When the superhero goodness is coming from all directions leading up to San Diego Comic-Con, you can always count on Marvel to get in on the party. On Wednesday, while many continue to wait for another trailer for Marvel’s next Netflix hit The Defenders, a new promotional image for the series from Empire’s latest issue surfaced online.
You can check out the image below:
The image puts Charlie Cox’s Daredevil front and center as the only suited-up hero beside Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter holding a manhole cover as Luke Cage and a battle-ready Finn Jones as Iron Fist in what looks to be early promotional material for the team-up series that will follow five total seasons of Marvel-Netflix shows.
Missing from the image is Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple who has been the connecting tissue of each individual series. As to who The Defenders are preparing to fight, that may be unclear, but a safe bet would be that Sigourney Weaver will have a hand in it as main antagonist Alexandra.
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.
The Defenders comes to Netflix Aug. 18.
