Netflix took to Comic Con in San Diego to unveil the new trailer for it’s upcoming “The Defenders.”
The miniseries, which is part of the Marvel Universe, unites Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and the Iron Fist. Together, the four set out to save New York City from The Hand.
Each of the heroes has had their own introductory series. Charlie Cox introduced us to Matt Murdock in “Daredevil,” and continued to entertain audiences with a second season that introduced an equally popular Punisher (Jon Bernthal). Krysten Ritter gave us “Jessica Jones,” fighting inner demons while battling a terrifying enemy. She also introduced us to “Luke Cage,” played by Mike Colter. His super strength was necessary when facing his own past. And Finn Jones brought his mystical force to “Iron Fist.”
Other stars in “The Defenders” include Sigourney Weaver (“Avatar”),and Scott Glenn (“The Leftovers”). Elodie Yung returns as Elektra, Elden Henson as Foggy, and Rosario Dawson as Claire. And there will be more familiar faces, too.
At the Comic Con panel in San Diego, fans in Hall H got a big surprise. Netflix screened the first episode of “The Defenders.” But everyone else has to wait until all eight episodes are available on August 18.
