At New York Comic Con, it was revealed that Sigourney Weaver will be the big bad in Marvel’s The Defenders!

After Finn Jones, star of Iron Fist, left the stage (not long after premiering the trailer for the show), he soon returned with some friends: the stars of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage! The Defenders assembled for the first time ever.

There’s no word on who Weaver will play just yet, but the promo art for the show suggests it’s the Hand: the villainous organisation in Season 2 of Daredevil, and the nemesis of the Iron Fist. Seeing this team come together to take on Weaver is just too awesome to comprehend.

We’ve just watched and reviewed Season 1 of Luke Cage, learned that Iron Fist premieres on March 17, and met new members of The Punisher series. Marvel and Netflix are on a role!

The Defenders are set to film later this year, in preparation for a 2017 release.
