Marvel and Netflix have been hard at work combining their successful series and characters together to form The Defenders, and it’s finally coming into fruition. In an exclusive reveal from EW, we now have character details and incredible first looks at this team together.
Before getting in to the images, we thought we’d reveal the new information. The eight episode series is set to appear in Summer, which is a first for a Marvel and Netflix show. Historically, series have either debuted in March or September/October – we already know that Iron Fist premieres on March 17, so why is The Defenders not taking up the Autumn spot? Well, it’s to make room for Jon Bernthal’s solo run as The Punisher.
Who is Sigourney Weaver playing? We’ve answered this in detail in another article! We know the foursome will run into each other unexpectedly and have to fight through hordes of bad guys in yet another iconic hallway scene – something that has become a staple in these shows. Right, let’s get into the best bit: the first look at The Defenders!
Check out Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in action sometime in the summer!
