We are still waiting in anticipation for the Iron Fist Netflix series in March, but Marvel is whetting our appetite for the team up series, Defenders which is due to air later this year, with some epic new images.
Entertainment Weekly published the first look at the Defenders and provided some new information about what we can expect when the series airs.
The series begins with each one of our heroes: Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones) finding themselves at the offices of Midrand Circle to investigate that giant hole which went unexplained in Daredevil season two. Each of their individual investigations to the strange happenings in New York led them to the same place which causes them to work together to sort this out.
Marco Ramirez, the showrunner, said to EW, “Every one of them is following their own trail of breadcrumbs, trying to unpack a mystery in New York…We wanted them all caught off guard. Once they’re in that room together, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, s—, who are you?”
EW also learnt some information about the villain in the series, played by Sigourney Weaver. Not much is known about her character other than the fact that her name is Alexandra, and she has no code name or comic book history.
Marvel’s Defenders will stream on Netflix from Summer 2017.
