Marvel's The Defenders trailer is out: Watch the team unite, to save New York from chaos
After battling their individual demons in the various boroughs of New York, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are finally ready to become the superhero team they were always meant to be. At least sort of.
The trailer for Marvel's the Defenders has been released, giving fans their fist look at the four street-level superheroes fighting together.Of course, before they can officially join forces, the leads from Netflix's four previous Marvel shows have to meet one another.
The trailer opens with Jones (Krysten Ritter) being questioned by Misty Knight (Simone Missick), the Detective first introduced in Marvel's Luke Cage, for interfering with her investigation. Before Jones can incriminate herself in any way, in steps Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) claiming to be her attorney.
In another part of town, Cage (Mike Colter) is having a heart to heart with Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who suggests the Harlem hero might benefit from meeting another one of her friends. But it looks like before any official introductions can be made, Cage runs into Danny Rand (Finn Jones) in a dark alley under less than ideal circumstances.
While Rand seems to believe the four heroes make quite a team, Jones is less than enthusiastic. But that might be because the enlightened Iron Fist can't figure out a way to describe the superpowered investigator other than "whatever it is you are."
In addition to spotlighting these initial meetings, the trailer warns that a war for New York is brewing. The only way to save the city is for "the devil of Hell's Kitchen, the smart-ass detective, the righteous ex-con and the kid with a glowing fist" to work together.
Will the show live upto the expectations set by Daredevil and Jessica Jones? Or will it disappoint like Luke Cage or Iron Fist? The trailer doesn't seem to make any sense or leave fans with a sense of excitement. Instead it leaves you with a cringe worthy sense of dread to endure the next bad Marvel production with this dimly lit, 'dark' show. And how many times does New York need saving?
Sigourney Weaver's mysterious villain Alexandra also makes an appearance in the trailer. She confronts The Defenders at a Chinese restaurant to offer them some advice. " The more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you," she says threateningly. The trailer also confirms (Daredevil character) Elektra’s resurrection, which was hinted at in a short teaser that Netflix released Tuesday. Here's the trailer of the show which will stream on Netflix from 18 August:
