Marvel has released a new batch of promos for the upcoming superhero team-up Netflix series The Defenders.
Plot details for The Defenders are still under wraps but the series will follow Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones Krysten Ritter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) as they put their resources together to take on a mysterious businesswoman named Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver. The biggest clue we have so far is that the threat the heroes face somehow revolves around the offices at Midland circle, which happens to be where Daredevil and Elektra (Elodie Yung) discovered the massive hole in the ground in season two of Daredevil.
The posters which were released on Twitter earlier tonight reveal the street level heroes of the Netflix corner of the MCU, each packed with the heroes own unique flavor over top a snippet of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” heard in both the SDCC teaser as well as the trailer. In addition to the solo promos for each hero, two other promos were released, one of which combines each of the solo promos together, as well as another that features The Defenders themselves united and ready to save New York.
