After 5 seasons (2 Daredevil, 1 for everyone else) of single focus Marvel Netflix shows, The Defenders are assembled this summer in the massive crossover event we’ve been waiting for. Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand are brought together by Stick as the machinations of the Hand, including bringing back a possibly evil Elektra, are a bigger threat than anyone one Defender can handle and there’s also a mysterious new villain played by Sigourney Weaver in the mix as well. The quality of all the individual seasons is up for debate but it still looks like it’s going to be a ton of fun to see Iron Fist try to punch Luke Cage or Matt Murdock representing Jessica Jones against Misty Knight and there’s a splash page style sequence in the trailer where all four Defenders are battling down a hallway that looks pretty great. All 8 episodes drop on Netflix on August 18th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
