Netflix and Marvel release The Defenders full-length trailer

Marvel and Netflix have released their first full trailer of their upcoming series, The Defenders. The Defenders is a series that follows the 4 main heroes from the Netflix Marvel-produced superhero shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. In the trailer, you can see how dysfunctional of a team they start out to be when they first meet. Daredevil, played by Charlie Cox, Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, Luke Cage played by Mike Colter, and Iron Fist played by Finn Jones, have to work together to defeat the ominous villain of the series, Alexandra, played by the talented Sigourney Weaver. Supporting cast from the individual series will include Claire Temple, played by Rosario Dawson, Misty Knight, played by simone Missick, Stick, played by Scott Glenn, and Elektra, played by Elodie Yung.

Synopsis: “Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

Luke Cage’s team up with Iron Fist dates back to the late ’70s, as they were in a series of comics that debuted them as partners. The Defenders was originally a comic book series released in 1971 that first featured Dr. Strange bringing together The Hulk, Namor, and Silver Surfer to help battle a supernatural threat. Luke Cage was later introduced into the comic book series, as many of its characters were being rotated out. In  The New Avengers storyline, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones were working as body guards for Matt Murdock, which eventually lead them to joining Captain America’s side during the infamous Civil War, where Luke Cage had one of the best story arcs in the series.

You can catch all eight episodes of The Defenders when it hits Netflix on August 18, 2017.
