Marvel Defenders on Netflix

So the trailer for Marvel’s Defenders on Netflix was released today and I have to say that I am really looking forward to this. Taking place approximately one month after the much-maligned Iron Fist, the four heroes (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) are brought together by as-yet unknown circumstances (and Sigourney Weaver…) to defend New York City.

I should really say unknown circumstances, as it clearly involves the Hand and Elektra, but thus far there is little to no information about Sigourney Weaver’s character. I had been somewhat hopeful to see Wilson Fisk, AKA the Kingpin, making his return in this series, but it doesn’t seem that he will, unless it’s being kept secret. Weaver’s character actually seems to be taking the position I expected him to. Who she is and how she comes into conflict with the four heroes will be interesting to discover, as will the fate of Madame Gao and Davos, both of whom were last seen in Daredevil. Certain supporting characters will be part of the story, including Foggy and Karen from Daredevil, Jeri Hogarth from Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, Misty Knight from Luke Cage and Colleen Wing from Iron Fist. Claire, who has been in every series, will also be involved. As for other important characters, I haven’t heard.

On a side note, I really wouldn’t mind seeing a spin-off from this involving Misty and Colleen, and perhaps Claire. One would think that a series of strong female characters kicking butt and taking names would have appeal, especially given the diversity of the actresses playing them.

Take a look at the trailer below and tell me what you think. Are you looking forward to it? Does it hold no appeal for you? Are you still irritated over Iron Fist and thus turned off of Marvel’s Neflix universe?

I’d love to hear!

    The trailer for the Defenders looks great with a lot of action packed scenes. The special effects look awesome, I can imagine what the rest of the movie has for us to see.

    I like the strong female characters, and have seen Sigourney Weaver in other movies where she plays a major role. This one suits her well.

    I’m looking forward to watching it, and it can’t come soon enough!

    • Hey there.

      The big problem for me is that they are releasing the trailer too early! I know they want to build hype, but it’s still over 3 months away! I hate waiting.

      I think it looks really good. I remember when I saw the Avengers in the theater and how neat it seemed to finally see these different movies come together in a way that we’d never seen before. While Defenders doesn’t have quite the same effect (I guess we’re used to cross-overs now…) it still has an element of it. It’s neat to see 4 different series, each with it’s own tone and vibe, coming together like this. Seeing how the different personalities mesh (or fail to…) should be interesting as well. I really hope it will be good.

      Thanks for commenting though! After it airs, you’ll have to come back and share your opinion!
