This August, the culmination of Marvel’s Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist finally premieres when The Defenders streams for fans’ viewing pleasure. Seeing The Defenders assemble together in the show’s first official trailer was already exciting, but seeing certain characters interact with others continues to increase the hype.
The Defenders will feature our four heroes confronting the different environments that each of them individually live within. Thankfully, a brand new motion banner features one of our heroes exploring a place where one of her fellow Defenders frequents.
This The Defenders motion banner depicts Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) with her trusty camera in hand exploring Colleen Wing’s (Jessica Henwick) dojo as seen in Iron Fist. You can see the promo down below, courtesy of Twitter:

We already know that Colleen Wing is going to appear on the show, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if we see her and Jessica interact. I am definitely curious to see how their dynamic together onscreen is like.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Marvel’s The Defenders stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, Deborah Ann Woll, Simone Missick, Elden Henson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Rachel Taylor, Rosario Dawson, Scott Glenn, Jessica Henwick, Elodie Yung and Sigourney Weaver.
Marvel’s The Defenders is set to debut on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
