The Defenders Meet In The Usual Fashion In Brand New Trailer

Credit: EW

The Defenders are crashing into Netflix come August 18th. While that feels like ages away, we can exercise some patience.

Not a lot, but some.

The wait is long though. While Iron Fist was a stumble of a series, it hasn’t dampened my enthusiasm to see this team-up happen. We’ve been waiting years for this.

(And maybe Danny will do better with a new showrunner and not having to carry a show? Maybe?)

Of course, the best news for Defenders fans will be to see some actual footage of the series. Not the quick glimpses that we’ve been getting, but actual real honest to God footage.

Well Netflix has heard our pleas, today we saw the first full-length trailer for the highly anticipated miniseries event.

And it looks a-maz-ing. From Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) representing Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) to Luke Cage (Mike Colter) snorting at Danny Rand’s (Finn Jones) title of the Immortal Iron Fist, everything looks pitch perfect. That thing Matt wears on his head? Jessica’s scarf. We also see Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Rosario Dawson of the real hero of the MCU, Claire Temple.

But wait! There’s more.

Sigourney Weaver makes her Marvel debut in this trailer. And she looks stunning. I am ready to see her wreck the Defenders.

There’s just so much going on in this trailer that you really need to watch it multiple times. Gimme the miniseries Marvel! Give it now!

The Defenders hits screens August 18th.
