going on in San Diego right now, Marvel had a surprise for those in attendance with not only a new trailer (which you can see below), but also the first episode of the series, The Defenders.
Billed as the “street-level Avengers,” The Defenders combines all four of Marvel Studios’ current series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) and unleashes them as a super team worth binge-watching. To make matters more interesting, Sigourney Weaver serves as the main attraction in the trailer, the villainess Alexandra, who is helping The Hand tear New York asunder.
Elektra returns, also under the control of The Hand, leading into the possibility of a rematch between Daredevil and her from Season Two.
Don’t let us ruin the rest of this for you. Check out The Defenders trailer below and be ready when the gritty super-team premieres on Netflix on Aug. 18.
