Jessica Jones, meet Matthew Murdoch. Luke Cage, meet Danny Rand’s Iron First.
The first full trailer for Marvel’s The Defenders has arrived — and it packs quite a few literal punches, sassy one-liners, and gritty meet-cutes between our favorite Netflix heroes!
The action-packed clip blends all of New York’s hidden heroes together for the first time. When Luke Cage‘s Misty Knight (Simone Missick) calls Jones (Krysten Ritter) in for questioning, she’s surprised with a Daredevil of an attorney (Charlie Cox).
On the other side of town, Cage (Mike Colter) runs into Danny Rand (Finn Jones) as they both chase down a bad guy — and a hero-on-hero beat down ensues before they realize they’re on the same team.
The trailer also confirms the resurrection of Elektra (you can see her in the back of the hallway fight scene!) and features the debut of Sigourney Weaver as the all-knowing villain Alexandra, who shows up to share vague, sinister words threatening the newfound assemblage.
Ch-ch-check out the trailer for the miniseries (above) and catch The Defenders on Netflix August 18!
